‘SNL’ Deleted Sketch: Louis C.K. Plays a Klingon With a Very Unusual Poster Collection

When an episode of ‘SNL‘ is produced, countless sketches are pitched, but only a small number of pitches are written, and then even few written sketches are accepted. And then even fewer scripts actually make the finished show with several often being cut during dress rehearsal for a variety of reasons. The video above gives us a look into how the ‘SNL’ sausage is made — it’s a sketch that was cut before the final airing, starring guest host Louis C.K. as a ‘Star Trek‘ villain who really loves his posters of shirtless humans.

With his head-ridges and battle armor, C.K. actually doesn’t make for a bad Klingon. The sketch finds him threatening the crew of a Federation vessel and demanding that they turn over a dangerous weapon, but he’s ultimately more interested in showing off and talking about his sexy poster collection of hunks than conquering the universe.

C.K. throws himself into the role with abandon, playing everything to hilt even when the material simply isn’t that funny. Things are even more dire for the human characters, who get even fewer good jokes. However, anyone who can’t appreciate a ‘Star Trek’ parody sketch where a Klingon is obsessed with posters of male models is no friend of ours! Funny or not, we’re delighted this thing even exists in the first place.
