Amy Schumer hosts Mother’s Day themed ‘SNL’ with cameo by Melissa McCarthy

Comedian Amy Schumer hosted SNL this week with musical guest Kacey Musgraves. Check out some of the highlights from the Mother’s Day themed episode.

Cold Open

This week SNL opted to forego the typical political-themed cold open, usually featuring Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump. Instead, some of the cast members welcomed their mothers to the stage to complain about the politics of the show. Check out the heartfelt tribute to many of the cast members’ mothers.

Amy Schumer Opening Monologue

Like other stand-up comedians on SNL, Amy Schumer opted to do some of her stand up material during her opening monologue. In the monologue she talks about her recent marriage, among other things.

Mother Knows Best

In the first sketch of the night, Amy Schumer played a game show host. The game featured mothers and their children, but Kate McKinnon and Mikey Day played a mother and son that seemed just a little too close.

Melissa McCarthy Makes Cameo

Melissa McCarthy stopped by SNL this week to play Michael Che’s stepmother during Weekend Update. Complete with a sweatshirt with Che’s face on it, Melissa McCarthy stole the sketch. Check out the hilarious cameo below!

Kacey Musgraves Performs

Musician Kacey Musgraves performed two songs during this week’s episode. Check out her performances of “High Horse” and “Slow Burn” below.

Coming Up on ‘SNL’
