Last night’s new episode of Saturday Night Live featured comedian Louis C.K. helming and musical guest Fun. See highlights!
The show cold opened with a press conference held by Mayor Michael Bloomberg (played by Fred Armisen) and her colorful sign language interpreter. The pair had been prominent over the past week when updating New York City residents on conditions after Hurricane Sandy. The press conference then welcomed remarks from Governor Chris Christie (Bobby Moynihan).
The best skit of the night may’ve been Louis C.K.’s impersonation of Lincoln speaking to a former slave at a bar and trying to get a thank you. We then see the skit is actually a spoof of Louie, the actor’s hit show on FX.
Weekend Update included an appearance from Mitt Romney played by Jason Sudeikis. The actor will run his end on the show in January – he’s only stuck around this long to play the Republican Presidential candidate.
Interestingly, an Obama character (Jay Pharoah) didn’t have a skit in last night’s episode. Neither real Presidential candidate appeared this season. During the 2008 Presidential Election season, Obama, Senator John McCain, and Governor Sarah Palin had all made appearances.
One of Louis C.K.’s other great skits was this one as a guest on Fox and Friends. An impersonation of Donald Trump (Sudeikis) is included:
