SNL: Alex Moffat, Most Underrated Cast Member, Takes on Joe Biden, Plus Maya Rudolph Is Player of the Season
Alex Moffat, the most underrated player on “Saturday Night Live,” took on Joe Biden last night with great success. Moffat is often in sketches with his comedy partner, Mikey Day, and sometimes turns up on Weekend Update as the WASPy yachting guy. He should keep doing Biden, even though I miss Jason Sudeikis!
Maya Rudolph’s return to “SNL” this season has been the greatest thing ever. Not just her Kamala Harris, but everything she does. Of course, her musical turns are wonderful. Her late mom, Minnie Ripperton, is smiling in heaven.
Kristen Wiig was a wonderful host, appearing in many sketches, always an original. Dua Lipa disappointed me. It seemed like she was lip synching. She’s over produced, even if she was singing live.
Colin Jost made it seem like the show wasn’t returning until after the Inauguration. Really? A month off? Maybe they can find Aidy Bryant and Cecily Strong during the break.
