glad to see the SNL reference

As much as I love SNL, isn't it a "The Jerk" reference? I've done that reference IRL and I either get laughs or crickets. Silly young people. :-D

This may be a double post but my first attempt isn't showing up. Or maybe it didn't show up as a reply. Anyway...Alveria, while the Christmas bit is similar to the part in the Jerk where he's leaving his home after getting sued and gathering up random things "all I need is this chair, and this remote, and...", it is not the same. 5 Christmas Wishes was a bit on SNL from, maybe the 90s? I couldn't find the clip (in the 30s or so I looked) with full images and all, but the audio is on youtube. (If the link doesn't post just search in Youtube for "steve martin christmas"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPVuHP3OXk0p.s. I would love a comment system for WoW.com that worked for Christmas. That would be spectacular.

I believe it was his opening monologue for a Christmas episode that he hosted. It is, undoubtedly, from SNL not The Jerk. The Jerk was the, "I don't need you. All I need is this pen." Similar, but the SNL one has to do with Christmas presents and world peace, which was part of his larger stand-up routine.P.S. Read his bio, Born Standing Up, absolutely fantastic.
