So, I have been a hardcore SNL viewer since the late 1980s, and Horatio Sanz never seemed like anything but a mediocre supporting player. Then after his appearances on CBB I've concluded that he is a comic genius, and arguably one of the best guests on the show.
How is this possible? How can I have such polarized responses to the same performer?
My only conclusion is the format and context have a significant impact on how much of the performer's talent shines. Does this mean we need to see comedians in different contexts, and that different types of comedians thrive in different formats?
