Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg
has been left unimpressed by a parody of him on 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.
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."
