GQ decided to go in for a ferocious bit of trolling in its new recent comedy issue, releasing a cover that lampoons the much-maligned cover of Vanity Fair’s January Hollywood issue. The GQ cover features comedians gown-wearing Kate McKinnon, Issa Rae and Sarah Silverman in a mangled mess of obviously PhotoShopped limbs — and bears a striking similarity to the Vanity Fair mashup of Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman earlier this year that seemed to show an extra leg.
Here is the official trailer for The Spy Who Dumped Me , in which Audrey (Mila Kunis) and her best bud Morgan (Kate McKinnon) dive headlong into international intrigue. Rather than, say, slamming the apartment door on said ex (Justin Theroux) — who says, “Some bad people are after me; now they’re after you” — they leap into action and soon find themselves on the run from the assassins in Europe and a suspiciously charming British agent (Sam Heughan) as they hatch a plan to…
Ellen DeGeneres took issue with Kate McKinnon's "SNL" impression of her but when Mila Kunis defended her, saying, "It’s pretty damn close, girlfriend.”
Jerry Seinfeld sat down with Alec Baldwin for an unfiltered conversation about Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and the #MeToo movement on "Sundays with Alec Baldwin."
During "Weekend Update," Che pared his own response to President Trump's Puerto Rico tweets to the bare minimum of contempt to achieve the maximum effect.
Kate McKinnon has been in so many memorable sketches over the past five years, but she really started getting everyone’s attention with her absolutely perfect take on singer Justin Bieber in faux Calvin Klein ads.
Kellyanne Conway says she’s “sorry to offend the black-stretch-pants women of America with a little color.” Conway is referring, of course, to the $3,600 red, white and blue Gucci military-style coat — meant to signify the Donald Trump revolution — that she wore, accompanied by her husband and four children, to the Jan. 20 inaugural ceremonies. “Color” also is a useful metaphor for seeing Conway, 50, as something of a bullfighter — with the news media as the bull — and her position on the Trump team as a designated target. “I’m the face of Donald Trump’s movement,” she says, with both pride and acknowledgement of her level of exposure.
Versatility and consistency were the hallmarks for these performers, who won acclaim for roles in the past calendar year more than once
It was the final weekend before the presidential election, and the level of humor about the candidates remained rock-bottom low. On Saturday Night Live, Kate McKinnon and Alec Baldwin did their final Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump sketch, and it was miserably unfunny. Baldwin-Trump kissed performers dressed as the FBI, the Ku Klux Klan, and Vladimir Putin to make us laugh at real-Trump’s fan-following with these folks. Not hilarious. McKinnon-Hillary made a Tic-Tac joke about Trump this late in the proceedings. Not hilarious.
Kate McKinnon recently won an Emmy Award, but she admitted to Jimmy Fallon, “Someone took it from my hand. And then, now I don’t know where it is."
It’s a question that has no doubt crossed everyone’s mind recently: could the Ghostbusters defeat the dreaded White Walkers from Game of Thrones? It was that kind of deep-dive reporting we did when Yahoo Movies had a chance to sit down with Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. McCarthy seems to think the kind of heat that the Ghostbusters are packing is enough to take out the White Walkers.
Summer officially started this week, so this Saturday Night Live throwback clip celebrates the best season of the year, at least when you were a kid, because school was off and summer camp was on! This sketch took place in May 2014, when Andy Samberg returned to Studio 8H to host for the first time since leaving SNL.
Saturday Night Live concluded its 41st season last week, and it was a year filled with hilarious political impressions, like Larry David as Bernie Sanders. And it started off in the very first episode of the season, when Hillary Clinton herself made a cameo on the show. She played Val the bartender, who listens to the woes of “Hillary Clinton” — the always brilliant Kate McKinnon. Hillary is blowing off some steam at the bar after a “hard couple of 22 years.”
If you ever needed a perfect example of the dreadful state of political humor on late-night television, you cannot do better than this weekend’s Saturday Night Live season finale Hillary-Bernie. Kate McKinnon certainly does a fun Hillary Clinton, emphasizing her frustrated angst at not being universally acclaimed as the candidate she thinks every Democrat should rally ’round. Jimmy Fallon seems to think that once he gets into orange make-up to Donald Trump, his job is done—whatever jokes his writers give him seem like afterthoughts.
March 20 is apparently Extraterrestrial Abductions Day (it’s a real thing, according to Wikipedia), and to celebrate, we present this Saturday Night Live throwback clip of interviews with three people who were abducted by aliens — but one of them had a kind of terrible experience. ICYMI, the sketch is a recent one, from the Dec. 5 episode hosted by Ryan Gosling. It might be one of the best bits from this current season of SNL. Gosling, Cecily Strong, and Kate McKinnon are three abductees relaying their experiences to government types.
On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, guests Kate McKinnon and Josh Brolin played a rousing game of “First Impressions” with Jimmy. The trio took turns impersonating some big celebs, and Josh Brolin kicked it off with his impression of social media mega-star Kim Kardashian. It took Jimmy and Kate a few tries to figure it out, because it seems that perhaps outside of her signature derriere, Josh Brolin doesn’t know anything about Kim Kardashian. ...
