Saturday Night Live Jurassic Park Audition

This year marks the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, and this past weekend, Saturday Night Live celebrated by uncovering a collection of never-before-seen auditions from a slew of talents back in 1992. Of course, these auditions feature talented cast members like Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, Leslie Jones, Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, Kenan Thompson and host Bill Hader merely putting on their (mostly) best impressions of famous faces from 1992.

This collection of Saturday Night Live Jurassic Park auditions features a surprising number of names with hilarious impressions bringing them to life. They include Alan Alda, Jodie Foster, Hugh Grant, Wesley Snipes, Al Pacino, Whoopi Goldberg and even Sinbad. But there are plenty more names you wouldn’t be expecting in a blockbuster movie like this, which is part of what makes this so damn funny. Read More »

Bill Hader Hosted Saturday Night Live

Last night Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader returned to his old stomping grounds to host the late night sketch series for the second time. Not only does he have a new show on HBO to promote (and apparently it’s pretty damn good), but his return to Studio 8H made it feel like he never left. Not only did Hader reprise a couple of his fan favorite characters, but there were a few outstanding cameos along with them, not to mention the fact that this was the best episode of the season.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Bill Hader hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

Sterling K. Brown Hosted Saturday Night Live

There couldn’t be a better time for Sterling K. Brown to host Saturday Night Live. Aside from the fact that this NBC series This Is Us is at the height of its popularity, he also has a small role in the blockbuster giant Black Panther. Both were ripe for lampooning in the latest episode of Saturday Night Live where the award-winning actor made his hosting debut. So how did Brown fare for this first time on the live sketch comedy scene?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Saturday Night Live Star Wars Spin-Off Sketch

Last weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Charles Barkley was fairly lackluster. Though there were some decent laughs to be had here and there, the episode was mostly a disappointment. However, it could have been vastly improved if a certain pre-recorded sketch was included in the episode.

When Saturday Night Live does dress rehearsal, the episode has more sketches than will fit during the timeslot for the show. After dress rehearsal, it’s determined which sketches need to be cut, whether it’s because they didn’t land well at dress rehearsal or because they just don’t fit in the schedule properly. In this case, we lost a Star Wars sketch with Charles Barkley as a character who doesn’t understand any alien languages, rendering him useless. Read More »

Charles Barkley Hosted Saturday Night Live

Whenever Saturday Night Live brings in an athlete to host the late night sketch comedy series, the quality of the show can be hit or miss. Some athletes just don’t have the charisma or the skill to do live comedy (or acting in general), but then there are those like Michael Jordan and Peyton Manning who really bring the laughs. Charles Barkley falls somewhere in the middle, and that’s exactly what we got this weekend.

Kicking off a new trio of episodes this month, Charles Barkley returned to Studio 8H for his fourth time at host. We got the highs and lows of having Barkley in the spotlight, because at times he can be downright hilarious, but other times he stunts the comedy show by stumbling over lines, which he’s reading in a clunky fashion. But even when the latter happened, there were still plenty of hilarious moments.

Bill Hader Hosting Saturday Night Live

Saturday Night Live is in the middle of a break while NBC’s programming is dominated by Olympics coverage day in and day out. But they’ll be making a return in the first week of March with three shows in a row, featuring three interesting hosts, and three eclectic musical guests.

Kicking off this trio of episodes on March 3 will be former NBA player and Emmy-winning sports analyst and commentator Charles Barkley. He’s hosted several times before and is one of the show’s few recurring athlete hosts. Barkley is always game for making fun of himself, and his episodes are usually a good time. As for the other two hosts, one is a first-time, and the other is an SNL veteran. Read More »

Natalie Portman Hosted Saturday Night Live

It’s been 12 years since Natalie Portman first hosted Saturday Night Live, but she finally returned to Studio 8H this past weekend to have fun with an almost entirely new cast.

The last time Portman hosted, Andy Samberg and The Lonely Island were making waves with SNL Digital Shorts, and Natalie Portman was part of one of the best in the form of a rap music video. Upon her return this weekednd, the writers were bold enough to delivering an all-new rap, and surprisingly enough, it delivered pretty damn well. Plus, Portman reprised her role as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and even played Eleven from Stranger Things.
