Mark Wahlberg does not enjoy parody

October 13th, 2008 // 95 Comments

Mark Wahlberg has his panties in a bunch over a Saturday Night Live sketch from last week called “Mark Wahlberg Talks to Animals.” It features Andy Samberg playing Mark as he introduces himself to barnyard animals. Unfortunately, Marky Mark hated it so much that not only does he never want to host SNL, but he wishes Joe Piscopo was still on it. Whoa! Jesus. Let’s not say things we can’t take back. The New York Post reports:

“Someone showed it to me on YouTube. It wasn’t like Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin, that’s for sure. And “Saturday Night Live” hasn’t been funny for a long time. They’ve asked me to do the show a ton of times. I used to watch it when Eddie Murphy was there and Joe Piscopo and Bill Murray. I don’t even know who’s on the show now.”

I embedded the clip after the jump which I thought was funny. Then again, I was suckered into watching Adam Sandler’s You Don’t Mess with the Zohan this weekend, so right now everything seems hysterical in comparison. I’m pretty sure my own penis could fall off, and I’d giggle like a schoolgirl.

    Wahlberg’s sense of humor is about as big as his dick.

    I agree with Marky Mark . . .stupid sketch. . . why is SNL even still on the air? They come up with one good parody a year.

  3. Dr. John Blackheart

    what the fuck is SNL?

  4. Insatiable Peter

    The sketch is dumb but maybe that’s the point. Wahlberg does take himself too seriously. Paul Thomas Anderson gave him a career.

    i like your beard. i had a beard like that in the perfect storm. you see that movie goat?

    LOL.

    how can you not find that funny?

  6. That was the first episode I had watched in 2 or 3 years, because of the Palin hype. Although I had watched regularly for over 10 years, the show seems to cycle up and down in quality, and I was barely getting a chuckle a show when I stopped watching.

    I thought this Wahlberg skit was a highlight, along with some other skits. It just poked fun at his seriously limited range in a harmless, innocent way. He seems like a bitch baby for whining about it. It would’ve been more classy for him to just shut up, I think.
    I think Wahlberg is an adequate performer in a Steven Seagal kind of way. Just don’t have him trying to show emotion or intelligence or anything complicated like that.

    Somehow I never heard about the crimes listed above. I’m disgusted. What a pathetic slime.

    I think SNL has completely turned around within the last couple years for the better, this skit was hilarious to me because it was so random! It’s not as if Wahlberg talks to animals in real life like that, but thinking about it and seeing it anyways is what makes it funny. Wahlberg takes himself too seriously if he takes offense to this!
    (Also, the skit might have something to do with his talking to a plant in The Happening? idk.)

  9. “Now I’m gonna talk to a CHICken”…He’s got the predictable idiosyncracies down good there.

    Some people think the skit pokes fun at The Happening too, where he talks to plants. I can’t get the video to play, probably all this Samantha Who clutter is gumming up my computer.

    Fuck this guy. Loads of cash because of show business and he can’t take a joke. Uptight cunt. Also, nice clothes. I hope he is coming back from a run….he is dressed like a chomo……

    Oh, yeah, “people who watch SNL are losers”. RIIIIIGHT. And SNL has hired comedic actors who HAVE gone on to fame because?????? What, they aren’t funny?
    Kristin Wiig is hilarious. No, not all skits are funny. No way, but after BEGRUDGEINGLY watching “The Happening” (Run from the wind, that was a funny remark up there), I can see why they did it that skit. I laughed, I just did.
    Mark Wahlberg is always the same. And he remembers JOE PISCAPO? Does Joe PISCAPO remember Joe Piscapo?
    What a ‘tard you are, Wahlberg. And a barely literate punk who lucked into some movies.The end.

  12. Joey

    I gotta say I agree with him on that one. SNL would go down the drain if it wasn’t for Tina Fey. Pretty soon they’ll be parodies of SNL if they don’t start hiring good writers.

  13. lobosolo

    if Markey mark was offended at this, imagine how the rest of us feel when we have to watch his horrible acting. this was spot on!!!!

  14. Danklin24

    That was fucking retarded? The goat and perfect storm thing was a bit funny but the rest was retarded as hell. Mark is right, SNL sucks. Tina was the last of the funny ones.

  15. SlyAndTheFamilyStallone

    Yeah I know, SNL has been shit for the awhile, but I’ve still watched almost every episode ( because there are the occassional moments of genius). This year has been pretty good so far, they have a good cast and I think it may get better. Hopefully SNL enters another good period!

    P.S. Fuck Marky Mark and his JC Penny cargo shorts.

