44. Jimmy Tango’s FatBusters
Original Airdate: May 18th, 1996
Jim Carrey is probably the biggest comedy star launched into movies by a sketch show other than Saturday Night Live, and when he finally hosted in 1996, he was at the peak of his fame. Ten minutes before the end of the show – the infamous timeslot where the darkest sketches often wind up – Carrey unleashed the deranged Fire Marshall Bill side of his In Living Color days as Jimmy Tango, the host of a weight loss program predicated primarily on smoking crystal meth. The sketch comes horrifyingly alive when Carrey has a showdown with his future box-office competition, a blood-gushing Will Ferrell, still working out his oft-yelling persona in his first season.
