Kristen Wiig At-Home Monologue

Kristen Wiig

[Starts with Kristen Wiig waking up in her bed.]

Kristen Wiig: What? Me? Host? Now? [smiles] Okay.

[Kristen goes away from camera and comes back in all dressed up in just a second]

Let’s do this.

[music playing] [Kristen Wiig is dancing in her home.]

You want some biscuits with this tea? [showing her breasts] Let’s start the show.

[Kristen gets on the floor. There are candles everywhere]

I got down on this floor because I wanted to get serious. This is the Mother’s Day show. And at SNL, it’s very special time to celebrate moms. Unfortunately, probably like a lot of you, I can’t be with my mom on this mother’s day. So, I hope it’s okay. I’d like to tell her I love her and send her good luck. She’s in competition over Zoom right now, and mom, I hope you win. She actually sent a picture.

[Cut to a picture of a body building woman with Kristen Wiig’s face.] [Cut back to Kristen Wiig]

People say we look alike but I don’t see it. You know, I’ve been thinking lately. I don’t know if I truly appreciated my mom the first 45 years of my life. But this year, I’m feeling specially grateful. Her advice, her love, I’m so thankful for all the things she’s taught me preparing me to be a mom myself. Things like breastfeeding. [shows two pieces of chicken breasts] Babies love that chicken. She would always say that.

So, I do want to thank my mom and all the moms out there who have been helping us get through this and who have been there and who are watching over us. We thank you so much. Happy mother’s day. Thank you moms. And thank you, dads.

Now, I would like to finish this off by– It’s actually something kind of sweet. It’s a lullaby that my mom used to sing to me when I was a little baby up until when I was a little girl when I would get scared and– I’d like to sing that for you.

[singing] The moon is out
the stars are out
now close your eyes
now hush, little baby
don’t wait till the morning
don’t make a sound
coz mommy loves you
goodnight.

Aw, my voice. We have a great show for you tonight. Stick around, we’ll be right back.

Tom Hanks At-Home Monologue

Tom Hanks

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Tom Hanks.

[Tom Hanks is in his home. He is wearing a suit.] [cheers and applause]

Tom Hanks: Hey, hey. Wow. Wow. Thank you. That is some sound effect of applause and whistles. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, engineers. Hey, all you cool cats and kittens. It’s me, your old pal. Don’t worry now. Don’t be afraid. This shaved head was just for movie. My hair is growing back very slowly. It does save time in the shower. So, I don’t know. Maybe we should all do it, huh?

Hey, it’s good to be here, though it is also very weird to be here hosting Saturday Night Live from home. It is a strange time to try and be funny. But trying to be funny is SNL’s whole thing. So, we thought, “What the heck? Let’s give it a shot.” But why me as host? Well, for one, I have been the celebrity canary in the coal mine for the coronavirus. And ever since being diagnosed, I have been more like America’s dad like ever before since no one wants to be around me very long, and I make people uncomfortable. Now, I was diagnosed back in March with the coronavirus. I was first diagnosed down in Australia. Now, the folks in Australia are fantastic in every way. But they use celcius instead of fahrenheit when they take your temperature. So, when I come in, they say, “You’re 36!” Which seemed very bad to me. Turns out 36 is fine. 38 is bad. So, basically it’s how Hollywood treats female actors. But now, my wife and I are doing fine. We’re doing great. We’re hunkered down like all of it should be. And in fact, this suit, this is the first time I’ve worn anything other than sweatpants since March 11th. My wife had to help me put it on because I forgot how buttons work. But it turns out there’s these little discs and they slide into these slots. Amazing.

Now, this Saturday Night Live is gonna be al little different. For one thing, it has been filmed entirely by the SNL cast who are currently quarantine in their homes just like this. Well, not like this. I mean, their homes are little more like– You know what? I’m gonna let you be the judge of that.

Also, there’s no such thing as Saturdays anymore. It’s just, everyday is today. And we’re not really live. But, we are doing everything we can to make this feel like the SNL you know and love. I am even using cue cards. [pulls a paper from behind the camera] See? I’m even using cue cards. That’s riffed, baby. That’s what I am doing.

So, tonight I can do everything a host does during a normal SNL. I could even do that old chestnut the question and answer monologue. Let’s see, does anyone have any questions? Yes, what about you sir? How about you?

[Cut to Tom Hanks wearing a hat and a fake mustache. He has a smoking pipe in his mouth]

Um, I have a question for Mr. Hanks. I can’t help but notice that you are in excellent shape. What is the secret of your physical regiment?

[Cut back to Tom Hanks wearing suit]

Come on. I just try to stretch a couple of times a week. Go easy on the carbs and the cookies. Thank you though. Anybody else? Yes, you sir.

[Cut to Tom hanks wearing a cowboy hat]

Alright, I got a question for Tommy Tim Tam. What’s a right proper way to get a daily dose of your vegemite?

[Cut back to Tom Hanks wearing suit]

Enough of that. Well, we have a great show for you tonight. Now, is it gonna look a little different than what you’re used to? Yes. Will it be weird to see sketches without big sets and costumes? Sure. But, will it make you laugh? Ugh. You know, it’s SNL. You know. There’ll be some good stuff. Maybe one or two stinkers. You know the drill. But let’s go. Hey, stay safe. We are in this for the duration. And we will get through this together. We are going to thank our hospital workers, our first responders and all the helpers. The supermarket stockers. The people who deliver our food. The people who are making takeout for us. The men and women who are keeping this country going at the time we need more than ever before. So, we’re gonna take care of them and we’re gonna take care of each other. So, let’s try to now just enjoy the show. We will be right back.

