Not everyone wants to spend 90 minutes watching Saturday Night Live in its entirety. Each week, I’m posting my favorite sketch of each episode, so you can just catch the best of SNL..
This week’s show: Jonah Hill
The Sketch of the week: Olya Povlatsky
Why: Kate McKinnon's Weekend Update characters have become one of my favorite parts of SNL. This is a character she did once a few years ago, that i never thought we'd see again. I was so happy to see my favorite woman from a poor Russian village back again to talk about the Olympics (even though this bit has almost nothing to do with the olympics.) It's a great mix of strong writing and very strong performing. I hope we see Olya again!
