In case you’ve missed it, Tina Fey has been appearing each week on Saturday Night Live as Sarah Palin. The first installment imagined a press conference with Hilary Clinton, the second parodied her funny-to-start-with interview with Katie Couric (including direct quotes better than the SNL writing staff could have created), and this week the VP debates were naturally the topic.
Word is there will be a new Fey-as-Palin sketch to kick off the show each week until the election. This can only get funnier.
Katie Couric interview:
Here’s the Palin-Hilary sketch that kicked this series off:
UPDATE 1: Doppelgangers danced and worlds collided on Saturday eve October 19th, as Sarah Palin took Alec Baldwin’s arm, shared the same stage with Tina Fey, and stoodher ground in front of a lot of parody of herself on Saturday Night Live.
UPDATE 2: The Palin parodies continue as Saturday Night Live (which sometimes
happens on Thursdays it turns out) brings back Will Ferrell as George W Bush to endorse the Fey-McCain ticket….
UPDATE 3: In a final appearance on Saturday Night Live prior to the election, Tina
Fey stood next to the real John McCain to hock mock QVC campaign-ware on SNL.
