AFTER ALL THIS TIME. IT’S BEEN A TREMENDOUS WEEK.
I LOVED SEEING ALL OF MY OLD FRIENDS HERE, MAKING LOTS OF NEW
FRIENDS WITH THE WRITERS AND THE CAST HERE.
IT’S GREAT TO BE AROUND THEIR YOUTHFUL ENERGY.
WHEN I FIRST GOT HERE TO THE SHOW, I WAS 23 YEARS OLD, AND
DAVID SPADE AND ROB SCHNEIDER WERE
25 YEARS OLD, AND NORM McDONALD WAS I THINK, 60 YEARS OLD.
I DON’T KNOW. I NEVER ASKED HIM.
I DON’T THINK HE KNOWS. BUT I HAD SOME OF THE BEST YEARS
OF MY LIFE HERE. AND I ACTUALLY LOST MY VIRGINITY
TO A WOMAN HERE IN THIS VERY STUDIO.
THANK YOU. I DON’T
KISS AND TELL, BUT IT WAS THE CHURCH LADY, SHE SAID I WAS
SPECIAL. MY WIFE AND KIDS ARE HERE
TONIGHT. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]
I ALWAYS TELL THOSE GUYS THAT WHEN I WAS ON “SNL,” IT WAS LIKE
THE GREATEST TIME IN MY LIFE AND MY DAUGHTER ASKED ME, “IF IT WAS
THE GREATEST, DAD, WHY DID YOU EVER LEAVE?”
WELL, HONEY, THERE’S A REASON. I WAS FIRED
I WAS FIRED I GOT FIRED BY SNL
BETWEEN SEASONS THE SACK
I TRIED TO CALL>>I’M JOKING, I’M JOKING. HE CALLED, HE CALLED. ENOUGH OF CRAZY SPOON HEAD
AND THE SONGS I SICK OF CANTEEN BOY
BUT I THINK THEY NOT REHIRED WELL, IT MADE ME SAD I GOT FIRED AND HE SAID SAME MAN>>CHRIS ROCK.
CHRIS ROCK IS HERE. HEY, BUDDY.
I LOVE YOU.>>HOW’S IT GOING?
>>WE WORKED ON THIS SHOW TOGETHER, RIGHT?
>>YEAH, YEAH, YEAH. WE GOT HIRED THE SAME DAY.
>>THAT’S RIGHT. WE WERE IN THE SAME CAST.
>>YEAH.>>WHY DID YOU LEAVE THE SHOW?
I DON’T UNDERSTAND.>>WHY DID I LEAVE THE SHOW?
WELL, ADAM — ON>>THAT’S RIGHT, I REMEMBER. YOU KEEP GOING AFTER YOUR DREAM.
HEY, HOW YOU DOING, PAL?>>HEY, HEY, HEY.
YOU WEREN’T FIRED.>>I WASN’T?
HOW’S THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?>>I DON’T KNOW, MAN.
YOU JUST BE PATIENT ‘CAUSE IT’S COMING SOON.

  1. Uh – this is supposed to be funny?

  2. Adam Sandler is proof you dont need any talent to be on tv or in movies

  3. The ballad—at least in the beginning and in the refrain—reminds me of another song (possible country, possible sung by a woman), but I'm drawing a blank on which one.

  4. It's funny. 1999 I joined the Army. At this point I have little to kinda comfortable. I look at actors who started in 1999. Multimillionaires. Lesson. Go be a fucking pussy, do something easy and self-centered. These fucking people. Makes me sick.

  5. Him and Jerry Seinfeld my two favorite comedians. Clean funny comedy. Sometimes a hit and miss but back in the 80s and 90s these guys were on fire!

  6. Man, I loved SNL with Rock, Farley, Sandler, MacDonald, etc. The best.

  7. Don't get me wrong Adam Sandler, Chris Farley were awesome on SNL but the comments are cracking me up. Talking about the "good old days" of SNL to me and you MUST be talking about the late 70's with John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, etc… Through the years I have loved so many of SNL's stand outs Will Ferrell, Jim Carrey, Eddie Murphy, of course Adam Sandler and Chris Farley. But those first five years were and will always be for me GOLD

  8. That cast MADE SNL must see TV then they fired everyone. After that it was pretty much just Will Ferrell and now it just feels sad every time it comes on. It hasn't been funny in about 20 years or so.

  9. Honey, Ur daddy was kinda the coolest funniest Cat alive! OK, 2nd to FARLEY

  10. Adam Sandler's net worth is estimated to be $420 million dollars.

    WHAT??

    I always thought he was like.. broke or something- I have never been interested in his movies, so I just thought other people weren't either.

    i cannot BELIEVE he has that much money, I am shook rn

  11. and the idiot executive who fired three of the biggest comedians of their generation was probably paid millions of dollars.

