SNL Holiday Favorite: Schweddy Balls

Share This:

The holiday season means holiday cookies, gifts that are one size too big (or too small) and visits from certain family members you might not be in a rush to see. For the fortunate, it may also mean a sack of Schweddy Balls.

The classic “Schweddy Balls” Saturday Night Live sketch – our Classic Video – was written by cast member Ana Gasteyer who co-stars as co-host (with Molly Shannon’s character) of a fictitious NPR series Delicious Dish. Using Alec Baldwin and his deadpan delivery as entrepreneur Pete Schweddy was a… ahem… stroke of genius. It originally aired on December 12, 1998.

The double entendres may be obvious but Gasteyer and Shannon play it, er, straight. “Over at Seasons Eatings, we have balls for every taste,” says Baldwin’s character. “Mmm… my mouth’s watering just thinking about those balls,” says Gasteyer.

“Do whatever you want to them, ladies. My balls are here for your pleasure.” Enjoy…
