Mom… Cecily Strong

Regie… Jay Pharoah

[Starts with American Voices intro]

Male voice: Tonight on American Voices. Corso, Litterman, Leno, Falon. The late night talk show landscape has been home to some of America’s great talents. All of them fun. And just about all of them, men. But was it always this way? [A picture of Ruby Nichols appear] Actually, one of Television’s very first talk shows was hosted by an African-American woman, comedian Ruby Nichols.

[Cut to Janine Katz- Ruby’s Granddaughter]

Janine Katz: My grandmother started out in the 1940 on the legendary Chitland circuit doing party records like, Skunkment for Supper, and Who Sat On These Biscuits? But her big break came when she married my grandfather, TV producer Jackie Kats.

[Cut to a picture of Jackie Katz and Ruby Nichols hugging] [Cut to Janine Katz]

Unfortunately this show had a couple of obstacles to overcome. Their band leader was blinded in an auto-plant accident. And they shot it in Atlanta which still wasn’t fully desegregated.

[Cut to Too Late with Ruby Nichols video bumper] [cheers and applause] [Cut to Ruby Nichols]

Ruby Nichols: Thank you. Thank you. You all see this? They had a big Hollywood movie opening last night. Vertigo, did anyone see it? You did? Well, I didn’t, because they wouldn’t let me in the Theater.  Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. They wouldn’t even let me in the front entrance of this theater and this is my show! Ha-ha-ha-ha. Makes me deeply sad.

Anyway, I want y’all to meet Absin on the piano. How you doing, Absin?

[Cut to Absin]

Absin: I- I- I’m doing real good. I’ve been resting comfortably since the accident. I don’t know what all the fuss was about. I don’t miss seeing nothing.

[playing piano] [Cut to Janine Katz]

Janine Katz: To say it read people the wrong way is an understatement. But, ABC bravely kept it going and until the Hailey Mill’s episode. My grandmother was always frustrated. She was the only one on TV who had to have a day job.

[Cut to Ruby Nichol’s talk show set. Ruby Nichol, Absin and Miley are sitting.]

Ruby Nichols: Thank you for being here.

Miley: Thank you. I didn’t know what to expect.

Ruby Nichols: That’s how I feel all the time.  [laughing] Let’s talk about this movie. A lot of people are talking about parent trap. You seen it Absin?

[Cut to Absin and Miley]

Absin: Ya, I saw it twice.

[Cut to Absin, Miley and Ruby Nichols]

Ruby Nichols: [laughing] Well, did you bring your twin here tonight?

Miley: I don’t have a twin. They shot me as a two different characters, you silly.

[Cut to Ruby Nichols]

Ruby Nichols: [laughing] Alright, you got one more time to call me silly.

[Cut to Miley]

Miley: I can just show you a bit if you like.

Ruby Nichols: Yes. I’d love it.

[Cut to a clip from the movie. Abygal played by Miley and Mom are sitting.]

Mom: Oh, Abby, please. At least eat your pie.

Abygal: I don’t want it mama, now that daddy’s not here. Not now, and not ever.

[Regie walks in]

Regie: Oh, now, come on Miss Abygal. Now I reckon I make all these pies for them now to get ate up. You hear? It will make me smile. Come on, now. Give old Regie a smile.

[Regie makes Abygal smile by pulling her lips at the two end with his fingers.] [Cut to Ruby Nichol’s talk show set.]

Miley: Oh! Perhaps not the best clip to show.

Ruby Nichols: Ha-ha-ha. Question. You couldn’t make your own pie?

Absin: [talking to the crew members] Look here, do me a favor. Make sure my car’s running.

Miley: Ummm…

Ruby Nichols: I’m just so sick of Hollywood making us look like this. You know, I’m gonna tell you right now what I think of every white person here.

[Video cuts to a screen message “Please stand by”.] [Cut to American Voices outro]

Doctor… Kenan Thompson

[Starts with a couple walking in a rain under umbrella.]

Karan: Mental illness doesn’t run in our family. So, I never thought it could happen to someone I love. But then my husband started getting confused. [Cut to Karan telling the story] He’d say things that just didn’t make any sense. Things like…

[Cut to Rick Santorum giving speech. Karan is standing beside Rick Santorum]

Rick Santorum: And come next November, I Rick Santorum will be president of the United States.