Daniel Craig James Bond Monologue

Daniel Craig

Chloe Fineman

Heidi Gardner

Beck Bennett

Kate McKinnon

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Daniel Craig.

[Daniel Craig walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

Daniel Craig: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. It is lovely to be back hosting Saturday Night Live. I hosted the show eight years ago. And my life is very different now. I moved to New York. So, when people say to me where Brooklyn at, I can actually tell them where it is. It’s over the Brooklyn bridge or the Manhattan bridge, just depending on the traffic.

Now, everyone assumes that because I played James Bond, I’m this, very suave sophisticated guy. Well, I have to admit. I kind of am. I mean, I’m James Bond. I know English people as supposed to be sort of humble. You know, they’re like, “Oh, I’m just a nerd.” You know? I’m not a nerd. You’re a nerd. Now, this next James Bond film is gonna be my last. But, it’s gonna be one of the best. Because we got Phoebe Waller-Bridge from “Fleabag” to help with some of the dialog. It’s not gonna be that different, but every so often, I will turn to the camera and I will say, “My name’s Bond. James Bond.” Is it bad that i fancy the pope?

Now, you also may have heard the release of the film has been delayed due to public health and so. But there’s this scene that’s my favorite. And you know, the producers are being kind enough to let me show it tonight. So, let’s take a look.

[Cut to sneak peek of “No Time to Die: 007”] [James Bond walks in a craps game in a casino near Chloe. They’re all dressed very well.]

Craps. [whispering in Chloe’s ear] I always thought your game was stealing state’s secret.

Chloe: [with accent] Hmm, whatever you want from me, James. The odds are not in your favor.

James Bond: Well, maybe I’ll be lucky.

[James Bond shows the dice to Chloe. Chloe blows on them.]

Now, where’s your boss?

[James Bond throws the dice] [James Bond and Chloe and looking at each other.]

Dealer: Seven. Winner.

James Bond: Really? Ha-ha. I just rolled a seven.

Chloe: What makes you think you can stop him?

James Bond: Oh, that’s simple, my darling. [throws the dice] I’m double-O…

Dealer: Seven.

James Bond: I can’t really– Not just once!

Dealer: High hand at the table, folks. Place your bets.

[a drunk couple joins the table]

Heidi: [to James Bond] Keep it up, tuxedo. My ass in the hole, you gotta dig me out.

Beck: I put big money down here, alright. Don’t lost em’. My wife’s gonna kill me. Ha! Who cares? Right? It’s my money. Right?

James Bond: Wow-wow-wow! What do I do now? What do I do now?

Old lady: Roll an eight for this old bean bag, would you?

James Bond: Okay. I can’t believe. My heart is beating so fast. This is just like– Okay, give me an eight. Give me an eight. Give me an eight.

[James Bond throws the dice]

Dealer: Six-two. Easy eight.

Old lady: This slime is rolling hot bones tongiht.

[Kenan walks in near James Bond]

Kenan: You sir. You. You, sir. You. Sir, you, you.

James Bond: I don’t know why. I never play craps. It’s so exciting. So- I- Okay. What do I do now?

Chloe: That depends. What you about–

[Heidi interrupts Chloe]

Heidi: Another game now. Right now, it’s don’t roll seven.

James Bond: Okay. Got it. Got it. Waitress, waitress, can I get a vodka-martini. Shake it– Oh, you know what? No. Can I get a vodka and Redbull, pine glass please. Thank you. No seven. No seven.

[James Bond throws the dice]

Dealer: We got a six.

All: Oh!

Kenan: This guy! This!

Beck: Let’s go. Let’s put all our chips on hard four.

James Bond: Let’s do it. Let’s do it. Hard four. Hard four.

[Chloe moves near James Bond]

Chloe: James, perhaps we should move this discussion into my suite.

James Bond: Okay, I’ll meet you up then. If I roll a hard four, you’re all gonna call me Simba because I am the king of the jungle.

[James Bond throws the dice]

Dealer: Two and two, make four the hard way.

[everybody cheering]

James Bond: [shouting] Yo! Yo! What my name is?

All: Simba! [Chloe is bored and embarrassed.] [James Bond drinks his vodka with Redbull.]

Chloe: [in James Bond’s ear] My boss is in the Knezevic, Iceland. That is where specter is located.

James Bond: Cool. Ladies and gentlemen, I have an announcement to make. I’m buzzed.

[everybody cheering]

Okay, okay, what do I want now?

Kenan: Snake eyes.

James Bond: Oh, you don’t deserve snake eyes.

All: Oh, please!

James Bond: Okay, okay, okay. Then work for it, bitches!

[the old woman walks to James Bond and shows him her breasts]

Old lady: Hey, why don’t you take a look at these old snake eyes?

James Bond: Oh! This got you snake eyes.

All: Yay!

[James Bond throws the dice]

Dealer: It seems Mr. Bond, your luck [points a gun at James Bond] has run out.

Chloe: He’s a specter agent.

[in no time, James Bond shoots at the dealer on his chest.]

Dealer: Well played, Bond.

James Bond: Everyone alright?

Kenan: Yeah. Specially since you just rolled snake eyes!

All: Yay!

[James Bond starts shooting on the ceiling out of excitement.] [Cut back to Daniel Craig in SNL monologue set.]

Daniel Craig: We have got a great show. The Weeknd is here. So, stick around. We’ll be right back.

