WATCH: Sarah Silverman Does Joan Rivers, Gets Ebola and Talks to Herself on ‘Saturday Night Live’
Thing is, Sarah knows exactly how lucky SNL was to have her and she proved it each and every time a quip left that amazingly smart-ass mouth of hers.
…and here are tonight’s top stories:
Naturally, the show kicked off with a terrible cold open to do with President Obama and the drama surrounding ISIS and the secret service. For the sake of all of us, I hope our next president is easier to poke fun of.
Sarah started out of the gate STRONG. Thankfully, She didn’t sing. She didn’t dance. She simply patted herself on the back and forced an audience member to sing her praises. It’s hysterical and definitely worth the watch.
REMEMBERING JOAN RIVERS:
This is the sketch that has everyone talking, and for good reason. Taking place in Heaven, Sarah took on Joan’s personality entirely and roasted the hell out of the likes of Benjamin Franklin, Freddie Mercury, Steve Jobs and Lucille Ball.
THE FAULT IN OUR EBOLA:
Featured player Kyle Mooney really has found his place in a post-Andy Samberg SNL. He kills it in a digital short about how ridiculous love at first sight can be, even allowing Sarah to literally kick her man to the curb.
Props to Michael Che for sticking the landing of his second night behind the desk of SNL’s fake news organization. Where last week was rough, this week he had jokes that landed and even a few broken wall moments that’ll make you smile.
VITAMIX IS…WELL, IT’S EXPENSIVE:
Even though I’m very guilty of wanting a Vitamix on my kitchen counter, this sketch hits the nail on the head as to why that’s a terrible idea. And if you don’t get it…you’re just jealous.
