'Saturday Night Live' Recap - Tina Fey & Amy Poehler with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
For the first sketch of the night, Kate McKinnon played her Hillary Clinton trying to sleep on Christmas Eve. Where she is visited by Amy’s 2008 Hillary, and they’re visited by Tina’s Sarah Palin.
Next up was a game show called ‘Meet Your Second Wife’, where married men can meet the woman who can be their second wife. The contestants were all super young girls, that kept getting younger and younger. This was one of my favourites.
Then there was a commercial for new hoverboards that now explode whenever they feel like.
They did a sketch where Keenan was directing Amy & Tina and had them overact everything like they were on the Jeffersons. It was the only real stinker of the night.
Amy and Tina of course made an appearance on Weekend Update, to say the last two jokes of 2015.
Next was a show remembering their favourite Christmas clips of all time, and they had Maya Rudolph performing a song in a classic Maya character. Amy was a cocaine addicted singer. And Tina sang with Keenan’s Bill Cosby who spiked her drink. It was just ok.
Then there was a digital short where Amy and Tina spoofed Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood to highlight their Dope Squad (which includes Gayle King and Amy Schumer).
Thankfully Maya was around so her and Amy could do a Bronx Beat. We. Have. Missed. ITTTT.
Bruce Springsteen played them out tonight, and Paul McCartney jumped on stage to play the bells for Santa Claus is Comin To Town.
Overall an A+ Christmas episode.
Tune in for new episodes in January, with host Adam Driver.
