Edward from Washington Heights aka pretentious "Hudson Heights"

Alan Zwibel was at SNL when it was GREAT.

Today SNL is always disappointing. The current cast is very good - especially Fred Armisen - but the writing is AWFUL.

Generally the celebrity host is someone I have never heard of.

The musicical guests are also, like the current cast, very talented, but suffer from poor writing of music.
