There's no doubt that Saturday Night Live has a tendency to go through peaks and valleys. Some years the show is fantastic, while in other years it's an absolute drag. That's simply what happens when a sketch series constantly tries out new performers and jokes for over four decades. Luckily for us, Saturday Night Live came out with its guns blazing in 2016, and delivered some absolutely phenomenal comedy routines.

With that in mind, we have taken it upon ourselves to compile a list of the year's best SNL sketches for your to review for yourself. Some of these sketches provided sharp political satire, while others relied on complete and utter absurdity, but all of them held a special place in our hearts for their ability to make us laugh. Check out our list and let us know your favorite Saturday Night Live sketch of 2016 in the comments section below!

Black Jeopardy

A Saturday Night Live sketch titled "Black Jeopardy" could've gone very south very quickly, but thanks to the undeniable charm of Tom Hanks (coupled with some razor sharp writing) the skit ended up becoming one of the best segments of the election season. The core premise? A white Donald Trump supporter named Doug (Hanks) finds himself pitted against two black women on the titular game show, and they soon realize that America's racial divides might not be as concrete as they previously thought. It's an incredibly insightful sketch, and it works because of the even-handed approach taken by the writers.
