Political debates are like catnip to “Saturday Night Live,” which will return this weekend – just in time for Jim Carrey to spoof Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s performance in Tuesday night’s debate. That’ll be Jim Carrey from Studio 8H, not Jim Carrey from wherever it is he normally lives.
When my son Milo begged to take a Spanish class over the summer, I thought there was a hidden camera and I was part of a reality-TV show. Forgive me for wondering what was going on since for Milo, books are akin to kryptonite. I've tried so often to find interesting tomes in his wheelhouse.

If Kevin Nealon was an animal, he would be a shark because he’s in perpetual motion. Ever since the cerebral actor-comic became a “Not Ready for Primetime Player” on “Saturday Night Live” a generation ago, Nealon has been working on a TV show or film or delivering standup.

When Eddie Murphy first appeared on “Saturday Night Live” in November 1980, the show was on the brink of extinction. Creator Lorne Michaels had departed prior to the sixth season, most of the high-profile cast was gone and critics labeled the sketch show as “Saturday Night Dead.” But Murphy, who will host “SNL” on Dec. 21 – the first time he has performed comedy on the NBC show since 1984 – became a breakout star who would later be credited with keeping the show afloat.

The past couple of weeks have been unusual for me, to say the least. After a year of hard campaigning for Congress in Texas and gradually entering the public sphere, I was hit by a sudden, blinding spotlight. But I have no complaints – it wasn’t as bad as some other challenges I’ve faced, like a sudden, blinding IED explosion. (See what I did there? “Saturday Night Live” has created a comedic monster.) On the Nov. 3 show, “SNL”’s Pete Davidson mocked my appearance – “he lost his eye in war ... or whatever,” Davidson said, referring to the eye patch I wear. His line about my looking like a “hit man in a porno movie” was significantly less infuriating, albeit a little strange. I woke up on the Sunday morning after the show to hundreds of texts about what Davidson had said. A lot of America wasn’t happy. People thought some lines still shouldn’t be crossed.
Pete Davidson apologized in person to military veteran Dan Crenshaw, who was elected on Tuesday as a Republican representative from Texas’ 2nd congressional District, for a joke he made on last week’s show.

The idea, she says in her latest one-woman show, “Older and Wider,” is that he would be the breadwinner. She could be the bread eater.
