You might not know that the rapper drake began life in showbusiness as an actor in his native Canada, starring in the teen drama, Degrassi High. So, it was a no-brainer to have him both host and serve as the musical guest.
It was also the first week for new featured player, Sasheer Zameeta, who is the first African American female cast member since 2008. She did pretty well, considering she didn’t get many speaking lines, and starred in mostly lame skits. Hopefully, she’ll be showcased more prominently in future shows.
Check out a few skits from tonight, below.
Cold Open – Piers Morgan Live.
Mocked both New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie, A-Rod and Justin Bieber. Pretty funny.
After Drake explains that he’s half-Jewish, we go back to relive his Bar Mitzvah, and the awkward coming together of both sides of his family. Good stuff.
Nobody can keep their New Years Resolutions. The vices become increasingly bizarre. Cosplay was my favorite!
Before they were Stars
What if more Rap singers starred in 90’s sitcoms?
Drake as a dorky dad hit on by one of his daughter’s friends at a slumber party. Worst skit of the night, to be honest.
Poetry in Detention.
Drake has a thing for older women. Vanessa Bayer is hilarious as the kooky poetry teacher.
Good Mornin Miami!
WHAT ABOUT THE BABIES!
Disney World Show
It goes horribly wrong.