[Kenan jumps in]

Kenan: This guy. Him. Him, y’all!

John Mulaney Monologue

John Mulaney

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, John Mulaney.

[John Mulaney walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

John Mulaney: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. It is great to be here hosting Saturday Night Live. My name is 1 and if you’re watching at home and you don’t know who I am, I’m sorry. Um, I am like Louis Farrakhan. I mean a lot to a small group of people. It’s a leap year Saturday and I am the first person to ever host Saturday Night Live on a leap year Saturday. It’s very exciting. Yes. I am also the first hots who has done the least in between his second and third time hosting. I have nothing coming up. I am here to promote the month of March. “March, if winter had spring. March.”

Clap if your father is between the ages of 60 and 75. [audience clapping] Yeah. What’s going on with them? What’s wrong with them? They’re so emotional. My dad hugs me so tightly sometimes, I’m like, “Is one of us about to die?” And my dad has no friends. And your dad has no friends. If you think your dad has friends, you’re wrong. You mom has friends and they have husbands. Those are not your dad’s friends. Why do none of our baby boomer dads have friends? I have a few theories. One, they forgot. Two, they want to be alone. Dads want to be alone. I’m not a dad but i observed one. And he would go into his room and read about World War II. All of our dads are cramming for some World War II quiz show and I can’t wait to watch it. We’re just going to change channels and see how our dads win a $900,000 on Normandy Triva. Another theory I have is that dads really only care about money. But you’re not allowed to talk about money in United States. It’s taboo. So, they don’t have anything to talk about, so they have no friends.

A friend of mine once told me that he would rather his wife die than go through a divorce with her. He said that to me. Later that day I asked him, “Hey, what are you making this year?” And he said, “That’s personal.” It is hard to make friends when you’re an adult male. I think that’s the greatest miracle of Jesus, truly, is that he was a 33 year old man and he had 12 best friends. And they were not his wife’s friends or husbands. And he didn’t meet them a long time ago in school. He met them in his 30s. Twelve best friends! Remember when your dad went fishing once? These guys went fishing every day. They were all best friends. And he’d do magic tricks for them and they loved it. He did magic tricks to the one time that he should have done magic and then he forgot to. And they were taking– that must have been disappointing for his twelve best friends. They’re taking him away in chains and they’re like, “Do the chain trick you have.” “I don’t know. I don’t know how to break chains.”

Shifting topics entirely. It is a leap year I said. Leap year began in the year 45 BC under Julius Caesar. It’s true. He started the leap year in order to correct the calendar and we still do it to this day. Another thing that happened under Julius Caesar was he was such a powerful maniac that all the senators grabbed knives and they stabbed him to death. That’d be an interesting thing if we brought that back now. I asked my lawyer if I could make that joke and he said, “Let me call another lawyer” and that lawyer said yes. I don’t want to dwell on politics but I dislike the founding fathers immensely. They are weird group of guys. I hate when people are like, “Go has never created such a great group of men as the founding fathers.” Yeah, the 92 bulls. The 92 bulls were better than the founding fathers. The 96 bulls, maybe. That’s actually a perfect metaphor for the United States. When I was a boy, the United States was like, Michael Jordan in 1992. And now, the United States is like Michael Jordan now. The founding fathers were dumb because they made the constitution and they numbered it and the order is weird. They sat down, they had a feather. They knew how to make a pen. They were just being jerks. “Amendment number one, freedom of speech. And freedom of assembly. And freedom of religion. Okay, that’s one. How about two?” [yelling] “You can have all the guns you want.” “For two? How about like 17, 19?” “No, two. Guns!” “Alright. Let’s just put guns. He seems upset. Alright. Amendment number three.” [yelling] “The army can’t live in your house.” “Okay, buddy. I think you’re going through your own thing in life right now. And I feel for you. I think a soldier might be sleeping with your wife and you want to grab a gun and kill him. And I feel for you. But that cannot affect the list. This is like a ‘forever list.’ And we haven’t even got into basics like morning time is when you eat breakfast. So.” “Put it down in writing. The army can’t live in your house.”  And don’t you thank god everyday for that third amendment? The other afternoon, this was Tuesday. I was in my apartment and the buzzer rang. And it was 101st airborne. And they said, “Permission to live in your house?” And I went, “Third amendment.” And he said, “Gentlemen, he’s invoked the third. Let’s fall out and find another house to live in. A thing that we do.”

In summary and in summation, a very nice thing happened to me this year. This is truly lovely. A young woman from the make a wish foundation made it her wish to meet me. And I was very flattered by that. I was very honored that she wanted to meet me. I was very concerned that she used he wish to meet me. I’m not someone, you know, you need to wish to meet. I’m around. I take the four-five express train a lot. I take this six. You can find me. You need the ‘make a plan foundation’ to find me. But I wanted to do it. And she said, “I just want to see how you spend a day.” And I said, “Oh, no. That’s even worse. I wouldn’t wish that on a healthy adult.” So, I didn’t want her to sit around watching me eat sour patch kids and repeat gossip. So, I brought her here to Saturday Night Live coz I still had my ID badge. And I bring her into the studio. Her name is Elizabeth. And they were rehearsing a big political sketch and Lin-Manuel Miranda is in this sketch playing Julian Castro. It’s very exciting. And she sees Lin-Manuel Miranda and she says, “Is that Lin-Manuel Miranda?” And I go, “Yeah. You wanna you wanna meet Lin?” I didn’t know if he went by Lin or Lin-Manuel, and I don’t know him. But I said, “Come on, let’s go.” So, I go up. I go up, “Hey, Lin [soft voice] Manuel. This is Elizabeth. Elizabeth, Lin [soft voice] Manuel.” And he was so nice to her and he took a photo with her and it was really beautiful moment. And we were walking out those doors down that hallway afterwards. She was really emotional and she went, “I don’t know. I don’t know if I should say this.” And I said, “Elizabeth, say whatever you want.” And she said, “Lin-Manuel Miranda was my first choice.” And I made her wish come true.

