The following is a list of recurring Saturday Night Live sketches, organized by the season and date in which the sketch first appeared.
For an alphabetical list, see Recurring Saturday Night Live characters and sketches (listed alphabetically).
The Barry Gibb Talk Show is a recurring sketch on Saturday Night Live about a talk show starring Barry Gibb, lead singer for the Bee Gees, and his brother, Robin Gibb. It features Jimmy Fallon as Barry Gibb and Justin Timberlake as Robin Gibb. The sketch was created by writers Ken Scarborough and Steve Higgins.
The sketch is characterized by Barry Gibb's falsetto voice, used throughout most of the sketch and his extremely short temper and tendency to verbally berate his guests, usually political figures. Meanwhile, Robin provides lackluster answers to Barry's questions (usually "No. No, I don't.") as well as humorous backup for their call and response falsetto singing, particularly in the opening and closing credits. Both he and his brother appeared on the March 16, 2010 episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where they all performed together.
