The 30 Funniest SNL Skits Ever

Best Life Logo By Bob Larkin of Best Life | Slide 1 of 31: Can you believe that Saturday Night Live has been on the air for 43 years? This is a comedy show that your dad and possibly even your grandfather watched in his youth. Talk about multi-generational programming. Could any other show keep a jittery public grounded from President Nixon to President Trump, satirize the culture so perfectly from the swinging seventies to the Internet-addicted aughts? People can complain all they want that the show “isn’t as good as it used to be” or “should’ve been cancelled years ago.” Not watching SNL is like pretending you don’t care about Facebook. Your feelings of intellectual superiority have kept you out of the larger cultural conversation.Picking just 30 sketches to represent SNL’s best was more difficult than we thought. We left off at least two dozen skits that probably deserved to be included. You might disagree with some of our choices. And that’s a good thing! That just demonstrates how much great material the Not Ready For Prime Time Players have produced over the years. For more laughs, check out these 50 Puns So Bad They’re Actually Funny.
