• ‘Saturday Night Live’ Parodies Iggy Azalea! Watch Video Of ‘SNL’ Spoof Of Azealia Banks Feud (VIDEO)

    Saturday Night Live took aim at Iggy Azalea in a hilarious parody. The SNL skit also featured parodies of Azalea’s rival, Azealia Banks, and the Australian’s mentor, T.I. The SNL parody featured a mock talk show hosted by “Iggy Azalea” (played by Kate McKinnon). McKinnon nailed Azalea’s thick Australian accent before launching into a rap verse. Of course, there wouldn’t be Iggy Azalea without T.I. so McKinnon’s character then introduced

    Welcome to Me trailer: Kristen Wiig continues enviable career after Saturday Night Live (Video)

    Since her exit from Saturday Night Live in May of 2012, Kristen Wiig has masterfully piloted her post sketch comedy career. Flying light years beyond the laughs she generated with the Target Lady, Dooneese and Gilly (among other now-classic SNL characters), Wiig has proven herself a deeply versatile actress. Still comfortable playing comedy for straight laughs like she did in Anchorman 2 and like she will in this summer’s bank

    SNL 40: Steve Martin catches Martin Short ‘doing Coke’ backstage (PHOTO)

    In what could have been the most apt maneuver of Sunday’s Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special, Martin Short decided to do a little Coke backstage, maybe hoping to settle his jangled nerves before performing. Unfortunately for him – but fortunately for us – old pal Steve Martin was there to capture the moment on camera. And of course, no celebrity faux pas would be complete without the insta-humiliation of

    Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary In Memoriam honors crew, not just cast (Video)

    Saturday Night Live cast members, past and current, will always give tremendous props to the crew members who work behind the scenes. Most any performer will say the same thing about those who aren’t in the spotlight; it’s why at the end of every Broadway show’s curtain call the cast will point to the band and to the tech booth. The Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special was so exception.

    ‘Saturday Night Live’ Seattle Seahawks Parody Better Than Key And Peele’s? Watch Video As ‘SNL’ Mocks Richard Sherman And Marshawn Lynch (VIDEO)

    After Saturday Night Live tackled the Deflategate controversy surrounding the New England Patriots last week, it was a given that they would mock the Pats’ Super Bowl opponent the day before the big game. So last night’s episode featured a spoof of perhaps the two most-talked-about players of the Seattle Seahawks, the chatty Richard Sherman and the media-defiant Marshawn Lynch. It came just days after Key & Peele produced a similar spoof for its Super

    Saturday Night Live’s Ferguson sketch was cut for time and that’s a shame. Watch it now.

    Though NBC claims a Ferguson sketch was “cut for time” from this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live, we can’t help but think it was cut because the network thought it might be too controversial to run on traditional television. Regardless of the reason, it’s a shame since the sketch is actually pretty great. Starring Cecily Strong and Kenan Thompson as forced-to-be-cheery St. Louis morning show hosts, the segment does a

    W. Kamau Bell, Jello Biafra inject thought into Fun Fun Fun Fest, Fred Armisen brings Ian Rubbish

    AUSTIN — If Friday’s comedians at Fun Fun Fun Fest contended with the low lows of celebrity and popular culture, Saturday’s theme might as well have been “Damn the man, save the Empire.” Politics, politics, and more politics. W. Kamau Bell’s set, for example, offered an appealing blend of his personal experiences and political critique that had the audience at once laughing and thinking carefully about how race works in

    Chris Rock’s SNL monologue tackles Boston marathon, Freedom Tower, gun control (Video)

    Opening with the Boston Marathon bombing, Chris Rock delivered a Saturday Night Live monologue unlike the light-hearted fare offered by most SNL hosts. Some online are claiming the old standby arguments against such a bit: “It’s too soon” and “sometimes there are things you just don’t joke about.” I disagree with both of these sentiments. Rock could and should joke about whatever he wants, but it would be preferable if
