It's funny to watch Steve Martin bridge the generation gap. Spouse & I know him from "King Tut", his banjo, and "Wild & Crazy Guy". Our 13-year-old knows him from "Cheaper By The Dozen" and a few other kid-friendly movies. She thought he was "just" a funny actor and she didn't even realize he knew how to do stand-up comedy... and of course his opening monologue about Belushi & Ackroyd was totally lost on her.
She never knew that Eddie Murphy was on SNL. I actually had her look it up on the Internet before she realized I wasn't joking.
I get the same incredulous response when I tell her that Jennifer Lopez & Jim Carrey used to be on "In Living Color".
Sigh. We're going to have to locate DVDs of the first five seasons of SNL and whatever's been released of "In Living Color". Maybe then our kid will understand our point of view!
