That's why I'm wasting time reading IMDB profiles of all the Saturday Night Live performers I hate. Here's part of the entry on Will Ferrell:
In 1995 he became a feature cast member at "Saturday Night Live" (1975) during the show's rapid re-casting. He was declared quite possibly the worst cast member ever during his first season. However, his talents of impersonations and range of characters shot him forward to making him arguably the greatest "Saturday Night Live" (1975) cast member ever.
That second sentence leads me to believe there's hope for the world. The third cancels that. Will Ferrell has to be the least funny famous comedian since Sir Laurence Olivier.
Okay, so Olivier wasn't a comedian. But he was funnier than Ferrell. Will Ferrell is the worst performer SNL has ever had. There's only one character he can play: the loud, obnoxious, stupid guy who's too stupid to realize how loud and obnoxious he is.
That's it. The costumes change, but the character does not.
Anyway, I'm happy to be just a few days from driving north. I need a break.
