SNL‘s famed Ambiguously Gay Duo — voiced by Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert since their days writing for The Dana Carvey Show — host Robert Smigel’s hits in SNL: The Best of Saturday TV Funhouse. The lesson: Top satirists target Anna Nicole Smith and Osama bin Laden with equal fervor. And, whenever possible, they strip NFL star Tom Brady down to his briefs.

EXTRAS
Additional ‘toons include one Smigel chose not to air (it involves George W. Bush liberating a beehive). A star-studded commentary offers more shock and awe: Smigel asks Mr. T to read Ibsen… and he does.
