Brutally Funny




Meet Your Second Wife - SNL


I cannot believe I'd never seen this sketch before. Just wow. The most apt way to describe this is brutally funny. It is hilarious, multi-layered, on-point and also serves up a hefty kick in the gut re: relationships between older men and much, much, younger women.


Look, I'm generally of the opinion that consenting adults can do whatever they want to between themselves, but other people do get to have an opinion and to question things like power dynamics, motivations, manipulation, maturity/immaturity etc. There are a lot of things that are legal but perhaps not quite "right" and at the same time there are a lot of instances when people might have a judgement/opinion about some aspect of someone else's life that lacks any awareness of what works or what's best for that person. I'm not here to tell you what to think about anyone you know personally, I'm just here to tell you that this sketch is genius and so biting and so fearless and it takes risks that in lesser hands might have failed horribly but which in this case make for the best kind of comedy.
