Brendan Gleeson Reads Marilyn Monroe’s Worrisome Fan Mail In Saturday Night Live’s Blonde Parody

In a scene parodying “Blonde,” we see Chloe Fineman’s Marilyn Monroe needing a lift of confidence earlier than going out and assembly the gang. Two individuals (host Brendan Gleeson and Heidi Gardner) are available at her handler’s request to learn some fan mail. Supposedly vetted, very similar to the scene within the movie, it begins off promising. Gleeson’s character is clearly studying the nicer stuff. However, Gardner’s character is there to undercut all progress with the ruder fan mail, punctuated with the ending phrase “not a fan.”

Read with straight faces, the joke right here is that not one of the mail was truly vetted. That, or the feedback learn by the 2 workers do not resonate sufficient for them to see the hurt. As the skit goes on, Fineman’s Marilyn begins making recommendations as she turns into extra exasperated by the fan mail, and a backwards and forwards ensues between the three characters about what to toss out and what to maintain. It’s on this backwards and forwards that we see the pure humor within the scenario, with all forged members milking their strains (however not overly so) to get most laughs. 

A sketch like this might have simply gone south (although, plainly vitality was devoted to the Try Guys sketch as a substitute). The sketch maintains the fitting steadiness of comedy with out it being steamrolled to demise. Not dangerous, “SNL”. Not dangerous in any respect.
