2003-2004 Repertory Company
promos which aired from Thursday through Saturday.
While host Colin Firth introduces himself as the "stuffy" alternative to Hugh Grant in Bridget Jones's Diary and Love Actually, cast members (Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and Seth Meyers doing Hugh Grant) venture onstage to display their "classical" training. Saying that Colin is the first real actor they've had on the show, Amy trades lines from Pride and Prejudice with him, while Maya melts at his delivery of a line from Romeo and Juliet. Rachel's only motivation was summed up as: "I've just always had a fantasy of wearing some corset things and going to town on some English dude." (transcript)

In this spoof of a Spanish-language talk show, host Fericito (Fred Armisen) chats with English actor Colin Firth and gives him some pointers and moves to improve his comedic delivery. Horatio Sanz plays Mañuel the stereotypical and compulsory laughing bandleader/sidekick. (transcript)
Tim Calhoun (Will Forte), an employee of the Bureau of Allcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, is called to testify before a Senate committee looking into the agency's involvement in the Everglades drug scandal of 2002. During the testimony, Calhoun's lawyer visibly feeds words into his mouth. (transcript)
A hotel guest asks the bellhop to procure him some company, as he's alone, but the bellhop interprets the solicitation for his own services.
