My Favorite Sketch From Melissa McCarthy’s #SNL – The Day Beyonce Turned Black
First of all, if you haven’t seen this episode of SNL please go back and watch it in it’s entirety. There was not one bad sketch (outside of the cold open) and SNL took their recipe of giving McCarthy oddball characters to play and shot it to the moon. The ‘horror movie test audience’ and ‘pick up line’ sketches were amazing, and every other sketch was good to great. I can’t wait until McCarthy hosts again so her opening monologue can be a Timerblake-esque five timers celebration. But back to the Beyoncé sketch; this is a great example of SNL taking a ridiculous concept and finding the humor in it. Beyoncé was criticized for her new music video/song Formation as well as her Super Bowl performance, because once someone’s goes against what the majority of people believe they should be doing, people get angry. I really can’t say enough good things about this sketch, and the fact that it was filmed and edited in two days blows my mind. Watch this now, and then go back and watch it again.
