'SNL' and the Former Porn Stars Want to Sell You Some "Lambertinis"

EDIT

Sometimes, 'SNL' is at its absolute best when it decides to go fully and truly off the rails. When the show does abandon reality, it often does so in the final sketch of the night, where things are allowed to get crazier and funkier since more easily unsettled audiences tend to be asleep. Of course, this is just a long-winded way of saying that no sketch has dominated the final segments in recent years quite like the "former porn stars," which pushes the weirdness to truly strange and amazing levels.

Like the other sketches featuring these characters, the set-up is the same. Vanessa Bayer and Cecily Strong's oblivious adult actresses are still trying to segue into a career in TV advertising and this time around, they're trying to sell us Lamborghinis (or, as they call them, "Lambertinis"). As usual, they've brought along a friend from their former life and this time around, it's adult film director Martin Porn-cese (guest host Jonah Hill), whose X-rated classics include, uh, 'The Wolf of Wall Street.' This sketch also shows us what always tends to be true about live comedy: when one of the actors can't help but break character and laugh, the entire thing only gets funnier.

'SNL' currently has one of the strongest female line-ups in its 40 year history, so it's refreshing to see that the most bonkers recurring sketch in ages lets two of the funniest (and most underrated) comediennes on TV just cut loose. More of this, please.
