Saturday Night Live has seen its ups and downs, peaks and valleys, and yet, despite the excruciating lows, I stick it through to experience those hilarious highs. Such highs are listed ahead in this exhaustively written account of SNL in its 30-sixth season on the air.
Special thanks to http://snltranscripts.jt.org for a little assistance in providing exact lines for me to use. Hope you enjoy, and I hope I spark a little debate.
Here we go!
25. OBAMA-JINTAO PRESS CONFERENCE (November 13)
PRINCIPALS: Fred Armisen (Barack Obama), Bill Hader (Hu Jintao), Nasim Pedrad (Translator)
SNL performed, essentially, the same sketch one year earlier, except with Will Forte playing the Chinese President. The premise is that America owes China $800 billion, and, at last November’s G20 Conference, Obama conveniently did not broach the subject of the debt during his talks with Jintao.
