Jonah Hill—Oscar-nominated actor—hosted Saturday Night Live last night for the second time, and he addressed his good fortune during his monologue. And actual Oscar winner and eight-time SNL host Tom Hanks stopped by to explain how tough life was after winning. Twice.
The cold open featured Taram Killan as Rush Limbaugh, who bragged about new advertisers like the Syrian Tourism Board, and other highlights included Bill Hader's Stefon giving spring tips (and Hader broke down, cracking up), Kristen Wiig as Paula Deen, Hill reprising the bit about the 6-year-old going to Benihana's with his dad, and a weirdly fun sketch about Coolio, which is not online. Other bits included Andy Samberg's attempt to play Sarah Palin, a scientist who had sex with a monkey to get it to talk and Liza Minnelli turning on a lamp. The Shins were the musical guest.
The next new episode will be on April 7, with host Sofia Vergara and musical guest British-Irish boy band One Direction (this is their hit).
