I'd like to know also. I hate Brewer, glad he got canned. He was extremely unfunny.

I hated Jim Breuer with a passion.

Anyway, I did a quick search, and virtually everything that I found said that he was apparently fired from SNL after arguing with an NBC executive. Darrell Hammond said that they were supposed to do a movie together, it fell apart, an executive said something to Breuer, Breuer responded with some things that he shouldn't have, and he got canned for it.

I thought Jim Breur was great. I thought the show was best when he was on.

Sorry if I am not too familiar with third rate comedians. Well except for Will Ferrell.

Seeing as how I am a southerner from South Carolina, I am not too good with faux German accents

Still, I stand by my original reply.

Not only was Goat Boy unfunny, but it ruined what could have otherwise been a great bit -- "Hey, remember the 80's?" That underlying show was very funny, but Goat Boy just wrecked it.

i always hated goat boy as well, never saw the humor in it. as a comedian i never like jim breuer either. i recently caught his new act on comedy central and it was horrible. glad he left, canned or of his own will.

Supposedly Norm got fired because he made OJ Simpson jokes all the time and OJ is friends with an NBC exec.