We have got a great show tonight ladies and gentlemen. David Byrne is here. Stick around. We’ll be right back.

Tina Fey

Jerry Seinfeld

Benedict Cumberbatch

Chris Rock

Robert De Niro

Fred Armisen

Anne Hathaway

Donald Glover

Tracy Morgan

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Tina Fey.

[Tina Fey walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

Tina Fey: Thank you, guys. It is so great to be hosting the season finale of Saturday Night Live. We’ve had a lovely time here this week. In fact, I realized it’s been 20 years since I started working here. [cheers and applause] Yeah. And I got here on Monday. And people in the crew came up to me in the studio and said, “Welcome home.” And it just made me feel so bad that I didn’t remember their names.

Also, kind of exciting, yesterday was my birthday. [cheers and applause] Yeah. I turned 60. No. Not really. I just say that so that people will be like, “Wow! You look amazing.” And since it is my birthday this week, they said that I could do anything I wanted for my monologue, so I would like to take some questions from the audience. So, does anybody have a question? Yes, you sir.

Jerry Seinfeld: Yes, hi. I have a question. [cheers and applause] Do you think the show has too many celebrity cameos these days? Because I’m worried the cast isn’t getting a chance to grow.

Tina Fey: Um, yeah. I agree. Actually, I think it kind of hurts the show a little bit. Thank you. Um, yes, you sir.

Beck Bennett: Um, yes–

Tina Fey: [interrupting] No, sir, I’m pointing at the man behind you.

[Beck Bennett walks away. Benedict Cumberbatch is behind him.] [cheers and applause]

Benedict Cumberbatch: Yeah. Is Kenan Thompson gonna be on the show tonight?

Tina Fey: Um, yeah. Kenan will definitely be on the show tonight.

Benedict Cumberbatch: He’s great. But have you ever thought about replacing Kenan with a slightly more famous person? It could be fun.

Tina Fey: Ah! I don’t think that’s been suggested. But I’ll pass it along. Thank you. Yes, anyone else? Uh, yes! Right over there, sir.

Chris Rock: Ah! Never mind. [cheers and applause] He already asked my question. [pointing at Benedict Cumberbatch]

Tina Fey: Oh! Yes, you, sir.

Robert De Niro: Yeah, I just wanted to ask [cheers and applause] with all of the make up, I mean, could you tell that I was Robert Mueller?

Tina Fey: Yes, Mr. De Niro, we knew that was you. Yeah.

Rovert De Niro: Okay. Okay. That’s a relief because this could be, you know, a big break for me.

Tina Fey: Yes. Oh! Yes, hey. it’s Fred Armisen. Okay.

[cheers and applause]

Fred Armisen: Hi, Tina. I have  question. Do you think it’s weird that so many former cast members hang around the show all the time?

Tina Fey: Oh, yeah. It just seem to be a lot of us. But I don’t know. Does it seem weird to you?

Fred Armisen: No. I think it’s great!

Tina Fey: Yeah, but doesn’t a part of you feel like, “Oh, when we come back we take up time that should go to new people on the show?”

Fred Armisen: You know what? That’s a good point. I guess we shouldn’t take up all that time that the new people could be using. You look great, by the way.

Tina Fey: Oh, thanks. You look great too.

Fred Armisen: Thank you. I’m on this whole new program. I’m walking a lot. And I’m trying to do more of regular sleep schedule. I’m drinking a lot of juice.

Tina Fey: Sounds really healthy, Fred.

Fred Armisen: It’s so important. Next time you’re in LA, I’m gonna take you to my juice guy. He’s Brazilian. He only speaks Portuguese. He does this thing where he puts a lot of the pulp in the juices so you get more of the fiber. Otherwise, you know, you’re just getting the sugar and the water. And that’s not enough. The fiber is what your body really wants. Anyway, what was I talking about? Oh, yeah. The new people. They should get more camera time. Yeah.

Tina Fey: Yeah. Oh, yes. Over here.

Anne Hathaway: Hi. [cheers and applause] So, that was actually Robert De Niro?

Tina Fey: Um, yes. Yes, it was.

Anne Hathaway: [gesturing her mind blown] Wow!

Tina Fey: Yes! Another guest, over here.

Jerry Seinfeld: Hi, yeah. Me again. How come you haven’t asked me to play anyone from the news? I literally live down the street.

Tina Fey: Yeah. That’s a great question. I don’t know why they haven’t asked you to play someone from the news. I’m not in charge of that.

Jerry Seinfeld: I mean, what about Steve Mnuchin? People say I look a little bit like him.

Tina Fey: Do you want to play Steve Mnuchin?

Jerry Seinfeld: I don’t know who he is, but if I look like him, you know? Give me something to do.

Tina Fey: Okay. Well, there’s a sign up sheet in the hall. Anybody else? Oh, yeah.

Donald Glover: Yeah. Hey. [cheers and applause] I was here a couple of weeks ago and I forgot my hat. I think I left it in the host dressing room.

