Penn State’s own Keegan Michael Key hosted SNL last weekend 5/15/21. While most of the episode was pretty on par for SNL – a few hit and misses, a few triggered giggles – there was at least one highlight that may make the episode go down in history as one of the best.
While Keegan was to not reprise any old roles, he did play Michael Jordan in a “Last Dance” skit. Keegan’s performance was one of the best of the night, but the beautiful thing is that all the other cast members also had their bet performances in recent history. Heidi Gardner played John Michael Wozniak, and Keenan played Charles Barkley, each perfectly comedically executed.
I personally haven’t laughed this hard at SNL in recent history. What do you think? One of the best in the past 10 years?
