10 Minutes of Hilarity…Just For You

Periodically, newcomers venture here to More Cowbell, see the masthead and mistake the name of the site. This blog is named after an SNL skit where Christopher Walken and Will Farrell steal the show.

Catchy phrases like “I could’ve used a little more cowbell…” and “Really use your studio space…” vie with other gems like:

I’ve got a FEVER! And the only prescription is MORE COWBELL.

Christopher Walken utters every catchy phrase, and Will Farrell delivers the laughs. And if you get hold of the entire skit, you’ll see that Jimmy Fallon is trying not to bust a gut in the background.

If you’re still low on your Saturday Night Live quota for the day, here’s the Top 10 episodes of all time, according to WatchMojo.com.


Is More Cowbell included in this list of gems? Oh yeah. Watch to find out where we rank.🙂

What is your favorite SNL episode? Is it in this montage, or is it something else entirely? Who is your favorite SNL actor of all time? Enquiring minds always want to know these things here at More Cowbell!

p.s. If you’re having trouble finding something to celebrate today, I’ve got a great one for you: 10 years ago, my future husband danced up to me in a bar called Woody’s Wharfand the rest is history. [Happy Anniversary, Honey!🙂 ]

    So great, revisiting all those. Surprised not to see the land shark, or, “It’s a floor wax.” “No, it’s a dessert topping.” “No, wait, it’s both!”

    Gilda Radner and my heartthrob, Chevy Chase (hey, so I have weird taste in men), and anything with Belushi and Ackroyd are my faves. I guess that dates me, but older SNL is better!

    Sorry Jenny. These shows mean nothing to me but the story of your dating entertained me. I haven’t dated since the club was in use, and I don’t mean the night club.

    As for SNL, I’m definitely a fan of the more classic years🙂

      Thanks, Raelyn! He and I looked at each other yesterday and went, “OMG, a decade just flew right by.”🙂 (I know, I know…compared to you and THAT MAN, we’re a baby relationship!)

  5. Happy Anniversary, Jenny! I am always looking for a quick laugh, so thank you! How can you go wrong with SNL?🙂

      You simply can’t go wrong with SNL, although I do think they’ve lost a lot of their mojo from earlier days. They still spawn mega-stars left and right, don’t they?

      • This is true. It’s hard to follow the acts of icons like, Roseanne Roseannadana🙂, John Belushi, Chevy Chase & Eddie Murphy. In my recent post I featured a video from the Carol Burnett Show of a skit with Tim Conway and Harvey Korman. They were the best!!!🙂

  6. Whoohoo! More Cowbell rules! Okay, I have to say I have some favorites. I liked the Julia Child sketch where “she” cuts herself. (I’m dark that way.) And the big hip family when the daughter is dating the conehead and gets a fever (I did mention I’m very dark. LOL).

    Happy anniversary!

    Hi Jenny.
    Happy ten year proposal anniversary. I should be so lucky. Okay, you’re funnier than all get out and your husband and kids are lucky. You’re a Siren, luring us to the shores where we can laugh our a***s off.
    Thanks, Tom

      Thanks, Tom! And I’ll tell you, it took three years to get to the proposal part of the plan – my guy is the turtle in that story. But him dancing up to me was the luckiest moment of my life.🙂

    I never laughed so much as when Jane Curtin and Chevy Chase did Point Counterpoint. I haven’t watched much SNL in recent years, so my faves tend to be oldies, including Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd as “Wild and Crazy Guys,” Gilda Radner’s Emily Litella and Roseanne Roseanna Danna, and yeah, the Cheeseburger Pepsi skit. Of course, when Steve Martin is still singing King Tut this many years later…that’s a keeper:

    Thanks for the laugh!

    Sooooooooooo much good stuff in this video and over the years on SNL. There were many years I didn’t watch a bit of it, but my faves have to be Roseanne Rosannadanna, Matt Foley “in a van down by the RIVER!” and Harry Caray’s very technical interview of a somewhat baffled Jeff Goldblum. Classics. But seriously, there’s so much awesome to choose from. Oh, and Kristen Wiig – just anything she does.😉

    Happy anniversary to you and your hubs!

  10. Jenny, I am a purist and love the original cast. Ditto what so many have said about Guilda and John … always loved the pair of John and Dan … and what about the Blues Brothers? Sad to think that two of that trio are gone.

    I don’t know if I get the cowbell yet, but loved the throwback to the first nights of Saturday Night Live🙂

  14. Oh, yeah. First time I visited your site I knew right away. That’s a classic! I’ll have to get back to you on my favorite SNL skit. There’s too many. That Walken is crazy good on that show.

  15. There are so many classic skits from SNL. Of course, More Cowbell is in that list. Always laughed at Jeopardy, Lonely Island, and any time Chris Walken was on it.

  16. Oh, Jenny, this is a great flashback! I’d forgotten about Eddie Murphy, those gold Speedos and the hot tub. So many versions of Celebrity Jeopardy had me crying while laughing. Will had the crabby, snooty part of Alex Trebek down. RIP for the SNL Chippendales.
