Mr. Saturday Night 

Slow Horses Review, is it worth your time

The show is about the ups and downs in the life of a stand-up comedian. His name is Buddy Young Jr. Crystal. The character discovers that he was wrongly included in the Memoriam segment on the Emmy Awards show. When he is called on the ‘Today’ to rectify the error, he takes it as a good opportunity to regain the spotlight that he always had the command on. To fulfill this motive, he takes the help of David Paymer, who is Buddy’s loyal brother, Stan and he begins to sing a song to grab the crowd’s attention. It was actually a comedic song.

Role of Buddy

The role of Buddy is selfish and he is separated from his family. Crystal found great pleasure in revisiting the character thirty years back. With time and practice, he got shaped into this character as he gave a lot of his time to this. Now, he could actually understand Buddy’s role. He is confused and misunderstood and time is not by so fast. Sometimes, he is bitter and selfish too but he’s not a bad guy for sure.

Crystal’s career

He also shares his experience of thirty years ago when he began shooting the film. He remembers himself acting to be of seventy-three when he was forty-three and again playing the same role when he was seventy-three. In an interview, he stated that his first performance as young was on an HBO special in 1984.  Then he came to “Saturday Night Live”. He believes that one should always try to dwell oneself in that role. He also mentioned that he used to perform in musicals and even sang as an Oscar host.

Crystal’s feeling of satisfaction 

This is giving him better feelings. It’s really a nice feeling because what he did earlier, he had to act like an old person but now he would do it the best because now he’s actually in that phase so it will look natural. He says that he’s ever ready to grow, improve and challenge himself. Crystal said that the show got delayed due to the pandemic situation but he’s glad about the audience response in Berkshire.
