I still think the Superfans is about the funniest thing done on SNL ever.

I've lived in Chicago all my life on the NW side.

I never hear Chicagoans say "Da Bearce".

Where are these people? On the SE side? Or is it just made up.

BTW: SNL's version of Blago was really lame--Blago with a Queens, NY accent????

No mention of Bob Odenkirk as executive producer of "Tom Goes to the Mayor" and helping to launch Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job? Time to send C-Borelli back to Toledo.

Odenkirk: in 1988 or so, I was in Vegas and saw a "Young Comedians" set at some casino. I can't remember anyone in the lineup except one guy. He came out and swore that we would never forget his name, and then proceeded to plaster the joint with signs, robots, and a spooky "subliminal" voice all with "ODENKIRK" on them. And he was right. I never did forget that guy's name.

Jeepers Creepers Semi Star. My favorite skit from Mr. Show. That has to be one of the craziest comedy skits ever produced.
