KB’s Geek Out Moment Of The Day Of Which Probably Doesn’t Matter To You

Hulk Hogan and Saturday Night Live Edition.So here’s something you may not know about me: my uncle is a stand up comedian, and he’s actually a pretty good one.  His name is Rich Hall (You Europeans may know him better as Otis Lee Crenshaw, a character he often plays) and he was good enough to win an Emmy Award for writing on the David Letterman Show and appeared as a cast member on Saturday Night Live for a season back in the mid 1980s.

Well as you may know, Saturday Night Live’s 40th Anniversary is coming up and VH1 Classic has been airing a marathon of almost every episode of the series (it’s almost over now).  On a whim, I searched through my cable box for anything my uncle was in and recorded his episodes from the marathon.  The last one had some special guest stars: Hulk Hogan and Mr. T., from the night before Wrestlemania.  They were in a sketch together with my uncle and it very well may be the most amazing thing I’ve seen since…..eh since the last NXT special but it was still cool to see.

    I remember Rich Hall. Wasn’t he on Not necessarily the news? I can’t believe I remember that, unless I’m wrong, in which case I don’t.

    You’re ahead of me as I’ve only seen him live once and that was on Christmas Day several years back.
