Best Tracy Morgan Skits Saturday Night Live – VIDEO
Tracy Morgan returned to Saturday Night Live last night. It was his first major TV appearance since the devastating traffic accident that killed his best friend and mentor, Jimmy McNair, and left Tracy with multiple broken bones and a head injury.
It was pretty sweet to see him back on his feet again, recovered, and ready to make people laugh again.
The cold open satirized the recent Democratic presidential debate, and featured an all-star cast: Hillary Clinton (Kate McKinnon), Lincoln Chafee (Kyle Mooney) and Martin O’Malley (Taran Killam), Anderson Cooper (Jon Rudnitsky). Larry David came by to play the perfect Bernie Sanders. And the presence of Alec Baldwin as Jim Webb was the first hint that a 30 Rock reunion was coming!
Tracy Morgan’s monologue included a 30 Rock parody that brought back key members of the cast for a big reunion–Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer. They “recreated” a 2012 episode that supposedly foretold Tracy’s accident. The NBC promos at the bottom of the screen for Smash and Animal Practice are a nice touch.
It’s “Family Feud: Extended Family Edition”! Kenan Thompson is always hilarious as Steve Harvey. Tracy Morgan plays the husband and ex-husband of the two families facing off against each other. Hilarity ensues.
It’s the return of animal lover, Brian Fellows and his Safari Planet. I’m Brian Fellows! What’s up with that beaver? He seems snotty!
Yo! Where Jackie Chan at Right Now?
The only thing missing was an actual cameo from Jackie Chan.
Astronaut Jones: the Martian
With the release of the new, Matt Damon movie, The Martian, it’s a perfect time to recycle Tracy’s “Astronaut Jones” skit, old footage and all. Special appearance by Demi Lovato as a sexy space martian.
