SNL 4/11/09 - Zac Efron & the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Updated 4/13 with the Kristen Wiig promo!

Not the best week for Andy and Bill, but it was a great week for Bobby! Still, Andy got in three key skits. Take a look!

Promo: Zac Effron with Fred Armisen and Kenan Thompson

Hilarious! These must be mostly Fred's gags. Even Fred's gag at the end is funny, "Hey, can I eat your food?" And there's nothing there!!!

Promo: Zac Efron, Kristen Wiig, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

They're in Studio 8H.

This seems like Kristen's jokes. Not as good as Fred's above.

Cold Opening: Obama Homecoming

Fred Armisen ... Barack Obama
Jason Sudeikis ... Joseph Biden
Casey Wilson ... Katie, secretary (voice)

Fred's still not willing to make fun of Obama, so all the jokes here are from Jason's impressions of Biden. Fred's Obama impression remains stale and unfunny. Thanks for saving Fred on this one, Jason!


Zac has a word of thanks for the tweens.

Ick. I never liked this Gilly character. I keep wanting someone to punch her lights out.

Angie Tempura from bi*!& graces the Update desk.

This has to be one of the main reasons why SNL hired Michaela. The Celebrity Blogger is her best character. This is the second appearance.

Update: Jon Bovi

This is very funny, but it's definitely not the "what." It's the "how." Will and Jason make this hilarious despite their material.

Not a ton of Andy this week, with only 3 skits and no digital shorts. But we did get 2 digital shorts last week and a lot of Andy skits. Basically, Andy had a good week last week because Seth sat down with Bill and Andy and came up with stuff to do with them. This week it was just up to the writers, who favor the more versatile character actors (although Bill is a character actor, he's not as snarky as Fred, Kristen, and Jason).

So this week Jason Sudeikis took the cake with 7 skits, and following behind him were Fred Armisen, Bobby Moynihan, and Kristen Wiig, all with 5 skits. Yay, Bobby! Keep showing your versatility in all the characters you can do!

I don't know, as an avid Jon Bovi fan, I quite enjoy the backwards bands! I thought it was great.

The backwards band is the bomb! Thanks for posting the link to the SNL skits. Awesome post!
