Dave Chappelle is in a fowl mood in “Motel Painting,” an offbeat but hilarious cut-for-time sketch from last weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live.
Set inside (what else?) a motel painting of a quaint pond scene, the sketch finds Chappelle voicing a swan who looks good and knows it, to the dismay of two neighboring ducks (Alex Moffat and Melissa Villaseñor). They don’t think a certain cob is pulling his weight around the pond, but he begs to differ.
“Oh wait, I’m sorry, do you have a long gorgeous neck?” Chappelle sneers. “Have you inspired countless ballets?”
“There was one ballet,” the ducks protest.
“And what was it called?” Chappelle says. “It wasn’t called Duck Lake.”
