Comedy skit where speaker is constantly interrupted by handler?

I remember a comedy sketch that involved a speaker making a public announcement, and throughout the presentation, they are constantly interrupted by a lawyer, PR person, or similar handler who won't allow them to say anything of substance. Even mundane details are censored. Naturally, the speaker gets very frustrated. I know this isn't much to go on, but by chance do any of you have any inkling what show this would have been? Google is failing me! [more inside]

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.

"This lady makes me spastic."

What was the "old Danish TV skit" that Jacob and Simon were planning to perform in North Korea in the documentary The Red Chapel? Can I view it on YouTube (or anyplace else) with an English translation?

Ideas for activities for a largeish group of faculty/students

I am on the planning committee of an annual event held by my grad program in which the students and faculty do various activities and performances, play games, and generally make fun of each other. I need some ideas, preferably involving laughter and/or making the faculty do slightly embarrassing stuff. [more inside]

Where's this face from?

I've had this image of a face stuck in my head for a few weeks now, and I'm sure that it's from a TV show I saw as a child. I believe the image may have come from a skit about a sketch artist trying to identify someone, and that -- within the skit -- pieces of that face were erased and re-drawn. Maybe at some point, a hat is drawn onto the top of his head? I want to say this skit may have been on Sesame Street. Can you tell me what skit I'm thinking of?
