Thanks To Billy Crystal, We’ve Reached Peak “Jacob The Bar-Mitzvah Boy”

That SNL has been mostly cranking out “meh”-worthy turds for the last few seasons is pretty inarguable, but Vanessa Bayer’s “Jacob The Bar-Mitzvah Boy” character has always been a bright spot in an otherwise mediocre cast of reoccurring characters. But after last night’s re-appearance of Jacob, flanked by none other than proud poppa Billy Crystal, I say it’s time to retire the character. End on a high note. The bit, with its all-too-real characterization of a mouthy kid who’s too shy to actually be a performer, can only go downhill from here.

Awkward pauses can only be funny for so long…give poor Jacob the dignified closure he deserves.

…But don’t quote me on on that
