Blind Item #4 - Mark Harris Blind Item

The worst interview I ever did was with a new SNL cast member desperate to come up with a signature catchphrase. We sat alone in his empty apartment--he hadn't unboxed anything--and he tried them on me and waited for me to laugh. I still get cold sweats remembering. It never ran.

Is this Martha Raye's Mark Harris? The "I'm A Gay Papa" guy?

Tricia13 said...

Colin Jost?
Dude not funny

Jon said...

Andy Samberg.

Guesser said...

If that's the worst, you're lucky.

Rosie riveter said...

Oh, where to begin? So much of it isn't funny. This could be several

Tricia13 said...

Agree .Thought maybe a news anchor because they usually have the tag lines...ah I miss the days of” Hi, I’m Chevy Chase -and you’re not”.

Brayson87 said...

What a great time to work on material, during an interview. 😒

Natalie said...

That big dick energy guy. Forgot his name. The Ariana Grande one.
(he's not funny)

Tricia13 said...

Pete Davidson

JL said...

Entertainment Weekly’s Mark Harris. Now out of a job after 29 years. Boy did that publication roll right downhill into the crapper. Years ago it had insight, wit—and women working there.

Natalie said...

@ Tricia13 Yes. Him.

Brayson87 said...

@JL, Shitty editors love getting rid of their best journalists first, freakin' egomaniacs.

Troy Dyer said...

I think it’s someone from the 90’s
Mark has been around a while

20+ years ago it was my favorite mag.
They ruined it!

akbar johnson said...

Probably Chris Kattan because he's in the news lately. To be fair "I'll suck your dick for $20" isn't exactly a catchphrase just because he says it often.

J said...

Totally unlike the hilarious catchphrases on the show - NOT.

Blond Dahlia said...

It’s Pete

It's 100% NOT Pete. He's not a catchphrase comedy guy. It's going to be someone that's more character based. A Kattan type is a good guess, a Chevy, a Myers anyone that's character driven and had reoccurring characters.

People are just saying Pete because it's the only one they know and they like to hate on him. They don't know anything about comedy, SNL, or Pete.

Vita said...

Akbar- LOL!

Agreed- EW used to be great. Lately, Ive been seriously disappointed, but hadnt bothered to look at editor and staff changes. The ship needs to be righted, quickly!

Boy, Im not sure on Mr. Catchphrase! I'll agree with Pete bc he doesn't have any signature characters, and was probably told to work on that

yepthatsme said...

Pete Davidson!

riffer73 said...

Tracy Morgan. That guy is seriously unfunny.

Gator said...

Pete bought a house with his mother.

americanpanda said...

Akbar - LOL
LOla - I couldn't tell you anyone on SNL right now except for Pete and Colin and that's just because I hear of them on this site.

AlleyKat said...

Enthusiasm, has your sidekick Catchy quotes got anything to give this poor unfortunate?

Thorne said...

Ah stop shitting on Jost. He's funny. But not as funny as Che. Those segments where they write jokes for each other to read on air without seeing them before the show have me screaming.

I'll go with Kattan just because he's in the news and he suuuuuucks.

Lady Leaves said...

Can't stand Pete Davidson and this was before we all knew about the Ariana Grande stuff. He's not funny. Mostly he just stands there with a stupid look on his face. Many on SNL with more talent.

Kim said...

I don't think it's a current cast member. I'm going to go with someone earlier, who just seems uncomfortable in his own skin. Norm McDonald (who I kind of liked as a stand-up)

Vita said...

AlleyCat-- Brilliant!😂

HeatherBee said...

To be fair, the joke is: I’m not gay but 20 bucks is 20 bucks.

apple_seed said...

It's bizarre how the incel Trumpists are absolutely obsessed with Colin Jost. The guy gets 12 minutes of screentime, yet they know everything about him and then with clenched fists claim to "hate" him or think he's "unfunny".

Aquagirl said...

I just wanna know why Scar-Jo is marrying him? And isn’t she a bit young to already be going for marriage #3 given that #1 & #2 seemed to be over before they even began?

GentleBreeze said...

'cheeseburger. cheeseburger. pepsi. pepsi. pepsi.'?
'Jane, you ignorant slut.'?
'France. We're from France.'?
No, that would be like 45ish years ago when it was something new and quite funny.

Sd Auntie said...

i just asked that question too!! Lol

Nichole Lafayette said...

Definitely not Pete Davidson. Not his comedy style at all.

Sd Auntie said...

pete is funny