Tina Fey: Oh, yeah. I think I saw that. I’ll try to get that back to you.

Donald Glover: Okay, cool. But just so you know, I have this system in place. So I’ll be able to tell if you wore it or not. So…

Tina Fey: Okay. Well, if there are no other questions, then I guess we are done.

[Tracy Morgan walks on stage] [cheers and applause]

Tracy Morgan: No, we are not, Tina. Well, if you thought I was gonna forget to surprise you on your birthday, you are crazy. On behalf of everyone here and everyone watching at home, or at a bus station, happy birthday Tina Fey.

Tina Fey: Aw, thank you Tracy. My birthday was actually yesterday though.

Tracy Morgan: No surprise, girl. If your man isn’t making you feel special today, I will. If your man isn’t giving you what you need today, I will.

Tina Fey: Okay, Tracy. You’re friends with my husband, Jeff. You worked together for a long time.

Tracy Morgan: Nah! When it’s birthday, all bets are off. You’re 60, baby. That’s gross, but I love you.

Tina Fey: I love you too, Tracy. We have a great show for you tonight. Tracy, you know who’s here?

Tracy Morgan: Who?

Tina Fey: Nicki Minaj is here.

[cheers and applause]

Tracy Morgan: Nicki Minaj is here?

Tina Fey: Yeah.

Tracy Morgan: Yeah, I’mma get that pregnant.

Tina Fey: Alright. Stick around, we’ll be right back.

Amy Schumer Monologue

Amy Schumer

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Amy Schumer.

[Amy Schumer walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

Amy Schumer: Thank you very much. Thank you so much. [someone passes her a mic] Oh, and thank you so much. It is so great to be back here hosting Saturday Night Live. Yes. It’s the best. Some of you may have heard, I got married this year. Sorry, ladies. It’s been locked down. And some people are like, “What are you gonna talk about now on your stand up? All you talked about was getting railed.” And I’m like, “Thank you.” But it’s true. I mean, I’m a little sad. I’m never gonna get a “You up?” text again. You know? Not like they were rolling in but it was nice to know someone was thinking about me. I one time got a “You up?” text and I wrote the guy back and he texted me, “Sorry. Wrong text.” I was like, “Me too. I’ll just cancel my Uber. Who cares?”

So, I did. I got married in the way that my now husband proposed was so worthless. It was such a dumb proposal. It was the morning. I was still asleep. He threw the box at me and said, “I got you this.” Like, it’s just– But that’s really– That’s a realistic proposal, you know? I feel like in all the movies and TV shows, it’s always a guy getting down on one knee and the girl’s always like, shocked. You know? Like, she’s like, “[screams] I didn’t even know you liked me.” You know, like, you’re gonna spend your life with this dude who you didn’t even know he liked you?

But, the girls I know, I’m from New York, we all got married in like mid late 30s. The guy would propose and all my friends are like, “Oh, now? Now you’re ready? That I probably can’t have kids? Great! Cool! You’re not in love. You’re tired. You’re tired. And I know all your passwords. That’s what’s happening.”

I have been a bridesmaid in six Long Island weddings. Do you understand what that means? And again, it’s like they all got married in their mid or late 30s. It’s like– you know, it’s New York. If you get engaged in 40, people are just like, “Whoa, teen bride! Get to know him. Meet this man. Go through menopause.”

And there’s something like, a little bit sad about being a bride’s maid in your late 30s. It’s like I’m always standing there in a Greecian gown with my aging cleavage, like coachella flower thing. And you’re just standing in that line of bridesmaids hoping you don’t have the biggest arm. That’s it. You’re just like, “Is my–” You’re like doing an arm workout. You’re doing a tricep press. Like, “She does.”

But my friends– People when they were younger, it used to be you get married in your 20s and you have a little spaghetti arm, you’re holding champagne like, “This is heavy.” You know? 30s, it’s just like a sea of turkey leg. You’re all just like, “Ugh!”

One of my best friends got married this summer. She’s an anthropologist and by that I just mean she goes to that store Anthropology a lot. She loves like, a lobster print on her dress. I could not afford anthropology growing up. I still, if I can get anything for free, I want it. There are things like, you could get for free. Like, a razor, your could seal from a gym or something. And they’re not like, a moisturized razor. It’s kind of just like a violent straight razor. But they’re free. They are free. Something else you can get for free. Tampons. Honestly, someone will always hook you up. You’ll never have to just like, bleed out. Someone will– A sister will be there for you. It’s true. We get each other’s backs. We do. And the way we ask each other, it’s not even like– you don’t even have to say the word. It’s more like a rhythm and motion. You look around like you’re about to talk rudely about somebody at a family reunion. And you go, [in soft voice] “Does anyone have like, the… huh?” You don’t even say the last words. You’re just, “Ya. Ya. [gibberish] ?” We say it like that because we’ve been taught to be ashamed of being born human women because men, I think you think that we just get our periods every month but we choose to get it. We go, “I’m bored. What should I do? I think I’ll bleed. Just bleed for a couple of days.” So, we whisper it coz we’re embarrassed.

So, I asked this group of girls. I was at a gym locker room the other day. And I was like, “Does anyone [gibberish] ?” And this girl was like, “Oh, yeah. I do. What size?” And I’m like– Of course I know there’s different sizes of tampons. But I’ve never been confronted with that question. Like, “Oh, yeah. What’s the circumference of your vagina hole? Is that– Do you have a big hole? Or is it a smaller?” And then everyone in the locker room kind of turns to see my answer. And I’m like, “How about, do you have something in a gaping? How about that? Gaping days? Is that? Just something that could plug a small hole in a Kayak. Is that in your Louis Vuitton?”

