7 of the Greatest Saturday Night Live Sketches

While Saturday Night Live has a history of fantastic sketches, only a few truly stand out. So, continue below to find out the seven greatest Saturday Night Live sketches.

1.) Mr. Robinson’s Christmas

Eddie Murphy reprised his role as Mr. Robinson in this infamous Saturday Night Live sketch. This time, Mr. Robinson was dressed as Santa Clause. He discussed the importance of Christmas, and how you can abbreviate Christmas as “X-Mas”. Then, he continues talking about X-Mas, but relates it to his past as an “X-Con”.

2.) Olympia Restaurant

Featuring John Belushi, Robert Klein, and Bill Murray, the cast of Saturday Night Live visit and works at Olympia Restaurant. Despite being a restaurant (thus there should be a variety of food options), you can only order cheeseburgers, chips, and Pepsi at the Olympia Restaurant. This angers one of the customers, which is played by Robert Klein. So, Klein’s character decides to argue with the staff, and demand being served eggs.

3.) Cheerleaders at a Football Game

The third infamous Saturday Night Live sketch is Cheerleaders at a Football Game. In this infamous sketch, Spartan high school students, Craig and Arianna, cheer at their high school’s football game. But, there’s a catch: Craig and Arianna didn’t make the cheerleading squad. So, watch Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri awkwardly dance and cheer at a football game.

4.) Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton Address the Nation

When there’s a presidential election going on, you can be sure that Saturday Night Live will make fun of it. So, during the 2008 presidential election, Saturday Night Live came out with this hilarious sketch. In Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton Address the Nation, Sarah Palin (played by Tina Fey) and Hillary Clinton (played by Amy Poehler) are seen addressing the American public about various issues. Some issues seem important, while others are about their obvious inability to agree on anything.

5.) Chippendales Audition

We are all aware of the popular exotic male dance club, Chippendales. During this Saturday Night Live sketch, a panel of judges (played by Kevin Nealon, Mike Myers, and Jan Hooks) hold an audition for a spot in the famous club, Chippendales. The audition we get to see is of two dancers, Adrian (played by Patrick Swayze) and Barney (played by Chris Farley). Together, they perform wild and sexy dance moves.
