Being an SNL fan I jumped at the chance to see one of the ‘Weekend Update’ co-hosts in action. Michael is only new on this 40th season, but he’s already proving to be a brilliant addition. I had heard about him working on ‘The Daily Show’ but apart from SNL I don’t really know his work so I really didn’t know what to expect. I think a lot of people were in the same boat. I’m typing this on my phone while lining up for the Barry’s at the Festival club so I’ll keep it short. It was great.
One thing that nearly all Australians love is hearing how crazy America is. Che’s material about being in America right now, especially as a POC went down well and everyone I think was a little unnerved about how close it was starting to relate to Australia.
