Monday Morning Humor: The Magic of Editing

I  laughed ’til it hurt revisiting this one the other day. From the classic Saturday Night Live special on Paul Simon. Anyone who knows how NQC is filmed will get a kick out of this one.

Act I: Paul is disappointed with the opening number but is assured by the producer (Chuck Grodin) that all will be well.

“This is a dynamite opening!”

“That was a dynamite opening?”

“Not what you see here. The elements, the pieces!”

***

Act II: Paul reacts to the finished product.

“Wait, that’s not even me!”

“It’s a standing ovation. They’re having a tremendous time. A tremendous time.”

“They’re having a tremendous time, but it’s not me that’s providing the time!”
