Ok, i’m italian, but i find these skits hilarious. I have friends that get offended by them, that think it’s racist, that hate me for linking these clips and rant about how the set design is not that bad or how host don’t smoke anymore on our shows.
Well, you know, exaggeration and hyperbole work very well in comedy, but still i think this is funny because it’s true. Yeah our shows may be a little flashier nowadays but, seriously, i wish our tv personalities could speak english at least half as well as Vinny does.
Also, kudos to Fred Armisen, his italian is actually flawless; ok the words he says don’t really much in the context, but they’re all correctly pronounced.