This one’s just for the ladies. Ladies, remember how we were raised with the illusion of equality, right? That was our Santa Claus, right? Wasn’t that funny? Oh. When we were little girls, they were like, [nagging voice] “You can do anything.” And we were like, “Yayy!” And then we got older and they were like, “Psyche!” And we were like, “You guys, you got us again. This sucks. This sucks.”

I think something that we can do is to just– if your mother raised these boys to be a little nicer at a young age, I really think that’s a good idea. Let’s think about it. When you’re a little girl, a little boy is men to you or he teases you. What does everyone say? “He likes you.” Right? And you’re like, “Okay, great.” You’re like, “He knocked my books out of my hands.” “Valentine.” “He pushed me on the floor.” “You’re going to prom.” Okay, great.

You guys are such a great crowd. I really hope, if you haven’t already, you see my film “I Feel Pretty.” [cheers and applause] Thank you. I’m so proud of it. But, if you see it, bring tissues… coz you’re gonna want to masturbate. I look so good in this movie.

You’re such a great crowd. We’ve got a great show tonight. Kacey Musgraves is here. So, stick around, we’ll be right back.

Donald Glover Monologue

Donald Glover

Kyle Mooney

Kenan Thompson

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Donald Glover.

[Donald Glover walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

Donald Glover: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you guys, so much. Thank you. I’m really excited to be hosting Saturday Night Live. And the answer to the question everyone’s asking is, “Yes, I am Dani Glover’s father.” I used to live in New York and it’s so great to be back here. Specially now that I’m rich. You know, seriously. I recommend it. I was poor here and it’s way better when you’re rich. But it’s truly is an honor to be hosting SNL, and you know, instead of just auditioning for it which I did twice. That’s not a joke. I just still pissed. But it all kind of worked out for me. I was on a show called “Community.” [cheers and applause] And I play Lando Calrissian in the new Star Wars movie solo. [cheers and applause] And if you’re black, I met Atlanta and Redbone. [cheers and applause] Lot of black people in here.

I’m an actor, a writer and a singer. Some people have described me as a triple threat. But I kind of like to call myself just a threat. Not to bring up my audition because I’m not hung up on it. I still don’t know why I didn’t get the job. I’m good at lot of things like, music. Can I get a 180 tempo, something jazzy in the key of D? Hit it.

[The band playing music]

There we go. That feels good. Let’s take a walk, shall we?

[Donald Glover walks out of the stage.] [singing] I really can do anything

[walks to Kyle Mooney] Hey, what’s going on, Kyle?

Kyle: Hey, Donald. Not much.

Donald Glover: Ah! Hey, let me ask you a question. What did you do for you audition?

Kyle: Bunch of characters. [showing the skateboard] Then I did this skateboarding a bit.

Donald Glover: Oh, you skateboard?

Kyle: Yeah. Yeah.

Donald Glover: Can I have the skateboard? I can do that too. You know?

Kyle: No problem, yeah. Go for it.

Donald Glover: You mind if I do it?

Kyle: Please.

Donald Glover: Awesome.

[Donald Glover tries the skateboard. He falls down badly. He stands suddenly.]

That’s called an ollie.

Kyle: Oh, my god. Are you okay?

Donald Glover: Yeah. I’m great. I’ll see you later.

Kyle: Are you sure?

[Donald Glover just walks way]

Donald Glover: [singing] I really can do anything

[Donald Glover walks to Kenan Thompson. He is cooking something.]

Hey, Kenan. How are you?

Kenan: Hey. Good, man.

Donald Glover: So, what did you do for your audition?

Kenan: Do you have any idea how long ago that was? I have no idea.

Donald Glover: Are you doing your chef character? Can I? I can do that too.

[Donald Glover picks up a cup, takes whatever Kenan is cooking in it and drinks it.]

Kenan: No, no. I’m sorry. I was cleaning rags in there. You gonna get sick, man.

Donald Glover: Oh! Nah, dude. I’ve got an iron stomach. All I ate is hotdogs backstage. I can really do anything.

[Donald Glover walks away] [singing] I really can do anything

[Donald Glover walks to a guy who is fixing things at the ceiling with a long stick]

Hey, that looks– you mind if I give it a little– I can do that. [Donald Glover takes the stick] [Donald Glover burps] Oh! Got a little tummy trouble. Let me try this a little bit. [Donald Glover tries to do what the guys was doing. All the lights turn off.] Oh! That fixed it.

[Donald Glover walks away to Cecily Strong and Beck Bennett]

Hey, Cecily, Beck. What did you guys do for your audition?

Beck: Oh, well, I’m very glad you asked.

Donald Glover: Oh, I do not want to know.

[Donald Glover walks away]

Cecily: Oh, he’s obsessed with his audition.

Beck: I know. He keeps showing us his audition tape and he won’t watch mine.

Cecily: Alright. He keeps bragging that he can play clarinet. What even is that?

Beck: Yeah. He thinks being here this week will help him get on SNL.

Cecily: He’s hosting SNL.

Beck: Oh, have I shown you my audition tape?

Cecily: Beck?

[Cut to Donald Glover back on the stage. He is carrying a clarinet.]

Donald Glover: Did I mention I can play clarinet?

[Donald Glover just screams into the clarinet. The clarinet is not playing at all.]

