Tremendous respect for what Elon has accomplished but, letโ€™s be real, the man doesnโ€™t have any comedy chops.

It was hilarious how giddy and excited he was. That's the joke. Man has billions, he shared some joy.

Yeah but most of the โ€œjokesโ€ that involved him were all basically winking โ€œitโ€™s funny because its Elon! Get it?!โ€

And thatโ€™s fine but itโ€™s literally the absolute minimum effort required to try and extract any humour from his performance.

โ€itโ€™s funny because heโ€™s a billionaireโ€ doesnโ€™t really translate for me ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I think he did a pretty good job considering heโ€™s not a performer. It was pretty awkward though.ย

some parts of it were brutal to watch, but i also think that's due to the SNL cast's talent declining from where it used to be.ย

I saw one of the sketches first (before I watched his monologue), I was like, omg.. he's terrible - like really awful. And then when I watched his monologue, I found out he has Aspergers (I didn't know that... and it really explains alot). So, honestly, after watching through that lens, I thought it was pretty amazing for him to put himself out there and probably inspired some others to go for things they thought they couldn't do before :-).ย  But he should definitely NOT quit his day job, lol

Cheers and I get what you mean by not quit his day job, but with the kind of money Elon has I don't think he needs to work another day in his life, but I sure hope he does so we can go to mars๐Ÿ˜‚!

Seeing Elon on SNL was confirmation: the Internet really is Revenge of the Nerds.

Like Elon has 0 EQ. But he's still "cool" and "famous" because he is the memelord. Which is only a thing you can be asynchronously. If he had to be "live" all the time, he wouldn't have nearly the fanbase he's amassed on Twitter.

and towards the comment @Chep had re: Bezos, Gates, Cook etc.ย 

Their handlers won't let that happen. Elon is papa elon because he doesn't have people managing his image. He is (to us outsiders) genuine and honest, not run through a PR lens.

It's refreshing to see a real CEO with real thoughts and actions. Even if he is wrong sometimes (masks, trapped kids submarine etc).

I look to the dave portneys, the ross pomarantz, the sahil mansuri of the world to be genuine, open with little filter.

Great point Sadnes5. As much as I would love to see them try hosting SNL I respect Elon and (others you mentioned) for seemingly being themselves online and not some typical (Through the lens of PR) CEO.

I wish they would have more people like Elon host, honestly. More thought leaders...but only if they are dynamic/charismatic and maybe can deliver a joke without reading it straight off a card.ย 

I might actually watch it.ย

I mean, he wasn't dynamic or charismatic and couldn't deliver a joke lol. Good watch though, fun to see Elon in that light, but I don't think anyone thought it was prime entertainment.

Agreed. I know it's unorthodox, but was cool to see a thought leader go on SNL. I'd love to see Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Tim Cook, or any other CEO (Ex-CEO) give it a try!

Bezos would be interesting. Apparently, it was pretty controversial within the SNL staff to have Elon host so I'd assume they'd throw a fit for Bezos.
