Episodes of Saturday Night Live are always packed with sketches from start to finish, and the show isn't always able to air all of the sketches that were pitched. Some are prepped, rehearsed, and even filmed before they get cut for time, while some others simply never get off the ground. Former SNL castmate Vanessa Bayer recently revealed one sketch from her time on the show that never made it on the air, saying this:
When most of us think of Vanessa Bayer on Saturday Night Live, we probably think of her as '90s Rachel Green or Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy or even the meteorologist Dawn Lazarus who found it difficult to report on the weather. All of those characters are funny, but they're not exactly tough or intimidating. I'd say seeing her playing a bully version of herself, dropping by the hosts' dressing rooms and threatening them into not crossing her would definitely be worth some laughs, if only because of how different it would be. I can't even really imagine a scary and aggressive Vanessa Bayer. The kind of sketch she described to THR would have been fun to watch.
Sadly, we probably won't ever get to see a sketch starring a surprisingly aggressive Vanessa Bayer. The actress officially retired from SNL at the end of the latest season, along with Bobby Moynihan. She could very well return as a guest or even host, but this kind of sketch might not work with somebody who isn't on board on a weekly basis. That said, Bayer went on to share the hosts she would have liked to work with in this kind of sketch. Here's what she had to say:
Oh, what might have been! The good news is that Vanessa Bayer will be keeping busy now that she's left Saturday Night Live. Even if we won't get to catch her threatening the Rock on SNL, we'll be able to see her in Netflix's upcoming movie Ibiza. The project will star Vanessa Bayer, Gillian Jacobs, and Phoebe Robinson as a group of friends on a work trip to Spain that takes a turn when they start hunting for a popular DJ. Hopefully she'll be as funny in Ibiza and all her future projects as she was on SNL.
