SNL-Wayner's World

 

Last night saw the return of Dana Carvey to Saturday Night Live. Dana was of course a former cast member from 1986 – 1993 and created some iconic characters during his years on the show, but since leaving his career has kind of tapered off…

I’m still not sure why Dana came back, but hey, it gave the SNL team the chance to dust off a few old characters – most notably Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World. Yep, Dana was joined by comedy partner Mike Myers for the show’s cold open – and this was the result.

To be honest I’ve never been a fan of Wayne’s World – either the sketches or the movies – and last night’s skit didn’t convert me either. Aside from an okay Winter’s Bone gag and a nice wordplay on actress Mila Kunis it was all a bit weak and desperate for me…

But what do you think? Glad to see the guys back? Or was this one routine that should have stayed in the comedy archives?
