SNL Weekend Update Thursday, 9/24/09

Cold Open: Obama's Healthcare Interviews

Andy's a CW vampire! Of what show? Does it matter? =^)

Also includes some Weekend Update and Fred changes from Obama to Governor Patterson.

Nasim Pedrad's first SNL appearance, and it's on a Weekend Update Thursday! Congrats to Nasim for a quick and early appearance!

She also nailed her first impression, Kathy Griffin:

It's not saying a ton, but this is also the best Kathy Griffin impression that SNL has had yet (Ana Gasteyer in 98 and Chris Kattan in 2003; neither got follow up performances).

Abby Elliott adds another impression to her growing armada... Kristin Cavallari (and Fred's silence makes it even funnier). Here's Abby's Kristin:

Abby has also done Angelina Jolie 3 times and these other celebs once: Chloƫ Sevigny, Jamie Lynn Spears, Joan Cusack, and Rachel Maddow.

Abby needs some characters though!!!

Bobby Moynihan pulls out one of his funniest impressions in Guy Fieri:

Fred Armisen has done Governor Patterson 4 times in 2 seasons and has done Barack Obama 15 times in 3 seasons (this season just started, though).


Swine Flu Expert

Andy Samberg plays Shep, a University of Connecticut senior.

Tip 1: Avoid the sex.

Tip 2: Get a single room (involves crying)

Tip 3: Vitamins.

Andy got cut off, but we think it was planned. Andy's hilarious! (Like you didn't know.)

Megan Fox and Bill Clinton

Her mannerisms nailed Kathy and she was very funny, but the voice was a horrible as Kathy's impersonation of Cher, which she says is the worst impression out there. It would have been much better if she nailed the voice, which they should have switched Kristen and her. I know they're trying to give the newbies a crack to have a more solid female front instead of the kristen show (admit it- we'd all still watch, b/c she's flawlessly funny), but she has a closer voice and could mimic kathy more easily.

Thanks for posting this I missed it and forgot to record it! The clips were hilarious, so were the impressions and spoofs. Andy was funny in this and newcomer Nasim was pretty great too, can't wait to see more from her! =D
