Jarrod Fairclough – Though they once called them the Mucking Fuppets, Saturday Night Live has gone on to show a deep respect for the Muppets and for Sesame Street. They’ve been parodied a bunch of times, and Big Bird and Cookie Monster have even popped up live in the studio.
Now there’s another thing to add to Muppet Wiki. Last night SNL aired this digital short called GROUCH, a parody of the new film JOKER, which shows the origin story of a guy named Oscar, played by host David K Harbour.
Being SNL, the clip is obviously NSFW, but it’s extremely well shot and very funny.
