Larry David Stole The Show As Bernie Sanders During SNL’s ‘Democratic Debate’ Cold Open
I knew SNL was going to spoof the democratic debate during Saturday night’s show, but what I did not expect was Larry David to make a surprise cameo and steal the show, and possibly even the season. He was SO GOOD. When he first appeared, I knew it wasn’t Sanders but couldn’t put my finger on who it was, because whoever it was, it looked just like Bernie. Then I recognized the voice, and after that it was pure bliss. SNL is probably the only show in the world where a writer quits the show because none of his sketches made the air and then 30 years later he’s starring in the cold open sketch as a presidential candidate. This was probably the sketch of the night, and I wouldn’t be mad if Larry showed up again for an encore.
