Fellow five-time hosts Paul Rudd, Tina Fey, Steve Martin, Elliot Gould and Candice Bergen, in addition to Conan O’Brien, inducted John Mulaney into Saturday Night Live‘s Five-Timers Club through the Feb. 25. episode.
“Not to be a total bitch, but my Five-Timers show in December was supposed to be a lot better. That is before the whole cast decided to call in sick,” Rudd stated, referring to his year-end episode that was interrupted by the surge in omicron instances and ended up solely having just a few castmembers in attendance.
“They all had COVID,” Bergen instructed Rudd, to which Martin joked, “So what? I have COVID right now. I got it from the Queen.”
When Mulaney enters, Martin greets him with “Ah, Megan Mullally, as I live in breathe.” Bergen congratulates him on his induction, earlier than asking who he’s.
“Well, Candice, you wouldn’t know me, but if you have a niece or a son who’s bad at sports, they might,” Mulaney responds.
Rudd continued by explaining that although the night time is Mulaney’s induction, it’s additionally partially an evening for Rudd to have a good time. “My get together was canceled as a result of laziness, he stated. When Mulaney directs him off the set, Fey enters and is handed a particular cocktail.
“It’s the five-timer fizz. It’s made of Justin Timberlake tequila, Dan Aykroyd’s vodka, and Tracy Morgan’s club soda, which is aquarium water,” Fey defined.
“I have to say, I had no idea people got treated this well,” Mulaney instructed Fey. “When I worked here, I was just a writer,” to which she responded, “You were one of the best. You wrote that character with Bill Hader and 800 other things that aged terribly.”
Bergen went on to inform Mulaney that the Five-Timers Club has gotten so massive, somebody has to retire from it earlier than he may be inducted.
“Too bad nobody here is at retirement age,” Martin stated. “You are 76,” Mulaney instructed him. “Yeah, but I have the child of a 38-year-old, and we can’t get rid of Tina. She was the first woman to ever wear glasses on TV,” Martin responded. “That’s true, Entertainment Weekly called it ‘disgusting,’” Fey stated. “And it can’t be Candice. She was back here in the 70s, can you imagine the sexual harassment that happened back then?”
Bergen continued, “Oh, yeah, I made those guys do really weird stuff,” to which Gould responded, “I was fine with it.” The group went on to say that the Five-Timers Club simply isn’t particular anymore.
“Did somebody say ‘not special?’” O’Brien stated in his shock look, joking he was solely there to enroll in Peacock and saying when he was a author on SNL, he was part of the primary Five-Times Club particular.
“John and I were never supposed to be on TV, we’re hideous. Right? Say it, John,” O’Brien instructed Mulaney, who stated, “I guess.”
“We are, and we’re here, and we’re taking what’s ours!”
