My knowledge of newer SNL episodes is pretty limited, but I really like Kristen Wiig. Her compulsive liar character, Penelope is excellent.
She’s also hilarious on the Lawrence Welk Show clip. (Note: this one starts out a little slow but keep watching, it’s good.)
Some others that I remember being pretty funny are:
The art dealers, Nuni and Nuni.
Peyton Manning for the United Way.
This is another classic Saturday Night Live clip. It features:
- Will Ferrell as Alex Trebek
- Darrell Hammond as Sean Connery
- Norm MacDonald as Burt Reynolds
- Jimmy Fallon as French Stewart (the guy from “Third Rock from the Sun”)
I love that one of the Jeopardy categories is “Movies that start with the word ‘Jaws.'” Classic.
