This week I’ve become a bit obsessed with the most recent episode of SNL, in which alum Maya Rudolph returns to her former stomping ground, along with a few surprise guests. Justin Timberlake and Amy Poehler both popped up for stellar cameos in skits poking fun at Beyonce’s new baby, as well reviving the old favourite, Bronx Beats. My personal favourite was the Super Showcase sketch, in which pretty much everyone involved was corpsing at Shonda and Vonda (Rudolph and Kristen Wiig) as they took a contestant through the various surprises that they could’ve won. I think that the best sketches are the ones that are so funny that even the performers can’t help but laugh, and you become a part of a group of friends who are, let’s face it, pissing around on stage and doing silly voices. Haven’t we all done something similar? Anyway, it’s not available on Youtube and my HTML skills are not quite up to scratch yet so you’ll have to click on the link below, enjoy.
