Five Favorite Clips Featuring the Women of SNL
In honor of Kristen Wiig decision to leave Saturday Night Live, I have chosen my five favorite clips featuring the SNL‘s women. This list is very Weekend Update heavy because that is they type of humor I find funny. If you have a favorite SNL Clip that did not make my list, please share it in the comments. I would love to watch it.
5. Weekend Update: Tina Fey Montage- Tina Fey
Tina Fey was fantastic as anchor of Weekend Update. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find a whole sketch on the Internet. While this clip is no where near the funniest, Tina Fey does make a point about scientific research that gets a few laughs.
4. Weekend Update: Jane, You Ignorant Slut!- Jane Curtin
Point/Counterpoint is a classic because of its catchphrase. You just know when Jane Curtin is finished making her point that the first thing out of Dan Aykroyd’s mouth is going to be “Jane, You Ignorant Slut!”
3. Roseanna Rosannadanna- Gilda Radner
This third clip also comes from Weekend Update, but this time it is not one of the anchors getting all of the laughs. Gilda Radner as Roseanna Rosannadanna starts off giving advice to a man who just quit smoking and then goes into one of her famous rants.
2. Weekend Update: Sarah Palin Rap- Amy Poehler
“Can I get a what what from the senior section?” Amy Poehler is hilarious in this memorable Weekend Update segment from the 2010 election. While this clip probably will not stay memorable for much longer since Sarah Palin has faded from the media spotlight, it is impressive seeing a pregnant Poehler jump around rapping. Also, the rap is extremely catchy.
1. Schweddy Balls- Rachel Dratch and Anna Gasteyer
The skit that inspired a Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream flavor. Rachel Dratch and Anna Gasteyer want Alec Baldwin’s Schweddy Balls. Need I say more?
