New Saturday Night Live Cast Members

The 43rd season of Saturday Night Live is in full swing. We’ve already had three episodes with hosts Ryan Gosling, Gal Gadot and Kumail Nanjiani ushering in some laughs (be sure to check out our reviews of each new episode over here), and there’s plenty more to come throughout the rest of the year.

Throughout this season, we’ll be keeping an eye on the three new featured players making their debut on the show: Chris Redd, Heidi Gardner and Luke Null. We were introduced to them just before the new season began at the end of September, but now a series of videos from behind the scenes of the late night sketch series allows us to get to know the new Saturday Night Live cast members a little bit better.

Kumail Nanjiani Hosted Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live finished up their first batch of new episodes kicking off the 43rd season by bringing in Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani to host for the first time, fresh off the summer success of his indie romantic comedy The Big Sick. Since Nanjiani is also a celebrated and established stand-up comedian, this episode felt like it was going to be a hit. So how did Nanjiani fare for his first time in Studio 8H?

Find out as we run through the best and worst sketches of the Kumail Nanjiani hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

Gal Gadot Hosted Saturday Night Live

Gal Gadot dominated the summer box office in Wonder Woman, so that made her a prime candidate to tackle hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time. Taking on the challenge of hosting a live sketch comedy series like SNL is no easy task, even for the most seasoned comedian, so how did the predominantly dramatic actress handle the spotlight in Studio 8H? Gal Gadot did a solid job of hosting, but unfortunately, the writers didn’t give her much to do besides play the straight woman to the rest of the cast.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Gal Gadot hosted Saturday Night Live.

Gal Gadot Saturday Night Live Promos

This weekend Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot will be broadcasting live from New York on Saturday night to make her hosting debut on none other than Saturday Night Live.

Check out all the Gal Gadot Saturday Night Live promos below. Read More »

saturday night live papyrus

Typography doesn’t sound like it has any latent comedic potential but throw in a wearied Ryan Gosling in a noir-inspired Saturday Night Live digital sketch, and suddenly, you’ve got comedy gold.

The hilarious SNL “Papyrus” skit was such a brilliant takedown of the Avatar font that we’ve spotlighted it twice on our site. But the conspiracy surrounding this oddity of a font choice is not yet done — we’ve now got the enigmatic creator of the Papyrus font finally chiming in about its public skewering, and how he feels about Ryan Gosling becoming his No. 1 enemy.

Saturday Night Live - Ryan Gosling

Last night, Saturday Night Live kicked off their 43rd season with host Ryan Gosling returning for his second time as host. Gosling’s first time hosting SNL resulted in some fantastic sketches, and while there were a couple sketches that were truly great, the season premiere overall felt rather lackluster. The cast certainly put their best foot forward, but this episode felt like a shaky beginning for the late night sketch series.

The good news is Kate McKinnon continues to prove why she won the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, Ryan Gosling is adorable when he can’t stop giggling (which happened a lot this time), and Emma Stone popped in for a hot minute. Join us below as we run through the best and worst sketches from the Ryan Gosling-hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »
