I love Gus, but yeah, it's a pretty obvious joke. Basically Susan Boyle in a nutshell. It's not impossible that 2 people thought of a similar skit on the subject. :)

If you ever leave Youtube for the demotion of working on a TV show no one sees I’ll be so mad that I’ll never watch your TV clips on YouTube.

People in these comments are shitting on SNL's format and joke quality, but...that's not even what this video is about. The point is Gus is recognizing that the joke is similar, but it's a very general and basic joke. People have been making these jokes since Susan Boyle. Not liking SNL is one thing, but this isn't joke theft.

They’ve taken some of my ideas too.. but.. maybe they didn’t.. some things are way too coincidental and spooky in this weird world lol. I don’t doubt the writers run out of ideas and steal. Oh well what can we do.

neon-pink shirt, a baseball bat and overcast midwestern scenery make for a pretty intimidating combo im impressed im confused im a little aroused good job edit: just wanted to confess that three days ago I deadass did not know Gus existed and I have found his channel because someone in the comments to that very SNL clip said that there is a dude named Gus Johnson who did the same thing a month before with nothing more than a crappy mic and a halloween wig, also crappy and he did not disappoint in conclusion - I like it here very much, Gus, you're awesome, stay golden, never grow the stache back gbye

You make me laugh a lot more than SNL does. Their writers would probably really benefit if they lifted ideas from you. Honestly, it's like they shit in their hands and throw it at the wall and whatever sticks, they use as inspiration.

You are more talented than the writers of SNL and you have a better platform. Lol imagine watching tv on a Saturday night in 2018. If SNL or CC or Hollywood or really anyone from California or New York offers you a job please don’t take it. Please don’t take it.

The style is completely different. And it is a typical idea many people can have because it is based on truth. It is like making a joke about tomato juice on a plane. This is what happening. and on a talent show there are some weird guys and at the end sings amazingly. In the SNL skit, it is not even a fucking opera. So it IS different. not even close. Seems that some fans of Gus are just idiots. But Gus handled it pretty well. Love Gus.

Man dont try and get on SNL. SNL kills every comedian who is every been on it. Maybe it's good on a portfolio and pay but I seriously havnt laughed at a SNL skit in years. They are the ultimate sellout destination for comedy writers. I miss Kyle Mooney's stuff from before they slapped a laugh track over it poisoned it with their writing.

Funny thing is, I actually am an assistant to Adam Sandler, Lorne Michaels and a couple others on the SNL writers crew and about a month ago they were looking at random YouTube channels in their conference room and I mentioned that Gus Johnson is one of my absolute favorite sketch artists on YouTube and this is all just a bunch of bullshit because I live in New Orleans, nowhere near these people and deliver durable medical equipment and I had to google the writers for SNL just to mention a couple in this comment. Anyway, I hope you get a job with em Jus Gonsoon. You’re hilarious. Thanks. Bye.

Um, they “expanded” on the joke but yours was funnier and you needed less then half the time to get across the same ideas. So like your writing was just more tightly crafted. More isn’t always better.

Tell me about it. Ever made people billions and then they couldn’t even find the $10 mil they explicitly owe you after people ran off and built stuff you designed/told them about? No telling what other stuff might be created of value if the actual person who came up with things were given credit/additional resources/etc. Some of those sketch ideas are pretty funny. Credit where credit is due. Credit can also be in the form of large amounts of money provided as a loan that’s explicitly never going to be collected on and completely discharged by the issuer.

I think the reason SNL and Gus came up with the joke is because everyone knows the rhythm now. With that said, your execution was more effective. To the point and fun and shows that you don't need a big budget to make a good joke.
