Jack Harlow on ‘SNL’: See the perfect sketches from this week

Two weeks after Megan Thee Stallion pulled double responsibility on “Saturday Night Live,” one other rapper, Jack Harlow, served as host and musical visitor of the present.

Throughout the sketch comedy collection’ Halloween episode, Harlow carried out “Lil Secret,” “State Fair” and “First Class” from his newest album, “Come Home the Kids Miss You.” He additionally acted in a number of sketches all through the present — which featured shock cameos from Tom Hanks and Bobby Moynihan.

“I don’t know what it is about me, but people on the internet, they liked to roast me,” Harlow stated throughout his opening monologue.

“One guy said, ‘I don’t know why y’all think Jack Harlow is so special. You can find somebody who looks like him at any local gas station.’ I’ve heard them say I look like if you tried to draw Justin Timberlake from memory. … My favorite one might be, ‘Jack Harlow looks like the guy who rips the tickets in half at the movie theaters.’”

This week’s “SNL” broadcast tackled all the things from the 2022 midterm elections to Kanye “Ye” West’s antisemitic meltdown. Right here’s a sampling of key moments from the present. (Warning: A number of the movies under comprise specific language.)

Chilly open mocks Republican candidates forward of midterm elections

This week’s chilly open starred Heidi Gardner as “PBS NewsHour” host Judy Woodruff interviewing Republican politicians Herschel Walker (Kenan Thompson), Dr. Mehmet Oz (Mikey Day) and Kari Lake (Cecily Robust).

“All three of you have been gaining in the polls the past few weeks, despite none of you having any political experience,” Gardner’s Woodruff stated as her conservative friends nodded in settlement.

Hanks returns as David S. Pumpkins

Throughout one nostalgic sketch, a chill-seeking group of jail tour riders (and the “SNL” viewers) have been trick-or-treated to an sudden go to from David S. Pumpkins, a traditional dancing Halloween character performed by Hanks.

“I’m David Pumpkins,” Hanks — wearing a jack-o’-lantern go well with — introduced to cheers from the gang. “And I’m gonna scare you stupid.”

Skechers brags about rejecting West

A digital parody of a Skechers advert made mild of the shoe firm’s transfer to escort West out of its headquarters in Manhattan Seaside after the scorned rapper confirmed up uninvited.

“We were appalled by Kanye’s horrific comments, and we vow to never work with him in any capacity,” stated a Skechers spokesperson performed by Robust. “But can we also point out that, of all the companies he could have approached and been rejected by, he chose Skechers?”

Moynihan brings Drunk Uncle again to ‘Weekend Update’

West got here up once more when former “SNL” forged member Moynihan reprised his fan-favorite Drunk Uncle character on “Weekend Update.”

“Donda! Donda! Donda!” Moynihan shouted.

“I’ve been listening to a whole lot of what [West] has to say, and guess what? I think he might be crazy. That kind of talk doesn’t fly anymore. I learned … a lot during the pan-Demi Moore, OK? I did the work. I know that Black Adams matter. I saw ‘Bros’ in theaters, pal,” Moynihan stated. “And — no homo — it was great. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Gay guys are still funnier than women.”

AA assembly turns right into a Pixar pitch assembly

One other sketch starred Harlow and others as a group of Alcoholics Nameless members who appeared much less serious about confronting their alcohol use and extra serious about perfecting “the perfect pitch for a Pixar movie.”

“There is something I’ve been thinking about for a while,” Harlow stated. “A concept for a touching computer-animated film. It’s about lost luggage trying to find its way home.”
