The not funny squad!

I may be the last person on the planet to see The Hangover. I liked it a lot--good script with an interesting nonlinear narrative and solid acting. The latter part got me to realizing that Saturday Night Live, in all of its lameness, is no longer the farm league for the big screen. Instead it's The Daily Show and the ancient Freaks & Geeks.

Why the change? Perhaps it's because two of my top three UNFUNNIEST PEOPLE are from SNL. My Not Funny Squad includes:

Amy Poehler. She is no Tina Fey. Thinks mugging for the camera is being funny.

Jimmy Fallon. He's also not Tina Fey. His talk show is too painful to watch.

and the most unfunny guy of all time:

Jim Carrey. Creepy, yes. Funny? NO!
