SNL 40: The Best Moments From the Big Anniversary SpecialScreenCrush Staff |
The SNL 40th Anniversary Special had a LOT going on. It was over three hours of comedy and music and stars and tributes all packed into one night. With so much going on, if you missed something, we can't say we blame you. We've covered the big items, like Celebrity Jeopardy, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, the new Digital Short, Wayne's World and the huge monologue, but we’re here to celebrate and relive some of the smaller moments.
Not every hilarious moment got it's own skit. There were some genius bits, like a late show callback to an earlier joke about Jon Lovitz being dead (he’s not dead). Or, Jerry Seinfeld bantering with Larry David (which we could watch forever). And, not every hilarious moment was intentional (see, Christopher Walken). Check out some of our favorite moments from the SNL 40th Anniversary Special and let us know if there's anything you think we missed.
