It rarely happens, but this week’s Saturday Night Live episode is actually featuring a musical guest that many people are more stoked about than the host. Kenan Thompson knows it, and deep down, host Chris Rock knows it, too. Check out these Prince-oriented SNL promos.
NBC’s Saturday Night Live has been good at spoofing pop culture for quite some time, and this weekend proved to be no exception. Dumb and Dumber To star Jim Carrey popped up as the host this week, and he opted to take on a sketch that poked fun at none other than Matthew McConaughey.
If you've been watching Saturday Night Live's current season, chances are, you've already seen the long-running sketch comedy's latest casting addition. Leslie Jones, who's been featured on "Weekend Update," and a recent sketch, has been added to Saturday Night Live's Season 40 cast as a featured player.
Over the years, Saturday Night Live has written plenty of sketches that haven’t made it to the live airing. Veteran SNL writer Robert Smigel told Live From New York biographers James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales that there was one political sketch that President Barack Obama actually got cut.
Saturday Night Live brought former cast member Bill Hader back to host the late night sketch series this past weekend. The episode was filled with a few new gems, as well as the return of Stefan and much, much more. In fact, the episode was so jam-packed that a sketch featuring Hader called “Coal Miners” was cut by NBC for time.
Bill Hader made his triumphant return to Saturday Night Live last night, and while he kicked ass per usual, the real winner was actually Dan Cortese. Known to some as Seinfeld’s Mimbo and to others as a former MTV VJ, the ultimate loveable bro was referenced as a part of every single club Stefon mentioned last night
Bill Murray is still famous for the years he spent on Saturday Night Live and he’s obviously kept tabs on the show that made him a household name in the years since he first appeared. Recently, Murray was asked about who he feels has been the most talented Not Ready For Primetime Player over the years, and his answer will probably surprise you.
Jan Hooks, an actress and comedian known for Saturday Night Live, 3rd Rock From The Sun, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and 30 Rock, has died at the age of 57. Hooks began her career as a member of Los Angeles’ famous Groundlings troupe and was offered a series of small television roles in the early 1980s.
SNL’s Season 40 has featured a couple of big hosts so far, but neither Chris Pratt nor Sarah Silverman is nearly as exciting as Bill Hader’s big return to the show that made him a household name. Here’s a first look at this Saturday’s big SNL episode. Understandably, Hader’s been paired up with his former co-worker and veteran SNL cast member Kenan Thompson in the promos.
Saturday Night Live has a long and glorious history of original, generation-defining comedy bits. Unfortunately, it has a far less glorious and far less famous history of stolen material accusations. The finger-pointing added another chapter today too when some people stepped forward to claim last night’s Tina Turner Riverboat Sketch was lifted from a bit by The Groundlings.
We know Bill Hader as one of the funniest and most successful cast members in the history of Saturday Night Live. Once upon a time, however, he was just the new guy on the long-running sketch comedy show. No one including Bill Hader was quite sure whether or not he’d even make it on the show, except apparently, Dan Aykroyd
Ever wish that your toys would come to life? Last night's Saturday Night Live entertained such a scenario. Wait until you see what happens when this kid gets his wish for his toys to be alive...
NBC’s Saturday Night Live is set to kick off Season 40 this evening. To commence the anniversary year with momentum, NBC has big plans to air a classic episode from the SNL cannon at 10 p.m. EST tonight. It’s a trend that will continue throughout the year.
Saturday Night Live has always been a mix of different comedic styles. One sketch might be a pretty straight ahead commentary on recent political or pop culture events. It could be followed up by a middle finger toward some minor personality quirk a certain percentage of people do.
After more than a decade of hilarious and steady work on Saturday Night Live, Kenan Thompson may be ready for a new challenge. The seasoned comedian hasn’t announced his plans publicly, but rumors are swirling that he’s going to depart the SNL cast after this upcoming season.