  16. Wow

    It’s true, I used to love SNL, but I tried to watch it recently and couldn’t bare more than 15 mins of it. Hiring that Nickelodeon Keenan guy was a big mistake for them.

  17. Wow

    Tina Fey is the head writer now, all you idiots saying how funny she is. She is the reason why SNL sucks so bad.

  18. Urbanspaceman

    Most people who say that SNL “isn’t funny” any more don’t even watch it. People chose to remember the best sketches from the past. But even in the times of the immortal original cast, some sketches laid there and died. people forget them, just like they forget the first season after Belushi & Akroyd left. The show’s as funny now as it ever was, just different.
    As for Mark (serious actor now) Walberg, he’s not at all funny.

  19. Cali

    THIS guy had sexy arms in Saw 2. But the face is fugly.

  20. Cali

    Oh shit. I was thinking of Donnie Wahlberg. Whatever. They look alike.

  21. ha

    “Say hi to your mutha for me….” For some reason, that line cracks me up =)

  22. Maha

    That Was HILARIOUS Best impression EVER…. Mark Walburg Needs to stop being a Crybaby and grow a Sense of humor

  23. Is this the way he sees america?
    A COUNTRY FULL OF ANIMALS?

  24. ArchivingTHEpast

    Wahlberg’s right. SNL hasn’t been funny for a decade. They must be giving away advertising time.

  25. Jacline

    the clip was shitty, didn’t even make me smile. old snl was great.

  26. TC

    So why are you showing a picture of Kevin Bacon ?

  27. InternetToughGuy

    I agree, SNL hasn’t been funny in a long tme. It sucks. Immature, low-brow humor.

  28. marky marky

    Have you watched old episodes of SNL ? It always stunk. They’ve never been funny. You know what else stinks? The new season of Entourage ! What total crap this year is.

  29. Pedro the Lion

    Mark Wahlberg is easily one of the top 5 worst actors in the U.S. The Happening was the comedy sensation of the year thanks to his performance.

  30. whatever

    @79 – I have to agree, I could not stop laughing during The Happening. It was the most absurd, hilariously terrible shit I’ve seen in a long time. I was pretty hysterical during the talking to the plant scene, so this sketch was particularly funny to me.

    Tina Fey is the head writer now, all you idiots saying how funny she is. She is the reason why SNL sucks so bad.

    You’re an idiot. Seth Meyers is the head writer. Tina Fey has nothing to do with the show other than the occasional guest spot.

  32. Steve

    Marky Mark is right for the most part and the sketch itself did kind of suck

    BUT

    Samber had that voice DOWN as well as the oblivious stupidity of Marky Mark.

  33. chuck

    I am so sick of this cliched “SNL hasn’t been funny since ____” bullshit. SNL has been hit or miss from the beginning. If people were honest and objective, they would see that. EVERY season — every episode, really — has its highlights and it has its duds. I saw this sketch the other night and I laughed. I watched it again just now and I laughed. It’s not high-concept and it’s not cerebral. But somehow it works. Is it because you expect the animals to understand Mark or talk back and they never do? Is it because I’ve never seen anyone do a Mark Wahlberg impression? I don’t know. That’s the ephemeral nature of comedy. If something’s funny, it just is. Curiously, the fact that they stretch it out longer than you’d expect — something I will admit kills a lot of SNL’s better sketches — works to their advantage here. (Oh, and I do like Samberg. Why all the hateration, people?)

  34. Skit was gold, Wahlberg can feast on it.

  35. Donkey Dong

    Sorry but this was verrry funny…way better than that half assed Entourage season so far.

    Say hi to your mutha for me alright.

    I don’t care if SNL hasn’t been funny in years (although I do miss Steve Martin…) I usually don’t laugh at SNL clips anymore but I actually thought this one was semi-comical. You know, in an “I’m sitting here bored off my @ss at work and would like to fill a void” kind of way. Either way, I actually chuckled. Mark Wahlberg needs to get his panties out of a bunch–it’s just a clip.

    I thoughtthe sketch was hilarious. Best SNL seen in a while. Tho SNL is nothing it used to be. But I really thought that was a great imitation and I think Andy and Mark could do hilaaaarious skits together.

  39. THAT WAS SO STUPID

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME…..THAT WAS THE STUPIDEST FUCKING SHIT I HAVE EVER SEEN. ANYONE WHO THINKS THAT IS EVEN REMOTELY FUNNY DESERVES TO BE ELECTRICUTED IN A BATHTUB WITH A BLOW DRYER.
