She's very good. The new Kristen Wiig, I've predicted.
Anyway, the Australian version of Bogart & Hepburn bit was amusing, because of Hader and McKinnon. I really laughed when McKinnon was in the hospital dying, and was asked "do you have any last words?", and her reply was "kangaroos, I guess"... in super-thick Aussie accent. I enjoyed this skit.
On the other hand, I do NOT enjoy Louie doing his standup routine, neither as a scene on his show nor as the opening last night. It's just strained and not funny. He doesn't need to repeat the punchline a few different ways when he sees it worked the first time. He needs to move on. I never have understood audiences who laugh uncontrollably at something that's obviously not super-funny and perhaps worth a "titter" at best, if you enjoy Beavis & Butthead humor. Saying raunchy things doesn't make it funny.
I actually enjoyed "the girl you shouldn't start a conversation with at a party" the best. She's really got that doubletalk down, and Seth was appropriately perplexed as was I. Loved it when she reached into her purse for her phone to quickly reply to a text, and then later to Instagram a picture of Seth. This is a genuinely funny character.
Now if only they'd give Nasim something to do!!!
