What happens when three legendary “Saturday Night Live” alums descend on Niagara Falls?

Funny tweets, of course.

They performed at the Niagara Fallsview Casino and didn’t waste time during their short visit to the area.

From Niagara This Week:

John Laasko hopes “a bit of juggling” will pay off for the city he calls home.

Laasko is putting together a video that he hopes will attract the attention of Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and inspire the former Saturday Night Live funnyman to check out the sights in these parts, if not bring his show here.

“We have to strike while the iron’s hot,” the film editor said.

Did Dan Aykroyd just diss us?

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Dan Aykroyd, you’ve got some explaining to do.

Local fans might be wondering who they’re gonna call after the ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Saturday Night Live’ star called Niagara Falls, New York “a little prettier” than its Canadian counterpart during an appearance across the river Saturday.

Aykroyd was promoting his Crystal Head Vodka at Supermarket Liquors on Niagara Falls Blvd. when he praised the American city as “one of the unpolished gems of American architecture.” As he received the key to the City from Mayor Paul Dyster, Aykroyd raved about the city’s infrastructure, original office buildings and power dams.

“In Canada, we say we have the longer Falls and maybe the prettier ones,” he said. “But I think the city of Niagara Falls, New York is a little prettier than Niagara Falls, Canada.”

It’s a comment which made Niagara Falls Tourism chairman Wayne Thomson chuckle.

“Well, he is a comedian,” he cracked.
