Our Favorite Saturday Night Live Clips Of All Time

For the past 41 years, Saturday Night Live has brought the laughs.

No issue — political, celebrity, or hypothetical — is off limits for the eclectic cast, which has consistently (and impressively) churned out new household names season after season. Regardless what sort of bleak situation is unfolding across the world, we can always count on SNL to pull us out of the darkness and into the comedic light. And for that, we are so grateful.

The best part about SNL is that it appeals to every viewer in a different way. Everyone has their own favorite skits and comedians guaranteed to make them giggle. And, thanks to the wonders of the internet, we can rewatch as many times as we want.

There’s no shame in watching Ryan Gosling break character in the “Close Encounters” skit from April of this year. It’s hilarious.

We rounded up our all-time favorite acts from the show that always leave us laughing in out loud. Literally.

Back Home Ballers

The women of SNL go home for Thanksgiving and bask in the glory of their parents’ devotion. For anyone who’s returned home after long stints away, this skit is painfully relatable.

Jake Tapper

This political spoofs will never get old.

Sean Spicer Press Conference

This is a must-watch, not only because it is hilarious, but because Melissa McCarthy sounds JUST like the infamous White House Press Secretary.

Hillary Actually

Give us a Love Actually meets HRC mash-up any day.

La La Land Interrogation

The story of one man who committed the most heinous crime of all time: not liking La La Land.

The Calvin Ads

Justin Bieber will never, ever live this skit down. Kate McKinnon did an amazing job spoofing the buff and tatted singer. To full appreciate how spot-on this is, you have to check out the original for comparison.


Ariana Grande totally slays her role as an intern at Tidal who flawlessly impersonates any singer.

The Target Lady

Kristen Wiig is a comedic genius, and this is all the proof one needs to support that theory. It’s nearly impossible for me to enter a Target now and NOT hear this obnoxious nasally voice in the back of my head.


SNL is really delivering on the comedic political commentary this season, but “Melanianade” is hands-down the show’s best work yet.

Stefon is a true gem. Bill Hader’s off-beat party extraordinaire highlights the best hot spot suggestions. The cast can barely get through his scenes without breaking character — it’s that funny.

Only Maya Rudolph can pull off a Beyoncé (also known as Queen Bey, Bey, Oh Bey Bey, Bey Bey Bey) impersonation and not disturb The Beyhive. Oh, and we saw that clever Illuminati call-out Jay.

The Californians

Apologies to any Californians who are offended by this skit, because few things are funnier than Bill Hader explaining which Lowe’s he’s going to while wearing that blond wig.

A true classic through and through. The skit is really hard to come across on the internet, and this is the best we could find. Here’s a link to the Blue Oyster Cult song to make up for it. P.S. More cowbell.

I Can’t

I can’t with this skit. I literally can’t.

A Thanksgiving Miracle

A defining moment in the rise of Adele’s “Hello” that reveals the power of star’s voice — a voice strong enough to silence even the most obnoxious Thanksgiving guests.

Close Encounter

Ryan Gosling lost it halfway through the skit, but we couldn’t even make it that far before falling out of our seats laughing. Kate McKinnon is a gem.

Star Wars Auditions

Let me know if you don’t instantly fall in love with Jon Hamm auditioning for the part of “Ham Solo.”

The Day Beyonce Turned Black

Politics meets pop culture.