You know, it actually went better at my audition. We’ve got a great show for you tonight. Childish Gambino is here. So, stick around and we’ll be right back.

John Mulaney Stand-Up Monologue

John Mulaney

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, John Mulaney.

[John Mulaney walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

John Mulaney: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. It is great to be here hosting Saturday Night Live. [cheers and applause] That is a very weird thing to say. I was a writer here for five years. Some of the best years of my life. And to be hosting here to just surreal. I mean, I used to write monologues for the host. Now, I’m up here, I get to give the monologue. I get to introduce the musical guest. I mean that’s incredible. The best intro by the way I ever saw of SNL host with musical guest was sir Patrick Stewart, okay? Sir Patrick Stewart was introducing the musical guest and this is how he did it. He went, “Ladies and gentlemen, Salt and [loud voice] Pepper!” Like he was surprised by pepper. Like, minutes before, they’ve been like, “We can’t find Pepper anywhere,” and he was like, “If we must go on with Salt alone, we will go on with Salt alone.” And they were like, “Three, two, one,” and pepper burst through the door and he’s like, “Ladies and gentlemen, Salt and what’s this? [loud voice] Pepper!” It was the best time. It was an innocent time, you know? When I was younger, I thought that the world was going to be simple and nice. But now, at the end of my life, I’m not so sure. I’m getting grumpy which I don’t like. Like, I don’t like any new songs. I don’t like any new songs. Coz every new song is about how tonight is the night and how we only have tonight. That’s the message in 90% of songs. That’s such 19 year old garbage. I wanna write songs for people in their 30s called, “Tonight’s no good. How about Wednesday? Oh, you’re in Houston on Wednesday? Oh, okay. Well, let’s not just see each other for six months and it doesn’t matter at all.”

I tried to stay polite. I’m overly polite apparently, my wife says. And when my wife and I walk down the street, we have totally different styles. When she walks down the street, she does not care what anyone thinks about her in any situation. She’s my hero. When I walk down the street, I want everyone to like me so much, it’s exhausting. My wife said that walking around with me was like walking around with someone who’s running for mayor of nothing.

People ask us if we’re gonna have children. We don’t have any. And so, we say no. They go, “Never? You’re never gonna have kids?” And I’m like, “I don’t know never. Look, 14 years ago, I smoked cocaine the night before my college graduation. Now I’m afraid to get a flu shot. People change.”

Strange, the passage of time. I like old fashion things. You know? I was in Connecticut recently doing white people stuff and– really, okay. And one day in Connecticut, it doesn’t matter why but I was sitting in a gazebo. There was a plaque on the gazebo and it said, “This gazebo was built by the town in 1863.” That’s in the middle of the civil war. And they built a gazebo. How did that town meeting work? They were like, “Alright, everyone. First order of business, we have all the telegrams from the Gettysburg with the war dead. Let’s see here. Okay, everyone’s husband and brother and everyone died. Okay. Josiah, you had something?” “Yes, I do. How’d you like to be indoors and out of doors all at once? Ever walking through the park with your betrothed and it starts to rain but you still wanna hold hands? Well, may I introduce you to and my condolences again to everyone, the gazebo!” Building a gazebo during the civil war would be like doing standup comedy now.

They used to do weird slow leisurely activities coz they didn’t have enough to do. So, they had to fill the dead. Back then you woke up and you were like, “Oh god, it’s the old days. I gotta wear all those layers. We got to think of some weird slow activities to fill the time,” and they did. Have you ever seen an old film from the past of people like, waving at a ship? [John Mulaney is waving his hand like he’s waving to ship that’s already gone] What if I called you now to do that? “Hey, what are you doing Monday? There’s a Norwegian Cruise line leaving for Martinique at around 10 AM. Here’s my plan. We get very dressed up including hats and we wave handkerchiefs at the ship till it disappears over the horizon. No, I don’t know anyone on the ship.”

Everything’s fast now and it’s totally unreasonable. The world is run by computers. The world is run by robots. And sometimes they ask us if we’re a robot just coz we’re trying to log on and look at our own stuff. Multiple times a day. [acting like he’s logging into his computer] May I see my stuff please? “Umm. I smell a robot. Bro. Prove! Prove! Prove you’re not a robot. Look at these curvy letters, much curvier than most letters wouldn’t you say? No robot could ever read these. You look mortal if it be. You look and you type what you think you see. Is it an E? Or is it a 3? That’s up to you. The passwords have passed, you’ve correctly guessed. But now it’s time for the robot test. I devised a question no robot could ever answer. Which of these pictures does not have a stop sign in it?” What? You spend a lot of your day telling a robot that you’re not a robot. Think about that for two minutes and tell me you don’t want to walk into the ocean.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. Jack White is here. Stick around. We’ll be right back.

Chadwick Boseman Monologue

Chadwick Boseman

Kenan Thompson

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Chadwick Boseman.

[Chadwick Boseman walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

Chadwick Boseman: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. I’m so happy to be hosting Saturday Night Live only two months after Black Panther came out. [cheers and applause] But it’s still before the Avengers, so we’re not completely late.

You know, it was actually kind of tough hosting because SNL has already done a bunch of sketches about Black Panther. So, there is really bad ideas left. The writers were like, “What about a talk show called ‘Wake Up Wakanda?’ Or a sketch where Black Panther has sex with Leslie Jones?” And that was Leslie Jones’ idea. So it’s tough and it’s not fair. I men Sterling K. Brown got to do a Black Panther sketch before me and he dies in the first scene of the movie. I would say spoiler alert, but again the movie has been out for two months people.

