The standard format for any blog post recapping the musical guests from Saturday Night Live is to say how bad the mixing was and that the sketches were awful, and certainly Seth Rogen’s rough time playing any character that isn’t largely just like Seth Rogen and one of my least favorite tracks from The Lonely Island’s Incredibad serving as the bed for the digital short didn’t help the comedy situation. But the sound on the two and a half Phoenix appearances weren’t too bad. Add Bill Hader‘s Gizmo impression and a half-funny Muppet-themed sketch and that’s almost something, right? Phoenix’s full-length performances (and, as a bonus, the Muppet bus clip) are after the cut.
