Rejoice! Saturday Night Live first ballot Hall of Famers Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are hosting this weekend’s edition of Saturday Night Live and will (hopefully) melt your brain with comedy excellence in the process. In a bid to sell you on 90 minutes with Poehler and Fey, the celebrated alums have knocked out the customary procession of quick promo spots touting what’s to come.
Buddied up with current (and likely forever) cast member Kenan Thompson, we’re provided with a steady blast of quick comedy bits nudging you to catch the program. In addition to being a winning showcase for tasteful seasonal sweaters, we get gags that involve hug-related candy leakage, discount LASIK, and snowman improvisation skills. The main takeaway from this clip collection may be that Kenan should seek medical help immediately.
This week’s Fey/Poehler hosted episode features Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band serving as the musical guest. It’s the last SNL offering of 2015 and there’s no reason why it can’t build on last week’s solid outing. What can we expect this go-around? Will Poehler’s Hilary Clinton bump into Kate McKinnon’s Hilary Clinton? Could a Tina Fey led commercial parody make its way into the mix? Will these former Weekend Update hosts return to the desk? Speculate your hearts out in the comments.
On a completely unrelated note that we’re sure has absolutely nothing to do with their hosting appearance, the Fey/Poehler comedy Sisters arrives in theaters this Friday.
