A professionally funny host isn't required for a funny Saturday Night Live episode, but it certain doesn't hurt. Comedian Louis C.K. proved that last night when he hosted SNL and delivered a number of funny moments, including a great opening monologue that was really more of a stand-up routine than anything else. Check out the highlights ahead, including the director's cut of the Lincoln sketch.
Among the best moments of the episode were the opining monologue, which had Louis C.K. doing some stand up about a recent airport exiernece, and "Hotel Fees," which was an amusing bit about the lengthy process of checking out of a hotel and approving all of the fees. The opening sketch, which focuses on Bloomberg addressing the city about Hurricane Sandy involved a lot of funny sign language, was also pretty good. And finally, as goofy as it was, the "Last Call" sketch, which closed out the episode, had me laughing out loud.
And then, of course, there was Lincoln, a segment that turned Louis C.K.'s FX comedy series Louie into the same show if it centered on Abraham Lincoln, complete with revised opening sequence and a Lincoln stand-up routine. We also get to see Lincoln interact with his wife. NBC released the directors cut of that sketch, which you can check out below. We also have the musical performances by fun. and the Weekend Update sketches.
