How Leslie Jones’ ‘SNL’ skit could have been brilliant
Here we recall some of our favorite sketches from the season — both live sketches and videos. The truth is, after such a massive cast turnover, Season 39 was always going to be a rebuilding year, no matter what safeguards SNL tried to take. That said, anyone who has been watching regularly knows there have still been plenty of hilarious moments from Season
Diehard Saturday Night Live fans know about the Five Timers Club — a group of They weren’t allowed back on NBC until a appearance on The Tonight He was sitting in a room and a sketch was handed to him by Gary Kroeger, who.
On the January 18 episode, the rapper dusted off his acting skills — honed on “Degrassi: The Next Generation” — and seamlessly brought “SNL” back from its hiatus with its newest cast member, Sasheer Zamata. Zamata was recently hired after the NBC sketch comedy show was criticized for its noticeable lack of African-American women, and made her debut on January In the end, “SNL” went with a third option: It used Zamata liberally throughout the show as a supporting player, but her debut was virtually overshadowed by the night’s host, Drake.
In addition to performing, the year-old artist participated in nearly every sketch and nailed them, from his opening monologue that recalled his bar mitzvah In fact, the one person who won the episode more than Drake was Kate McKinnon and her impersonation of Justin Bieber in the cold open:. The Huffington Post’s Mike Ryan was also pleasantly surprised, saying in a review that Drake reminded him of Bruno Mars from last season: “An energetic host that’s been given so-so material that he’s able to elevate — to a point.
And the fact that “SNL” fully integrated Zamata into the episode versus trying to break her out as a more prominent star also meant there was more time for Drake, Entertainment Weekly noted, “and Drake was really, really great,” particularly in the “Before They Were Stars” sketch.

Jim Carrey is one of those comedians who always seems to be a walking contradiction. On the one hand, his over-the-top delivery, penchant for bizarre comedy and experience on a live sketch comedy show should mean that he’d be the perfect guest host for Saturday Night Live. But his enthusiasm and manic energy frequently seemed to sabotage his best bits during his previous two times hosting.
However, while starring in the pre- Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live ‘s 40th season , everything seemed to fall into place minus a few striking missteps , and Carrey managed to set the bar for the rest of the season with one of the funniest episodes in recent memory. The night started off shaky, with a cold open that seemed to sit there like a dead fish, and things were only made worse by Carrey’s bizarre and jokeless musical monologue. But then we got introduced to Carrey’s Matthew McConaughey impression, and all was right with the world.
So, let’s take a look at some of Carrey’s crowning achievements, and the sketches that almost sunk the evening. Carrey’s hilarious three-part recurring Lincoln Town Car parody commercials were definitely the most consistently funny and memorable. And, as seems to be the norm for SNL , the best sketch of the night was pre-recorded. In the fake commercials, Carrey rocks an incredible McConaughey impression to satirize the Oscar-winner’s recent string of bizarre and philosophical Lincoln commercials.
The first in the three-part joke played after the insane and terrible monologue, then again before two other commercial breaks. Each time, McConaughey got weird and more hilarious.
