Maya Rudolph returned to the Saturday Night Live stage last night, this time as host, in an episode that offered some laughs, some goofiness, and more than a couple surprise guest stars, including former SNL star Amy Poehler. Check out some clips from the episode ahead!
Among the highlights of the episode were “Bronx Beat” and “Cosby Obama,” the first of which had Rudolph at the side of Amy Poehler, while the latter was an amusing mash-up of political humor with a Cosby Show twist. Meanwhile, in addition to Poehler, the episode’s guest stars included swimsuit model Kate Upton, actor/musician Justin Timberlake, who’s always good for a few laughs, and more randomly, Bill O’Reilly, who managed to keep a straight face through the “What Up With That” sketch last night.
On the goofier side, Rudloph and Kristen Wiig seemed to be having the most fun in the “Super Showcase” sketch. You’ll find all of the above sketches below, as well as the performances by musical guest Sleigh Bells.
