Bishop Michael Curry… Kenan Thompson

[Starts with Michael Che in his set]

Michael Che: The unexpected star of this morning’s Royal wedding is Chicago Bishop Michael Curry who delivered a lively sermon that British journalists called “Unconventional.” Here to explain is Bishop Michael Curry..

[Bishop Michael Curry slides in] [cheers and applause]

Bishop Michael Curry: Oh! What’s up, Michael? Oh, thank the lord above. It is good to be back around black folks again.

Michael Che: So, how was it?

Bishop Michael Curry: Did you see it? Oh, it was tough, man. Real tough. I preached and I testified and I yelled while 500 stuffy people looked at me like I was farting in an elevator.

Michael Che: Yeah, I feel for you, man. what did it feel like up there?

Bishop Michael Curry: Oh, man, it felt kind of like somebody opened up a chicken and waffle skios in a middle of a pottery barn. And I was working it, Michael. I’m up there giving my all, and a sea of white faces is just looking back at me and I thought, “Oh, lord, help me. This must be what it’s like to be Darius Rucker.”

Michael Che: I take you’ve never done a royal wedding before.

Bishop Michael Curry: Oh, of course I have, Michael. I’m a black preacher from Chicago. The biggest wedding I ever did was Scotty Pippin.

Michael Che: Well, despite the crowd, your sermon got great reviews.

Bishop Michael Curry: That’s coz it was all about love. Love is great. Love is redemptive. Love can change the world. And love is what makes a Subaru a Subaru. Subaruuuu!

Michael Che: You’re comfortable, man. I think you did great. But some people said it went on too long.

Bishop Michael Curry: Oh, that’s nonsense. They told me I have five minutes. But the good lord multiplied it into a cool 16.

Michael Che: Well, you did great and whole world knows your name now.

Bishop Michael Curry: Yeah. I’m really excited. When you’re a black preacher who becomes famous, you need to get your phone tapped by the FBI or audited by the IRS. I’m looking forward to it. Praise Jesus.

Michael Che: Bishop Michael Curry, everybody.
