I have so many favorite SNL sketches and characters, primarily from the 90’s and on. Here’s some of the best:
Behind The Music: Blue Oyster Cult. Will Ferrel playing a cowbell with the band as they play “Dont Fear the Reaper”. Christopher Walken plays Bruce Dickinson. Bad 70’s outfits and hair, Will’s gut hanging out of his shirt as goes nuts on the cowbell, hilarity ensues.
Laser Cats with Spielberg guest appearing. So cheesy yet will make you laugh out loud.
Cosby show spoof with the Obamas where they recreate the famous Cosby episode when the family sings and dances for Cliff’s parent’s anniversary.
Weekend Update with a pregnant Amy Poehler rapping while Sarah Palin sits at the news counter with Seth Meyers. My favorite sketch to date.
My favorite of Mike Meyers are the Coffee Talk sketches and Wayne’s World.
Delicious Dish, the NPR radio show with hosts Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, featuring Betty White.
The Church Lady with Dana Carvey.
Jimmy Fallon with Michael Buble’s song duets. Jimmy impersonates various artists to perfection.
Debbie Downer with Rachel Dratch. One of the best of these was the Walt Disney World sketch with Lindsay Lohan because they all broke character and laughed at some point.
Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker with Chris Farley and David Spade, Phil Hartman, and Julia Sweeney.
Oprah’s Favorite Things spoof with Maya Rudolph where the audience goes crazy complete with people’s heads blowing off.
Dick in a Box with Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg. So funny, clever, inappropriate, fab.
Pandora Radio skit with Bruno Mars where the company experiences music issues and Bruno has to sing other artist’s songs. Brilliant because his impression of Green Day’s Billy is dead on. He also does a mean Michael Jackson.
Kristen Wiig as Suze Orman is always a pretty dead-on impersonation.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton. They poke fun at each other, even mentioning Hillary’s cankles.
Tina Fey as Sarah Palin with Amy Poehler as Katie Couric. The famous interview between Sarah and Katie is mocked and it is so sad that it is funny.
Mom Jeans with Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, and Maya Rudolph. This sketch was great because most people have seen the “mom jeans” on your typical suburban moms and cringe at how bad they are.
