Bill Hader Skits Saturday Night Live
Everything is better with Bill Hader in it. Particularly when the ex-Saturday Night Live cast member returns to the show as host. In a season where the writing has been less than stellar, Bill finally managed to bring the lulz. And I’m not kidding, I probably woke the neighbors I was laughing so hard at times.
On October 25, Jim Carrey hosts SNL! Iggy Azalea is the musical guest
The comedian came back to promote his new movie, Skeleton Twins. It was no shock that his co-star, Kristen Wiig, dropped by for a few cameos. I can tolerate Kristen as long as she isn’t performing any one of her lame regular SNL characters. She is so much better OFF the show than she was on.
If you missed the cold opening, you didn’t miss a lot. The skit mocked North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-Un (Bobby Moynihan) and his “mystery” illness. Or maybe it’s a coup. Whatever.
Bill Hader’s opening monologue had Kristin Wiig encouraging Bill to sing. And then when he finally does, he’s terrible. And then Harvey Fierstein shows up. Like Sarah Silverman’s monologue last weekend, I thought it wasted his talents.
Bill Hader as an old, senile reporter dude on a local TV station provided the first yucks of the night. Pete Davidson is shaping up to be a great addition to the cast!
I literally COULD NOT BREATHE during this fake trailer for every crappy movie based on a post-apocalyptic YA novel you’ve ever seen. Great job skewering the trope! Bill is HILARIOUS as a version of the character, Effie Trinket, from the Hunger Games
Kate McKinnon’s impression of Jane Lynch as the host of Hollywood Game Night is pretty great. She presides over a group of the dumbest celebrities ever. Bill plays a deliciously wacked out Al Pacino.
A parody of those cloying “Save the Children” commercials. Yes, I’ve often wondered how the “few pennies a day” I donated could feed an entire village. The smackdown of the condescending white dude by the sassy villagers, is pretty damn awesome.
YASSSS!!! Stefon returns to give us pointers on how to spend an autumn weekend in New York City. Bill was a little rusty, but still so funny. He could barely keep himself from breaking character.
“ONE OF EACH!” Stefon exclaims, after eying Colin and Michael. Overall, Colin and Michael are finding their rhythm at the desk. They’ve made great strides since their awkward start on the premiere.
The Cat in the Hat…he gets around.
