Although this came out in 2014, this is actually a chronicle by James
Franco (also a former host) of the process in late 2008 how, over a
week, a show of Saturday Night Live is put together. You see it all
(compressed into 90 minutes), and you get to see a lot of the
spitballing of ideas and jokes, the bits and sketches that seem
genuinely funny with the cast (John Malkovich was the host and makes
for a very game one as he is a great actor with comedic timing with a
sense of humor about his career and persona), and how the producers fit
into things and how choices get made.
It may not be totally new for some, and if you've read the "Live From
New York" book it's not very revelatory on the whole, except in the
little moments. Getting to see people like Fred Armisen and Will Forte
and Seth Myers in the midst of their over-night writing marathons in
order to get sketches done for the read through is illuminating. You
get to see how these very funny people take their craft seriously, to
the point where people like Myers have comedy-fever-dreams (though when
awake, as he admits, what he dreamed about isn't as funny as he first
thought). A lot of any sort of creative process is trial and error,
though one of the fascinating things to see is how SNL operates in a
kind of imperfect system (a producer even says, you want to be a
perfectionist don't work here).
It's amazing to think about the shows that don't work - in full
disclosure I haven't watched the show consistently in years, but when I
do sit down and watch, depending on the host, there is still some
strong writing and memorable sketches and characters, again depending
on who is there - and yet look how awesome the effort is to put on the
show as a whole. It's not simply about writers and actors
(sometimes/usually both) getting together over the course of a few days
to write some goofy things to play for people like Bill Hader (who
comes off like a genius in that off-handed oh-it's-nothing way, though
one big disappointment is that a Prince song is not allowed to be used
- Franco should have just cut the scene, taken a page from the SNL
book, but whatever). Its also about the crew who put together, almost
from scratch, full sets in not days but *hours* in order to make things
work in the context of the sketches.
As can be seen some things may end up being funnier than others - I had
the biggest laughs ironically at a sketch that ended up getting cut
from dress rehearsal involving Malkovich repeating the Empire Plumbing
phone jingle through the repetition via Forte - but it's extremely
insightful into the depths of what is simply finding a way to make
something funnier, and to both make one another in the cast laugh but
also know what isn't stretching something too far. Franco's access lets
him make some good choices as a director, and I enjoyed his loose,
sometimes-fly-on-the-wall other-times-not approach (other times being,
well, when he references when HE was on the show, cause why not).
And of course, always there, whether you always notice him or not, is
