Ryan Gosling served as host for the season premiere of SNL and took full advantage of milking the fact that following the pandemonium around La La Land, people claimed that he quote on quote saved jazz. Naturally the fact that people were saying this sparked controversy because A) jazz hasn’t gone anywhere and B) it was created by black people, so it became a little problematic for people to credit a white dude from Canada for its return. And as you’ll see in his opening monologue, there was no way Ryan was going to host SNL without poking some fun at the ridiculousness of the controversy.
Even Ryan had a hard time holding back his laughter during the bit, so luckily his pal Emma Stone swooped in to help him out.
Along with the La La Land nods, Alec Baldwin also returned to reprise his Emmy award winning performance as Donald Trump taking a call with the mayor of Puerto Rico.
Then Kate McKinnon joined in playing Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a little pow wow with the Donald.
Unfortunately in this case, comedy is coming from a very true and dark place. But on a lighter note, there was a sketch where Ryan lost his mind over the random fact that the Avatar title’s font was papyrus.
Seriously there were so many golden moments during Saturday’s show, it would take five years to recount them all but one of my favorite things when I’m watching stand-up comedy or improve or anything like that is when the comics can’t hold it together and start laughing at their own jokes. And I think it’s safe to say that Kate Mckinnon was a hero for all warm blooded humans everywhere when she took full advantage of coping Ryan Gosling’s beautiful booty.
If you keep watching she sticks her face in it, and at that point I got so happy for her I almost cried. But unfortunately the man is taken and he melted the hearts of every girl on her period when he thanked his beautiful wife Eva Mendes and their kids during his sign off.
