Before Kay Cannon was the badass writer/producer/badass behind Pitch Perfect and Girl Boss, she was a teeny tiny baby performing in improv shows. This is one of those shows. We’d have Kay as our sidekick any day of the week.
How rad is it that SNL finally figured out what to do with Leslie Jones??? She has been absolutely murdering it this season, but that’s no surprise to anybody who followed her stand-up career. Case in point: Problem Child, her stand-up special from 2010. Big Les goes FULL OUT with her takes on girl squads, good dick, being super tall, and way way more. So please enjoy this throwback clip, in which she describes your 4 best friends and you with deadly accuracy.
All together now: awwwwww. We found this deep cut video of Ellen’s first stand-up tv appearance, and she’s just so precious and 90’s we can’t even stand it.
And now for a truly spooky throwback! Circa the dark and mystical days of 2007, SNL did a dead-on political sketch featuring kween Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton. Omg remember when we thought she was gonna be the ’08 nominee? And when Obama didn’t have white hair? And when Kristen Wiig was just playing ‘the wife’ in sketches? Truly a different, more innocent time.
Get ready to squeal until your squealing muscles go weak. It’s tiny baby Anna Kendrick singing and dancing!! With the very hairy and sexual Kit Kat girls from Cabaret for some reason? Who knows, Broadway is weird.
Anyway enjoy this deep cut from the WhoHaha vaults. Here’s to the once and forever kween.
We’re starting to think that Tina Fey can see the future. This sketch from the 90’s featuring a competent woman in politics being belittled and shouted over gives us a real weird deja vu feeling. Fortunately Fey and Dratch can make even the darkest shit hilarious.
