One in a series of reposts of the best Christmas bits from Saturday Night Live.
Saturday Night Live has been on television for over four decades now. The show is an American cultural icon, and it’s introduced us to actors and writers who have dominated and influenced film, TV, music, and comedy: Seth Meyers, John Belushi, Will Farrell, Eddie Murphy, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Dan Ackroyd, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, Chris Farley, Steven Colbert. The show lives in the moment, and so each weekly show contains bits that can be seen as a snapshot of our current social/ideological/ pulse. Among the very best–and most long lasting–of the bits produced for Saturday Night Live are the Christmas show sketches and short films. Continuing our tradition, each year we showcase the best of SNL’s Christmas material in our “Holidaze” series; this year, we start with a sketch produced for the 15 December 2018 show (with Matt Damon as host), featuring Matt Damon and Cecily Strong. It’s an instant classic, and no doubt it will resonate with just about everyone.
