Martin Short is a sketch comedy veteran, more comfortable on the Saturday Night Live stage than many of the actual cast members. Paul McCartney has been a guest on the show many times and seems to have little-to-no shame. Putting them together for a Christmas-themed sketch that segues directly into a musical performance was the highlight of last night's episode.
Talk about your Christmas come early! A few weeks ago during Jeremy Renner's stint hosting 'SNL,' we were ecstatic to learn that 'Django Unchained' star Jamie Foxx would return to hosting duties for the third time on December 8, with musical guest Ne-Yo. Now, 'Saturday Night Live' has unwrapped its best Christmas present yet, returning alumni Martin Short to the stage as host of the December 15 outing, accompanied by none other than musical legend Paul McCartney!
After '30 Rock's' first live show back in 2010, viewers knew they'd be treated to a few surprise celebrity cameos during last night's second live outing but fans on the west coast might be feeling a little cheated after learning that east coast viewers got Paul McCartney while they were saddled with...Kim Kardashian.
