SNL Highlights: You Can Do Anything! and Harry Potter
Last night’s Saturday Night Live was a pleasant surprise! Daniel Radcliffe was game to do anything, including ripping off his shirt to expose his slight frame, and donned an impressive American accent throughout many sketches. His time on Broadway has really given him a strong presence on stage and he seemed truly comfortable on live TV.
There were a few sketches that were strong, but two had me dying from laughter.
You Can Do Anything!
With social media and the internet allowing anyone to be famous, the sketch is spot on in it’s takedown of the “ME Generation.” Some highlights include lines like “I’ll stay, because I’m full of unearned confidence!” and “My self-esteem is through the roof because no one has been honest with me about how mediocre I am!” Every line was delivered with such eager delusional self-confidence, and sadly actually reminded me of many people I’ve come across in life. What makes the sketch so great is that it’s completely based on a kernel of truth found in the real world, and really “the world needs more singer-songwriters and fewer doctors and engineers.”
