The debut episode of this new podcast about “Saturday Night Live” is all about the classic/insane/weird/hilarious “Potato Chip,” written by Will Forte and John Solomon that aired in December of 2009. In this sketch, Jason Sudeikis plays a southern gentleman who wants to be an astronaut, but makes a fatal error during his interview with NASA official Will Forte: he eats one of Forte’s potato chips…and all hell breaks loose. Nick talks about the history of the sketch (the creation, the writing, the first read-thru, etc.), analyzes it beat by beat, and discusses the impact it has made over the years…you also find out what a “12:50 sketch” is, and how this particular one inspired such praise and utter confusion. A deep dive to start off THAT SHOW HASN’T BEEN FUNNY IN YEARS. [EP1]
