‘SNL’: Steve Martin makes fart jokes with Selena Gomez

The Arconia came to 30 Rock on Saturday when Steve Martin crashed Selena Gomez’s “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut.

In a skit in which Selena Gomez played the host of a television show about history’s notable inventions, five-time “SNL” host and co-star of Gomez’s “Only Murders in the Building” Martin appeared as “gag inventor” Archie Gizmo on. He speaks to the camera about beginning his career as a whoopie pillow prototype.

“I knew it would be funny if your boss sat down and a noise came out of his butt. But I just couldn’t figure out what sound. I couldn’t crack it – but then I hit myself She.”

Aidy Bryant appeared in a ’60s flashback, grinning, dancing and farting. “Miss Dina Beans,” Martin said. “I saw her from afar. Her energy was magnetic. Her eyes were endless. And every time she sits down: Gas.”

“That night he realized: The funniest sound that could come from a butt was a fart,” Gomez said. Martin went on to share how he fell in love with Dina, as well as her bad luck.

When Bryant opened a can of peanuts and four live snakes jumped out, Martin came up with the idea for fake snake prank cans. When she was struck by lightning while shaking hands, he invented a hand buzzer and so on.

“The biggest joke she ever blew up was marrying a guy like me. Love you Dina Beans,” Martin said, reaching out to shake with his wife — with a buzzer tucked into his palm.

In her monologue, Gomez joked about her age difference with her Only Murders in the Building co-stars.

“I was so honored to work with Steve Martin and Martin Short, especially after googling them to find out who they were. I remember telling my girlfriend that I was cast on a show called Only Murders and she said, “Sounds sexy. Any hot co-stars?’ And I thought, ‘It depends. Do you like the banjo?’”

Season 1 of Only Murders in the Building debuted on Hulu in August 2021, and Season 2 will premiere in June. The series follows Mabel Mora (Gomez), Charles-Haden Savage (Martin) and Oliver Putnam (Short), three New York City neighbors who join forces to solve the murder of Mabel’s childhood friend and Arconia roommate Tim Kono (Justin Cihi). while documenting their progress in a podcast.

The court battle between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard was the focus of the Cold Open.

Kyle Mooney played Depp, who has claimed in real life that Amber Heard once left a “faecal birth” on her bed out of anger.

When Heidi Gardner, who played Heard’s attorney, presented a video of Depp’s property manager (Kenan Thompson) finding the “Dookie,” she pointed out that the video would not be taken as proof that the feces came from a human — as Heard claims it came from the couple’s dogs.

“That’s true, but I’ll allow it because it sounds funny. And this test is for fun!” Cecily Strong squeaked, playing judge.

Strong parodied the way the trial has become such a pop culture moment: “I think I’ve seen enough. This attempt gave me a lot to think about. On the one hand, I believe Mr. Depp’s story. But then again, your constant little grin lets me know that. This isn’t the first woman you’ve pissed off by pooping in your bed.”

“I guess I’m known for being a total nightmare,” Mooney replied, grinning.

In another sketch, the cast faked the recent leak of photos and videos from the Broadway play Take Me Out, in which Jesse Williams appears fully nude.

“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the first preview of ‘A Storm Within’ by acclaimed Irish playwright Rory McFadden. And as I’m sure you know, there’s a penis on the show,” Thompson said. “Yes we go there and it’s better not enough online. If you post it, you’ll lose the penis.”

Gomez’s episode was shared with musical guest Post Malone, who is also making his SNL debut. For his first appearance, he brought in Roddy Ricch as a guest on their song “Cooped Up”. His second appearance was with Fleet Foxes for their collaboration A Love/Hate Letter to Alcohol, which is included on the rapper’s forthcoming album Twelve Carat Toothache, due out June 3 via Mercury Records and Republic Records.

Post Malone also appeared in a sketch where he and Punkie Johnson played the “Intuitions” of Chris Redd and Gomez, respectively, playing a couple of paranoiacs about being scammed.

The next episode of “Saturday Night Live,” which will air May 21, will be the season 47 finale. Natasha Lyonne will make her debut as a presenter alongside musical guest Japanese Breakfast. Past season 47 hosts have included Lizzo, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jerrod Carmichael, Zoe Kravitz, Oscar Isaac, John Mulaney, Willem Dafoe and Will Forte.
