On their first night on SNL, a new featured player usually gets a little background work, or supporting a more populars castmember’s more popular character. Newb Jenny Slate went off with a BANG, not just getting her own sketch as a Host of a TRULY UNFUNNY Biker Chick talk show where the recurring gag is tackiness and the word “Frickin'”. It’s like the funnier Amy Poehler and Mia Rudolph’s Bronx talk show, which was essentially a female New Yorker’s Waynes World. Long story short Ms. Slate was about a minute and a half into her FIRST SKETCH EVER and said “FUCKING” instead of “Frickin'”…
I was watching it live, and when it dropped, her face changes immediately and then she struggled so terribly for the next agonizingly long minute, because you could see behind her eyes she was saying “Oh God! Oh God! What’d I JUST DO!!!” and could not for the life of her refocus. But She rallied back up and show MVP Kristin Wiig saved the day by coining the term for vagina ” Front Bum”, got a good laugh.
What will the future behold for young Jenny Slate? It is to be seen. Lorne Michaels is known for firing the folk that FUCK up.
