Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg has been left unimpressed by a parody of him on U.S. comedy show Saturday Night Live, dismissing the sketch as "not funny".
The rapper-turned-actor, who once performed as Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, was portrayed by funnyman Andy Samberg in a segment called Barky Bark and the Donkey Bunch earlier this month (04Oct08).
During the skit, Samberg mocked Wahlberg by talking to a dog, a goat, a chicken and a donkey.
But Wahlberg failed to find the sketch humorous and insists the show's standards have fallen since its earliest episodes, when the series' line-up included comedians such as Eddie Murphy and Bill Murray.
He tells the New York Post, "Someone showed it (the parody) to me on YouTube. It wasn't like Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin, that's for sure. And Saturday Night Live hasn't been funny for a long time. They've asked me to do the show a ton of times. I used to watch it when Eddie Murphy was there and Joe Piscopo and Bill Murray. I don't even know who's on the show now."
