"Hurricanes are not white!" Waller-Bridge protests. "Unless it's called Chet," Thompson reminded her.
The only other solid rock sequences on the show came from Taylor Swift, who first played "Lover" accompanied only by her on the piano, and then "False God", who is almost 80, "Avalon" – Roxy Music feels. this. (This is a compliment.)
The weekend update segment was very good, with Michael Che and Colin Jost getting into some solid aspects. Jost had a strangely dark turn in the recent news about cats taking care of their owners, but not showing affection ("that's why I call my cat" dad ""), and Che gives one of the biggest laughs of the night. when, after listing a string of President Trump's most recent actions, he took a deep breath and asked, "Are we sure it's good to make fun of this guy?" He then wept over Lenny's character from Of Mice and Men.
Kate McKinnon returned as Elizabeth Warren. The Massachusetts senator is known to have a plan, but SNL writers don't seem to have one yet to parody it. McKinnon went all in grimacing, and while a strange gag (changing his name to "Benghazi Emails") laughed at me, you talk about being on BDSM ("Bank Destroyin & # 39; and Savin & # 39; Medicare!") I eat pure fear.
Bowen Yang then stood out as Chen Biao, a Chinese trade representative. Yang was extremely energetic, full of nationalistic braggadocio. "Do you want to mess with Big Red?" He teased. “We measure time in dynasties, you measure in the seasons of Grey's Anatomy!” It was one of the biggest laughs of the night.
Another loud laugh occurred during a fake documentary sketch called “Royal Romance,” which suggested that the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was not the first time anyone associated with the British crown had been involved with a person of color. We then moved to Waller-Bridge as Perkinwell's Dutchwoman, discussing her love affair in the 1970s with a blaxploitation star named Rudy Ray Moore named Thunderstick (Kenan Thompson, who else?).
Most of the sketch is just Thompson thinking about what it would be like if Dolemite were around the English nobility, but I almost fell off the couch when the "Royal Romance" (McKinnon) narrator said that Thunderstick, in fact, left a legacy: It was he who assembled Mix-A-Lot, renaming it Sir Mix-A-Lot.
