Kumail Nanjiani hosted SNL this past weekend and continued the trend of stand up comics being some of the best hosts. Stand up comedy seems to be a good pre cursor for hosts of SNL, and most of them have great stage presence which always helps when you’re doing live TV. Nanjiani was a great first time host, and my favorite sketch was Bank Breakers. The reveal of Cecily Strong’s character being a veteran with a sick child was great, as was Nanjiani’s reaction. Jackets and jeans, baby.
P.S. If you haven’t yet, please watch his monologue as well.
