Ben Stiller Does a Yom Kippur-themed Saturday Night Live Monologue

I'm a few days late, but last motzei Shabbos, Ben Stiller did a Yom Kippur-themed Saturday Night Live opening monologue. I'd say it's about average quality for what SNL is putting out these days, but it certainly could have been worse.  ...Meh.

But there was a pretty good Borsht-Belt joke at the beginning:
"My father's Jewish, my mother's Irish Catholic, which means according to the Torah, I'm not actually Jewish. But according to all mirrors, I am."
However, I was surprised to hear that because my understanding is that his mother converted reform about 5 years before he was born.  Who knows, maybe it's just a joke.
