Sketch comedy might be a little harder now that you can’t get all the funny people in a room together, but these three Saturday Night Live veterans make it work… sort of.
Jimmy Fallon invited Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig for a Zoom-era twist on the classic sketch format: the overwrought soap opera. Fallon, one of the most infamous breakers in SNL history, can’t quite keep it together as Ferrell cycles through some incredibly budget long-lost-brother costume changes. Even Wiig has to turn her head to hide a smirk or two, but kills even the silliest line readings (“Vanessa! In quarantine! BEANS!”) as well as the final twist (gasp!!!).
If they can manage this, surely they can bring back SNL over Google Hangouts or something.
