Very like their tackle Serial and Going Clear up to now, SNL is fairly good at mimicking the new documentary-style — or podcast — of the second. So with Netflix’s Wild, Wild Nation making headlines and creating dialogue about cults and the nation’s historical past, the late-night comedy staple is right here to ship an ideal parody. Not solely does it function an MVP efficiency from Kenan Thompson, but it surely additionally welcomes again Nasim Pedrad to the present for a enjoyable cameo.
Clearly, Pedrad’s return was probably the results of John Mulaney internet hosting given their connection on his short-lived Fox sitcom, however it is usually the newest in a string of previous forged members making appearances this season. And as for Thompson, between the lobster sketch, LaVar Ball, and this look, he was the stable bedrock for SNL this week. His Compton transplant right here is ridiculous and the wild card of the bunch.
Whereas everyone else is enjoying up the documentary, he’s speaking about being compelled to go away dwelling because of the crime scenario — “I dedicated a bunch of crimes and it turned a scenario” — his insistence that the cult was nothing extra The Bloods, and the give attention to simply doing cocaine and having as a lot intercourse as attainable. To not point out the ridiculous wig he was sporting within the flashback sequences.
If you happen to haven’t seen the Netflix documentary but, this may be your greatest purpose to take action. It gained’t be as humorous, however it’s a style earlier than leaping into the entire thing. Then you’ll be able to cease pretending to grasp what everyone else is speaking about at lunch.