  12. His laugh is so genuine cute and humble. I just love Adam Sandler

  13. 1.1k people who dislikes this video hate an american treasure. SHAME ON YOU!!!!

  14. Ha! I wonder how much they had to pay him to host the show? I'm sure it was at least six figures.

  15. I just watched all Louis CK monologues and now I can't watch anything else.

  16. Wonderful absolutely wonderful the only thing that could have made this skit better is if they would have put Norm Macdonald somewhere like he could have been a Heckler in the crowd saying stuff like oh yeah join the club buddy or after Chris Rock came out have him come out interrupt do something like oh yeah you guys got fired too or something something something could have been done either way wonderful sketch loved that entire cast hope they bring adam back too host again love to watch another duet with samberg

  17. "Sandman , they fired my ass too!" Rip Chris Farley you are still remember.

  18. He's funny, sings, writes songs, does impressions, is adorable, and still got axed

  19. Remember when SNL had real talent on the show? Pepperidge farm remembers

  20. Davidson is such a no talent pos actor and comedian and his personality is, pure: give me free shit sjw crap, I just feel its impossible to like anything about a show that willingly harbours such an ungrateful cunt?

  21. Adam Sandler is the best. Fuck SNL. That show has sucked for years. Fuck Hollywood. His movies are great. Now I hear he supports Trump. I love this guy even more.

  22. Too cheesy, too cheap ; watch people with real quality of sense of humor. Like Jim Carey, Eddie Murphy maybe you can learn a few things, if you got the brain.

  23. Adam Sandler is the ONLY person who could get me to watch SNL again. They suck now. Unless of course they have President Trump as the host again. If NBC has any sense of humor and humanity they must invite President Trump to host again when his second term in office is up. TRUMP 2020!!!! Make SNL great again!

  24. Imagine if Chris Farley was still alive he would have come out for the "sandman they fired my ass too!" It would have been epic. And Farley in the grown ups movies would have been a 90s snl dream come true.

  25. Outstanding! Your influence is all over our videos! Check out what we are doing for local Veterans!!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKBv5ItRQb3kFY5K2W7nRsg

  26. I LOVE ADAM SANDLER SO MUCH! HE IS THE ONLY PERSON THAT I DONT EVEN HAVE TO KNOW BUT WHEN I THINK OF HIM in his movies…..all I do is laugh & smile! He helped make my life great!!!

  29. WTF is chris rock on ? In the last 5 years all of the sudden he looks like he's 25 again…. ….weird shit

  30. I Love Adam Sandler. He was awesome, and funny… That's My Boy. Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. Love those movies.

  31. To be honest his era wasn't funny until they all got fired will Ferrell and others changed it all

  32. They deserved this Emmy so much. Such a great show. But I will say the Emmys sucked without a host and ushers to help the ladies with gowns on and the elderly. Next year you should all wear shorts and flip flops respect them as they did you tonight.

  33. Q: Adam, what happened to your Iraqi Pete skit?
    A: It got wiped off the internet because SNL is trying to hide anything from their past that conflicts with the PC image they want to present today.

  34. Pete Davidson’s verse

    I was fired I was Fired
    After me and Grande split
    We were this close to getting married
    Till she had to call it quits

  35. He was never funny on SNL for me, always a mix of 11 year old and old dad jokes, blah

  36. I doubt he's funny enough to do it, but I would love to see Shane Gillis' career skyrocket so that he can sing his own version of this song in the future…

    – Asian Guy

  37. Sandman is f**king incredible. Now Adam Sandler has to come BACK to SNL to get them viewers. Who's laughing NOW. As Adam so eloquently put it 4 Billion Dollars LATER HE WON. NBC the No Brain Company.

  38. I don't care how popular Adam Sandler gets, he's still underrated because he's fuckin awesome

  39. Just the joy of seeing Adam Sandler ND Chris rock … Two legends on tha same stage !

  40. I hate to say it, but the 5 seasons that followed were better than any of sandlers movies (I'm sorry but Ferrel, Meadows, Kattan and Norm together was probably my favorite thing to ever watch on tv or film)

  41. He has an incredible movie coming out. He finally made my dreams come true. It’s serious and lots of crime and grit. Something out of his norm. He’s a gambler….

    A must see!

  42. I swear this song sounds so familiar but I just can’t think of what it sounds like

  43. I can totally hear Farley’s voice in my head….”Sandman, they fired my ass too!”

    I imagine him hunched over and flailing his arms as he says it.

  44. Petes bit😂😂😂😂 fucking killed me amd Chris’s timing with the “I was fired”

  45. Someone was fired from SNL, came back as host, and gave a better monologue than Sandler. That man was, you guessed it… Frank Stallone.
