Help me find an old SNL skit.

The sketch was at a party, and focused on one character who kept trying to make small talk with people but each time he tried he inadvertently offended someone. Tried talking about the weather, if I recall, and another character started crying, prompting others to berate him for not being more sensitive to the fact that the crying character's family member had been killed by a weatherman. Or something like that....

Is it this Kids in the Hall sketch?

This sounds like Debbie Downer.

That Kids in the Hall one is similar, but not quite it...

That sounds really really familiar. You don't by any chance remember even one the cast members who was in it.. or what decade?

You can search their transcripts online.

Was it the Seinfeld episode "The Pony Remark"? Jerry starts talking about how no one in real life has a pony, and this old lady from the old country is super offended because everyone she knew, including herself, had a pony.

Is it this one? Not a party, but Alec Baldwin and Kristin Wiig keep offending each other during their carpool with what they say. He says he hates Celine Dion. She explains how Celine rescued her from a Peruvian kidnapping, etc.

These are all hysterical, but not the one I'm remembering. Perhaps I made it up entirely....

It is not in your head Framer. I recall the sketch as well but I can't find it.
