Chris Kattan Brought His Old 'SNL' Characters to Seth Meyers' 'Late Night,' and They're Still Awful
I have no idea what kind of person might be interested in this, but I’m sure there must be someone who came of age in the 90s who has always had a weird, inexplicably affection for Chris Kattan and his terrible characters in what is literally the worst era of Saturday Night Live ever (literally, 80 percent of the worst episodes in SNL’s run were from 1996 to 2003, which are the exact years that Chris Kattan worked on the show).
Anyway, Seth Meyers is the new Adam Sandler, which is to say, he’s the guy who keeps his old SNL pals employed, even as the rest of the entertainment industry has given up on them. (Kattan’s biggest gig otherwise was as a cast contestant who was eliminated 1st in episode 2 of Guy Fieri’s Celebrity Cook-off).
Anyway, if you have a hankering to see Mr. Peepers or Mango (who are not the same character, no matter how much your brain insists otherwise), speed ahead to the 3:30 mark.
