    My dad was amazing too. He let us watch SNL, listen to all the greats(i.e Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Cheech&Chong, etc) as long as we didn't use the language or rat him out in front of other adults. He helped us understand true comedy and that comedy heals. Miss him so much. He raised 4kids on his own. Good man.

    When I first watched this, when it was live, I couldn't enjoy it because I was so scared that Beck MIGHT ACTUALLY LEAVE!!! It was a joke, but a very cruel one.

    Loved this monologue. Not funny but heart felt. Used to stay up way to late to watch this will all of of my siblings. Youngest of 5 kids. Now we are all grown up with our own kids and whenever we get together we still love to talk about the latest skits.

    He looks great! This reminds me of going to my dads on the weekends with my sister and eating Harris pizza watching SNL and staying up way too late. So sorry to hear of the passing of his father. It pulled on my heartstrings and I am lucky enough to still have my sister and father so I shared this with them. Love SNL it’s been there my whole life! Laughter truly is the best medicine ♥️ Happy Holidays everyone.

    SNL always sends its unfunny actors to interupt the guest star's monologue. they do it all the time. SNL writers must be some stupid boring geeks disconnected from reality & comedy.
