Don't Get Me Started



Molly Shannon hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend and brought her finest recurring character, Jeannie Darcy. Jeannie is a gloriously unfunny stand-up comic who tells jokes with utter joylessness. She performs with the enthusiasm of a civil service worker on the cusp of retirement. She always wears a mullet, clothes from 1987 and performs in front of a brick wall. In one sketch workers brought in a brick wall for her performance at an old-age home. Molly Shannon only started doing Jeannie Darcy late in her SNL career so there are only a few appearences before she quit the show for tv guest appearences, movie cameos and colorless best friend roles.

Here's a link for people who think Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip is funnier than Molly Shannon.

Don't get me started. Don't even get me started.
