SNL Skit: 'Dyke & Fats: Video

Screen Shot 2014-03-30 at 12.59.47 PM
Last night Saturday Night Live aired a skit titled "Dyke and Fats" which features cast members Kate McKinnon and Aidy Bryant as partners starring in a 1970s-inspired television cop show. But, as host Louie CK's character quickly learns, only they're allowed to call themselves by their nicknames. 

Watch, and then let us know what you think, AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. It was more about "Gender feminist double standards" than name calling...very ironic...

  2. I love both these cast members; they're consistently a riot.

    Now, cue the dolts that will click-thru & actually take time to comment saying, 'haven't watched the show in years.'

    What's that about anyway?

  3. Not funny . . . I doubt Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly were amused, either.

  4. That was lousy.

  5. Another failed skit that could have been funny had they taken the time to actually write a story. Instead it ends abruptly after one joke. They spent more time on the introduction than the actual skit. Ridiculous.

  6. Stupid. Last night's show was hoooooorible!
    Thankfully, I dvr'd it and was able to ff thru pretty quickly. Weekend update has been the most disappointing.

  7. Homophobic.

  8. Anyone else remember when SNL actually invested in script writers?

  9. Gregory - no. They never did. What they USED to do was spend 6 minutes on a one-note premise. Now they're not scared to do a 90 second skit just for the hell of it.

    I love when people say that SNL isn't funny, cuz it just proves they're not funny. Go watch The Big Bang Theory.

  11. Uh, this skit was weak, but last night was not horrible. The very last skit was really funny, as well as Louie C.K.'s monologue, which basically was 5 or 6 minutes of stand-up.

  12. Take it out back and shoot it.

  13. calansf comment - 'horrible' could not agree more with posting. One of the worst waste of talent and last night is one of the worst this season.

  14. I thought this skit was funny and the episode in general. CK Louis was great.

  15. I mean, Louie C.K. Whoops!

  16. Barbra S doesn't need an earpiece, that is my litmus test.

  17. Not funny. But about what I'd expect from Louis CK.

    Posted by: Randy | Mar 30, 2014 8:36:03 PM


  18. So, apparently one of the writers read the article about Cagney & Lacey on Cracked a little while ago?

    Because that is the only explanation I can think of for this sketch.

  19. I loved it they should make a movie out of it.

  20. Odd that the story (and the comments) aren't mentioning that Kate McKinnon is an out lesbian.

    (and the first in SNL snow history)

  21. Liking Louis C.K., I was anticipating the episode for a while. Aside from the monologue and musical guest, it pretty well sucked (and that includes "Weekend Update"). Pretty lame skit in a pretty lame show. Too bad. :-(

  22. How come "Dyke and Fats" is supposed to be funny, but "K.ike and Fats" would be considered "crossing the line" and "in bad taste"?

    Saturday Night Live. Where going for the cheap laugh at the expense of gays is a time honored tradition.

  24. Let me explain: The long title sequence was the set up of the joke, and a joke in itself about the intros or promos of those kind of shows. The rest was the punchline.

  25. I would rather have watched a 90-minute Louis C.K stand-up than this lame SNL show. I actually said to a friend, "They have about 20 comedy writers on staff and this is the best they can do?"
