Watch the ‘SNL’ Cast Almost Lose It During The “Californians” Sketch

Saturday Night Live
NBC

Did you miss Saturday Night Live last night? Well, fret not, gentle television viewer with a highly restrictive bedtime and/or busy late night schedule! With the power of the internet, there’s no reason to ever fall behind on the best (and occasionally worst) material that the immortal SNL has to offer.

While everyone is rightly talking about Steven Spielberg’s surprise appearance, the other big moment came during a sketch when Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig and Fred Armisen couldn’t contain their laughter.

Making fun of soap operas is easy and making fun of Californians doubly so (especially when those writing the jokes are stationed in New York City). Despite the weary subject matter, this sketch, depicting a fictional daytime soap called ‘The Californians,’ is pretty darn funny. Featuring a cast of characters who, even in the face of tragedy, can’t go thirty seconds without discussing how they’re navigating the city and where they’re finding parking, it’s the kind of sketch that gets most of its mileage from watching the performers barely contain their own laughter at their co-stars’ performances.

And hey, there’s nothing wrong with that.
