Louie Is Lincoln: Our 8 Favorite Moments from Louis C.K. Hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’

By 11.04.12

Cold Open: Bloomberg's Hurricane Sandy Press Conference

Fred Armisen plays New York City's mayor while Cecily Strong signs as one of Hurricane Sandy's unsung heroes, Lydia Callis. Bobby Moynihan steps in as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Man, white people really do love “Homeland.” 


Lincoln: “Louie' recut with President Lincoln. Historically hilarious. A++.

A digital short that might be the best SNL sketch in years. 


Louis C.K.'s SNL Monologue 

Come on, you knew Louis C.K.'s monologue would be a standup routine. In fact, I just heard him go through this bit two weeks ago live at New York's City Center. If you're a C.K. fan who hasn't had a chance to see him live in a while, it will be very fresh and new for you. 


“Fox and Friends”

Jason Sudeikis as Donald Trump, the world's biggest troll, is rather funny. Louis C.K. plays a FEMA spokesperson. Try to read as many of the “facts” on the fact-checker scroll as possible at the end of the sketch.


“Weekend Update”

Personally, I was really hoping Sefan would make an appearence to tell us about nightlife in blackout, post-Sandy NYC, but that didn't happen. Instead, we get Mitt Romney (inevitable just before a Presidential Election) and my new favorite Weekend Update character: Cecily Strong's “Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started a Conversation With at a Party.” If you like making fun of people who call themselves “social media gurus,” Aidy Bryant as a social media guru was funny too.

“Hotel Fees”

The concept is stupidly simple, yet C.K. in character as a dick hotel front-desk person gets the laughs. 

“Last Call”

Louis C.K. gets drunk, hooks up. 


Australian Screen Legends

Who doesn't like jokes about Australia's weird sense of humor? One of the weaker sketches of the evening, but still gets a few laughs.
