One of the things that I love to do while I travel is going to Comedy Clubs whenever I have the chance. This time around while I was in San Francisco one of the shows was Chris Kattan and I got excited since I remembered him from his days in Saturday Night Live, the guy was hilarious. Plus he was in the Night At The Roxbury with Will Ferrel, one of the ridiculous movies that I still love.
So the idea of seeing Chris Kattan live was exciting and I was very looking forward to it. Of course when you have a big star comedian usually there are one or two other people who are just good comedians but not that known, the main act is usually last but this time around he was first.
I thought I was going to get some funny sketches from SNL and some funny personal experiences and how he delivers it on TV. But I was honestly very disappointed in the guy, he just kept babling on and not really getting any punch lines in. I know there are different styles of comedy & stand-up and I’m honestly very flexible but in his case he just seemed unprepared for it and was winging it on stage. He didn’t even make the effort to remember the guy’s who are performing with him on stage, and it turns out they were 10 times better. The only reason he got a 1 out of 5 is because the other guys did great while he completely bombed the act.