[Cut to Karan Santorum acting nervous]

Karan: And he believed this. [Cut to Karan telling the story] That’s when I knew, he had dementia.

[Cut to Mike and Janet Huckabee enjoying their time.]

Janet Huckabee: My husband Mike Huckabee is to be my rock. And then one night last month, he got up in the middle of the night, start packing suit case. He wasn’t making any sense. He was muttering, “Kim’s in jail and I gotta get her out of jail. [Cut to Janet telling the story] And I’m gonna be in jail. And that’s gonna make me a president.” He didn’t even know what year it was or how the world worked.

[Cut to Jim and Roxane Gilmore enjoying their time.]

Roxane Gilmore: My husband Jim Gilmore is the love of my life. [Cut to Roxane telling the story] But lately he’s been having these episodes.

[Jim walks in]

Jim Gilmore: Honey, the Gallup poll has me up for 1.2 % in Iowa. White House, here wecome.

Roxane Gilmore: Yay! I cannot wait to be first lady.

[Jim leaves and Roxane looks at the camera]

Do you see? He is sick and he needs help.

[Cut to a doctor]

Doctor: Well, now there is help. Introducing  Abilify, for people who think they can be president. Once taken, Abilify destroys the damaged part of the brain that says, “I’ma be president.”

[Cut to Karan Santorum and Rick Santorum. Rick takes the pill after giving speech, then realizes what was happening.]

Leading to an almost immediate return to reality.

[Cut to Mike Huckabee taking pill during the live news, then leaving immediately]

It’s the only dementia medication prescribed for 11 specific people.

[Cut to Karan Santorum and Rick Santorum]

Rick Santorum: Before Abilify, I would go on national TV and say, “Here is how I would eradicate ISIS. [laughing] Me! It’s like, what?”

[Cut to Roxane Gilmore and Jim]

Jim Gilmore: Today in the news, they said Jim Gilmore dropped out of the race. And I thought, “Who’s Jim Gilmore?” Then I realized it was me. I was running for president. [laughing] [Cut to Janet and Mike Huckabee]

Mike Huckabee: One time during a debate, I cut Donald Trump off and I said, “No, you listen!” What was I thinking? That’s our future president!

Doctor: So ask your doctor about Abilify today, Bobby Jindal. Because not everyone, can be president.

Mike, Jim and Rick: And now we know. [laughing]

[Cut to everybody]

Merilyn: How rude!

Carolyn: In your own home?

[Cut to Jerilyn]

Jerilyn: And I said, “Hey Carl! Guess who’s just heard enough of this? The answer is me, bud!” And the next thing I know, the Persian carpet I’m standing on yikes out off under me, rolls me up inside like beans in a burrito and tosses me right through our brand new pillow windows.

[Cut to Nat]

Nat: Now, when did you smoke cigars?

[Cut to Terilyn]

Terilyn: Well, when I worked on Wallstreet, I had a box a day habit. That’s when I wore big blazers and just cursed at everybody. “Buy that stock, bitch! Sale that buy bitch!” and etcetera.

[Cut to Nat]

Nat: Well, what you gonna do?

[Cut to Terilyn]

Terilyn: Well, I’m just gonna dance till August and then throw off half of my shoes.

[Cut to Jerilyn]

Jerilyn: Poor foot!

[Cut to Nat]

Nat: Well, y’all. I hate to pile on, but I had traumatic experience of my own that I’m still dealing with.

[Cut to everybody]

Carolyn: Well what happened, Nat?

Merilyn: Tell us.

[Cut to Nat]

Nat: I got pranked by a sperm bank.

[Cut to Carolyn]

Carolyn: The one downtown?

[Cut to Nat]

Nat: Um, that’s the one. I parked in their private space, I guess. Anyway, I answered the doorbell this weekend and apparently they had rigged a bucket.

[Cut to Carolyn and Merilyn]

Merilyn: [sighs] You don’t mean!

Carolyn: Oh, no!

[Cut to Nat]

Nat: I do mean! No, I’m no expert, but I must have been covered with a seed of over 100 men.

Merilyn: Noooo!

Nat: I can’t even talk about it. And ya, you know, there was a note that said, “This was the first of three pranks”. And I said, “Boy, if this is the first!” Ouf! Anyway!

[Cut to Jerilyn]

Jerilyn: Ladies! Weren’t we supposed to be doing something?
