SNL to air Best of TV Funhouse

TV FunhouseI haven't watched many of SNL's "Best of" specials, mainly because I don't particularly want to see sketches that I've already seen a number of times (although Chris Farley dancing at Chippendales never gets old). But the next "Best of" special I'm going to want to record. Why? Because on April 29, NBC will air The Best of TV Funhouse, hosted by Ace and Gary, otherwise known as the Ambiguously Gay Duo (voiced by Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell, by the way). Not only will the show air the best of Robert Smigel's shorts from the last 10 years -- a period where often the Funhouse segment was the only thing funny about SNL -- but there will also be a new AG Duo short.

I'm especially looking forward to the Charlie Brown Christmas parody, because Smigel so accurately apes the odd speaking patterns of the Peanuts kids-- and the ultra-cheap 1960's animation -- it's scary. If I had a TiVo, I'd probably put this on one "Save until I delete" status.

A&G are the least funny of Smigel's stuff -- but most of TV Funhouse is pure gold. I'll be watching!

Now if they'd only release "The Complete Dana Carvey Show" on DVD...

(Or should that be "The Complete Dana Carvey Show Brought to you by Taco Bell?")

Oooooooooh!!! That'd be worth it for the Ambiguously Gay Duo alone. I haven't seen them in ages..and I miss them.
