Jason Sudeikis plays an aggravated juggler in never-aired 'SNL' sketch

Seth Meyers gave Jason Sudeikis the chance to get his beloved, never-aired Saturday Night Live sketch about the humiliations of a juggling lessons peddler on the air as part of Late Night‘s “Second Chance Theatre” Tuesday.

Sudeikis had discussed his love for “juggling flyer” on an earlier episode of Late Night in which Meyers said the sketch is “just historic upstairs.” In it, Sudeikis plays a suspenders-wearing man who becomes enraged with the patrons of a coffee shop after realizing that no one has pulled any of the tabs from his flyer for “jugging lessons.”

The sketch is a little long, but it has some golden moments, including late in the game flubs and Fred Armisen’s impenetrable deadpan.  READ FULL STORY

'Tales from the Borderlands' Episode 1 review: Short-changed heroes

Tales-from-the-Borderlands.jpg

Tales from the Borderlands is a bit of a departure for Telltale. After two seasons of The Walking Dead and one of A Wolf Among Us, Telltale has proved the studio can deliver powerful, dramatic story and character beats like few other game studios do these days. But what if Telltale tried to be funny?

The answer to that is  “Zer0 Sum,” a funny, exciting excursion into the world of Gearbox Software’s Borderlands series with a smart meditation on the idea of trust in a world where so little of it actually exists.

Last night, Sadie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame danced with partner Mark Ballas to a Super Mario Bros. medley, one of the most famous and recognizable suites of video game music ever made.

It was pretty weird.
