Newest SNL Castmember Already Well-Versed in Political Humor
Meet Michaela Watkins, newest member of the SNL troupe, doing her Arianna impression. And ha! It’s pretty good. Especially how she incorporated her dorm room or whatever into her audition tape.
But if Lorne Michaels was going the political route for the rest of the season and trying to keep cashing in on the post-election viewership, why not hire a guy who looks reasonably like Obama? Not that there is anything wrong with Fred Armisen, but he just plays it so straight, and it brings up that issue of how do you make fun of a guy who represents real change and hope for our country? Blah bah. You guys know what I’m talking about.But hey, at least Michaela will make a good Michelle Obama? And her Arianna is still way better than Tracy Ullman’s.
