In the comedy “Love and Death,” a French general says his win will help people remember his name is “Sidney Applebaum.” This is where the joke about Sidney Applebaum comes from. Allen’s movies are only good because of the beautiful things that don’t make sense. Stefan doesn’t know what happens next, and Bill Hader only knows a small part of the plot.
As a comedian, he would have thought this was funny, and the audience is laughing primarily because they know the movie line and get it or because they are meant to. The audience isn’t laughing because they don’t know the back story. It’s funny because of the inside joke between Bill Hader and John Mulaney, which is why it was addressed.
Two things make the joke work:
- The irony here is that people are expecting the Jewish Dracula to have a cool-sounding name because of the Blackula joke, but his name sounds lame, obvious, and typical for a Jewish person. Also, a lot of people have the idea that Jewish people are very reasonable and conservative. This makes the joke funny, at least in the back of many people’s minds.
- Also, the crowd loves it when Bill Hader breaks out of character and laughs so hard he can’t stop. On the other hand, Hader is known on the show for being easy to get rid of.
No matter what, Hader and Mulaney are geniuses at comedy and did a great job with Stefon. All we hope is that they don’t end up ruining the surface. The crowd loves it when Bill Hader breaks character and starts laughing so hard he can’t stop, and Hader has a reputation on the show for being easy to break.
In the movie “Love and Death” by Woody Allen, one of the characters is named Sidney Applebaum, and that character says that people will remember that name when they learn about the past of France. Most of the humor should come from the contrast between a personal story people will remember and how stupid the word is.
What’s the joke about Sidney Applebaum on SNL?
Allen’s movies are only good because they have a beautiful nonsequitur. As a comic, it shouldn’t be surprising that he would have found this as funny as possible. Still, people in the crowd laugh because they know the movie line and get it or because they are supposed to laugh it out.
Among the things said in an interview:
The live reporter said that Bill Hader is sad that he has to leave “Saturday Night Live.” To get back to the topic, a Jewish Dracula named Sidney Applebaum made him laugh so hard. Not because it was a funny joke but because that name comes from one of our favorite tricks in the movie Love and Death by Woody Allen.
Even though it made people laugh, the fact that the guy talked about how his name will be remembered in history was very personal.
Sidney Applebaum, who helped start Rainbow Foods, died at 92.
As his father, Oscar Applebaum, used to sell groceries door-to-door in St. Paul from a horse-drawn carriage, the food business was in his blood. Applebaum put soaps and rice in bags and worked as a box boy. He also brought fruits and other goods to the food stand, like when he was young at his father’s center.
When he was an adult, he started a chain of supermarkets called Applebaum, Big Top Liquors, and Sid’s Discount Liquors Foodbakets and helped start Rainbow Foods store-style supermarkets. He was the head of this country until 1997. His family said that until last week, Applebaum kept climbing every morning at 4 a.m. and going to work at Midway Big Top Liquors.
On August 6, 2016, at 92, Applebaum Sidney died in peace at home. He avoided many parts with ease. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother, uncle, and great-great-grandfather. He was a visionary grocer, entrepreneur, and guide; many people looked up to him as a role model.
Sidney was born to Oscar and Bertha Applebaum on February 28, 1924. He married Lorraine Smith, the woman he loved, in 1945. Next month would have been their 70th wedding anniversary. Together, they raised three children, Nancy, Jay, and Ellen. It made him very happy to see his family happy and growing. He was, most of all, wholly selfless and very giving.
