Here are two odd sketches from the same episode of "Fridays," May 15, 1981. The first features Michael Richards annoying a motorcycle cop, played by John Roarke. There's no real point to it, and the ending has me baffled. But after this week's SNL premiere, I'll take this type of comedy any day.

This sketch is a bit more direct, but conceptual in its own way. It's the kind of humor "Fridays" began to explore as the show moved away from its early attempts at shock and tastelessness.
