Eli Manning's Comedy Debut Is Upon Us

05.02.12 7 years ago 4 Comments

As we’ve previously discussed by candlelight, two-time Super Bowl MVP and Champion Eli Manning is hosting Saturday Night Live this week with musical guest and beacon of humility Rihanna. As is routine, NBC released a series of promos this week featuring Eli, who is following in the footsteps of his big brother Peyton once again with this hosting gig.

After all, anything that two brothers do will always be compared. Isn’t that right, Ed? Big movie star, that guy. “The pride of the Burns family,” our parents say via Skype on holidays. Because “acting is a real job, not like sitting around in your underwear, talking about 19-year old models.” Right? WELL I’M SORRY, MOM AND DAD! I’M SORRY I DIDN’T WRITE THE BROTHERS MCMULLEN!

Anywho, check out Eli’s SNL promos after the jump.

Kidding aside, I think Eli has an understated charisma – as evidenced by his comment that he’s the third most popular QB in New York – but I don’t think the SNL writing team works well with anything understated. So I predict we’ll have a sketch about living in his brother’s shadow, something with someone asking him to Tebow, Rihanna will appear in a new “Shy Ronnie” Digital Short and there will probably be an appearance by Victor Cruz so he can remind us that he knows two steps of a salsa dance.

Oh, and the Target lady. Because we deserve to be punished. Also, hello Rihanna…

Oh, and here’s a recent picture from Rihanna’s Instagram account:
