Steve Buscemi hosted Saturday Night Live and managed to help SNL spoof the Penn State sex scandal.
When it comes to sexual abuse of children it’s a difficult task to find anyone able to find humor in the topic. However, Saturday Night Live, a show that usually tackles controversial issues with comedy, was able to dig up some big laughs about the recent scandal.
While on his second stint hosting the show, Boardwalk Empire star Steve Buscemi, contributed to the ruckus in the skit dubbed “Coach Bert.” Buscemi played a coach who finds himself in the midst of an investigation after being accused of being a sexual predator—simply based on his creepy appearance. Unlike the actual Penn State case, the school officials in Coach Bert’s case, as well as the police, have no evidence, no accusations and no suspicion that wrongdoing has occurred whatsoever. Everything is based on Coach Bert’s looks.
