Live from New York, It's one person talking!

Apropos of Louis C.K.'s low key no-frills "just a standup set" Saturday Night Live monologue, I'm curious. Are there other examples of SNL opening monologues that deviate from the expected pattern? [more inside]

How do I get in touch with someone at SNL?

I just discovered a hilariously absurd woman on Youtube. She's completely serious, but in my opinion her video is begging to be turned into an SNL skit. How do I let someone at SNL know about this potential comedy goldmine?

Help: what SNL skit is my girlfriend talking about?

She is thinking of a skit that's she is pretty sure was on SNL (or maybe another show, like Mad TV) before 2000. The main character was a white guy with mullet-like brown hair who is easily offended. He challenges other guys to fight and acts really cocky, talking smack, but he can't maintain his muscle strength so he starts out trying to punch his opponent in the upper body, but his punches land farther and farther down on the opponent's body until he winds up on the ground. She thinks in one of the skits, he says something like, "Are you calling me a turkey???" He might also call his opponents turkeys. The setting of the skits might be a bar.

Martin Short Images

Anyone have quality screencaps of Martin Short's Saturday Night Live characters from the 1980s, e.g. Jackie Rogers Jr., Nathan Therm, the synchronized swimming guy, etc.? (FYI: At this point,I'm more interested in SNL images than stuff from SCTV.)

With a little help from my friends... finding Belushi & Cocker?

I'm looking for classic "Saturday Night Live" sketches that might not have made the "Best of..." DVDs. Namely, John Belushi performing as Joe Cocker WITH Joe Cocker! But there were far too many good ones to let them all fade into oblivion! Is there any way to find these classic sketches to save them for posterity?? Thanks!!