One weird thing I’ve experienced since the movie came out, it’s people asking if I wanna run for president. That’s because I play a world leader in the movie, they think I wanna be a leader of the free world, but who wants that job? Why would I go for being a serious actor to do in reality TV? [applause]

And there’s still some people who can’t grasp that it’s a superhero movie. They’re like, “You’re doing Black Panther all wrong. You should have beret and a black leather jacket.” I’m like, “Ay! Ay! That’s a different type of Black Panther, man.” And it’s not like I don’t know history. I portrayed Jackie Robinson, James Brown. [cheers and applause] And Thurgood Marshall. Basically every black historical figure except Rachel Dolazer, who coming to think of it, me playing a white woman pretending to play a black woman might not be a bad idea for Oscar. But somehow, Black Panther has become historical figure too. First black superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we broke new ground. And I hope that maybe we’ve inspired the new generation of black actors and film makers–

[Kenan Thompson walks in wearing Panthro costume. The costume is very funny looking.]

Kenan Thompson: Wow! You broke new ground, huh? I’m not so sure about that. Ha-ha-ha.

Chadwick Boseman: Pahthro from Thundercats?

Kenan Thompson: [showing his nunchucks] Yeah, that’s right. You must be the Black Panther style superhero who has space age technology. Hmm, where have I heard that one before? Oh, right. From when it was me.

Chadwick Boseman: Alright. Alright. Panthro, Black Panther was created in 1966. Thundercats are from the 80s.

Kenan Thompson: No. Actually, Thundercats are from Thundera, the cat planet where cats lived in harmony until Mumra made it explode. Not that you care.

Chadwick Boseman: Panthro!

Kenan Thompson: Come on, dude. I know you guys are doing a sequel. Hook a brother up. It’s hard out there for a black space cat with a spiky suspenders.

Chadwick Boseman: Hey man, I gotta ask. Is this another one of the bad ideas that the writers had that I’m in right now?

Kenan Thompson: No. I actually heard that this was Kenan Thompson’s idea. And I’m told that he stands by it. 15 seasons, baby.

[Kenan Thompson winks and leaves the stage] [cheers and applause]

Chadwick Boseman: You know, I got a band behind me right now. [Talking like Lenny Kravitz] I can’t get off this stage without giving you just a little Lenny. I’m about to do my thing. Hit it!

[band playing music. Chadwick Boseman does the dance]

We got a great show for you tonight. Cardi B is here. So, stick around. We’re gonna be right back.

Sterling K. Brown Monologue

Sterling K. Brown

Leslie Jones

[Starts with SNL monologue intro] [Cut to SNL stage] [Band is playing music]

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, Sterling K. Brown.

[Sterling K. Brown walks in and to the stage] [cheers and applause]

Sterling K. Brown: Yeah. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. I’m very excited to be here hosting Saturday Night Live. My name is Sterling K. Brown. [cheers and applause] Thank you. And K stands for Katheline. Now, most of you probably know me from “This Is Us.” [cheers and applause] Thank you. Which is the saddest thing you can watch on TV other than the news. You know, I actually have reputation for being pretty sensitive. And what can I say? I’m an actor. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. But I promise tonight that I won’t get overwhelmed because, um– [starts getting emotional]

It’s SNL, you know? I mean, how lucky am I to be here? And on top of everything I’ve gotten to do in the last few years, it’s just like the icing on the cake. But, whoo! Get it together, Sterling Katheline. It’s all good.

But everyone has been really supportive. So, if you’re fan of “This Is Us”, be sure to tune in to the after show, “That Was Them.” Or a spinoff where all black family adopts a white child called, “This Us”. It’s really beautiful. You know, the whole cast of “This Is Us” is so close. It feels like a real family, you know? Mandy, Milo, and my mama, [getting emotional] and my papa.

[yelling] No! No, no, no. Come on Brown! Come on, baby. Whoof! Hosting SNL is a dream come true. It’s such a whirlwind and I’ve been happy just to be along for the ride and to the cast, thank you for making me feel at home. Like, my first day here, Kenan comes up to me. I mean, Kenan Thompson! He is seriously like one of my– [getting emotional] He’s like one of my heroes. You know. And he said, “I got this idea where we play sidemen twins that are attached at the butts.” I mean Kenan brought that idea to me. You know? [sobbing] I’m so honored. I’m so– I’m so blessed. Man! I’m sorry. Just give me a second, please.

[Leslie Jones walks in]

Leslie Jones: Starling, we have got to get on with the show. This is the thing.

[cheers and applause]

Sterling K. Brown: Leslie Jones, everybody. Queen!

Leslie Jones: Yeah, that don’t work with me. I’m a grown ass woman. Um, Sterling, you gotta stop crying. You are ruining you for me.

Sterling K. Brown: Yeah. I know. I know. But Leslie, I just got to say, you are such an inspiration.

Leslie Jones: Okay.

Sterling K. Brown: I mean, just think of how far you’ve come.

Leslie Jones: Okay.

Sterling K. Brown: Ay! You know, you are the funniest person on this show!

Leslie Jones: [excited] I mean, that’s what I’ve been saying.

Sterling K. Brown: You the best!

Leslie Jones: You the best!

Sterling K. Brown: I promise I’ll keep it together, you know?

Leslie Jones: Yes! Keep it together.

Sterling K. Brown: Because we got a great show for you tonight! James Bay is here. So, stick around. We’ll be right back.
