Tina Fey Amy Poehler Skits Saturday Night Live
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to Saturday Night Live this week, to promote their new movie, Sisters. SNL’s that feature former cast members are usually a cut above the rest. And although not as gut-bustingly funny as I was expecting–I enjoyed last week’s ep with Chris Hemsworth more, to be honest–it was still pretty solid. There were cameos from Sisters cast member, Maya Rudolph. Plus, comedy it girl, Amy Schumer, guest starred in an hilarious parody of Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood “girl squad” video.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band guest starred. Click to watch his performances.
Fittingly, Tina and Amy delivered the last Weekend Update jokes of the season!
GOP Debate Cold Open
Donald Trump (Darrell Hammond), Sen. Ted Cruz (Taran Killam), Dr. Ben Carson (Jay Pharoah), Sen. Marco Rubio (Pete Davidson), Gov. Jeb Bush (Beck Bennett), Carly Fiorina (Cecily Strong), Sen. Rand Paul (Kyle Mooney) and Gov. Chris Christie (Bobby Moynihan) debate in Las Vegas. Wasn’t Taran Killam hand picked to play The Donald? Interesting that Darrell Hammond has been pulled in to play him.
Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Christmas Mash-Up Monologue
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler showcase their different personalities by performing a Christmas song featuring sections they each wrote. Hmm…I thought the opening monologue fell flat.
A Hillary Christmas
Hillary Clinton (Kate McKinnon) gets a visit from 2008’s Hillary Clinton (Amy Poehler) and Sarah Palin (Tina Fey). THIS HAD TO HAPPEN. The coming together of these three talented comic actresses was epic.
Meet Your Second Wife
Hosts Helen Walsh (Amy Poehler) and Tina Fey introduce three contestants (Bobby Moynihan, Taran Killam, Kenan Thompson) to their future second wives. The “wives” keep getting younger and younger until…I won’t spoil it, just watch.
If you hate walking and love fire, the hoverboard is for you. Or maybe not.
Movie Set With Tina Fey & Amy Poehler
A former acting coach on The Jeffersons (Kenan Thompson) gives two actresses (Tina Fey, Amy Poehler) terrible notes on a scene. This probably looked much better on paper, than it did in its execution. Tina and Amy attempting broad “spit take” type comic reactions was awkward, and not in a good way.
Chad and Victoria Douglas (Taran Killam, Vanessa Bayer) share Christmas highlights from their variety show. Maya Rudolph returns and she’s EVERYTHING.
Tina & Amy’s Dope Squad
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler introduce a reporter (Aidy Bryant) to their squad, which includes nannies, a gynecologist and Amy Schumer. Parodies of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” and her contrived “squad goals” is cool in my book. (Still can’t get over the irony of a Taylor attempting to turn, what’s basically a diss track aimed at a fellow female pop star, into some sort of female solidarity anthem.) Amy Schumer’s cameo is adorable.
Betty (Amy Poehler) and Jodi (Maya Rudolph) welcome Betty’s cousin Karen (Tina Fey) to the show and lament all of the bad news in the world. Tina Fey’s Philadelphia accent is not as on point as you’d think. Perhaps she was exaggerating for effect? Amy–most believable Bronx babe.
