With Justin Timberlake hosting the latest episode of Saturday Night Live, you hoped that the writers would wake up and bring out their good material. And they did. For the most part. A good 80-85% of the episode had me laughing out loud and that’s a great percentage in a season that’s been pretty lackluster. Although the episode relied heavily on veteran appearances from comedy legends Tom Hanks, Martin Short, Dan Akroyd, Steve Martin, Candice Bergen, Alec Baldwin, and Chevy Chase, most fans were so happy to see the show have so much energy that they didn’t care if there was wasted potential. I admit, I’m one of them. I was thrilled to see Andy Samberg reunite with his Dick In A Box buddy but was left confused that they didn’t participate in a more hilarious musical number. I kind of wished Andy hadn’t used his Digital Short return on Adam Levine.
That being said, the night was full of some hilarious sketches including the return of Stefon. Here are the videos of our favorites from last night’s SNL:
Five Timers Club
This is the star studded sketch everyone was talking about last night when they weren’t talking about Stefon. With this hosting gig being his 5th, Justin was inducted into the prestigious Five Timers Club, just like many before him, including Tom Hanks. It makes me sad that half that audience probably had no idea who The Three Amigos were.
It’s A Date
Featuring the surprise return of The Festrunk Brothers and The Dick in a Box guys.
This was an hilarious all girls sketch about glamming up your birth control.
And, of course, the return of Stefon.
Last but not least, Justin brought it on down to Veganville last night.
