A frustrated juggler took center stage in the form of Jason Sudeikis on the latest installment of Seth Meyers‘ “Second Chance Theatre” on “Late Night.” The bit sees the former “Saturday Night Live” head writer pulling sketches from the rejected pile and bringing them to life on his new show.
For the story of a man angry because no one wants to sign up for his juggling lessons, Meyers invited back Sudeikis — who probably had a role in originating the sketch. He’s joined by fellow “SNL” alums Mike O’Brien and Fred Armisen.
The latter two play patrons in a coffee shop where Sudeikis’ juggling lessons flyer hangs on a bulletin board, ignored.
The bulk of the sketch features Sudeikis lashing out at the customers of the coffee shop for ignoring his flyer and missing out on the joy and wonders of juggling. There’s a fun reveal about halfway through about the flyer, some fun flubbed lines along the way, and the sketch even features a happy ending.
