Nobody has actually rather mastered the musical host ambiance the very same method Kenan Thompson has on Saturday Night Live. In a brand-new sketch called “Summer Gig” from the Season 47 ending with host Natasha Lyonne and musical visitor Japanese Breakfast, we got to see what would take place if he was a singer in a band at an occasion with a number of incidents.

Much of the mayhem begins when 2 guests, played by Bowen Yang and Chloe Fineman, are misinterpreted for a couple. The set expose that Yangs character is gay while Finemans character is his psychic. The duo likewise reveals that they invested an overall of 4 dollars for the shows tickets prior to Fineman gets a message from the spirit world.


As Thompsons character is attempting to keep the program going, he rapidly finds out that Fineman has responses for him on why his roomie, proprietor, and bandmate – Lyonne – was sobbing in the automobile when he saw her today. What actually is a musical set if there isnt a psychic there to inform you about the future that youre attempting to conceal from? Fineman reveals that Lyonnes character is concealing something from him, and ultimately, the space finds out that her ex-boyfriend, Ronald, is at their home and going to burn all of Thompsons clothing believing that theyre hers.

While basic in formula, the sketch stands out by playing out in a totally unforeseeable method with the story taking unforeseen, and maybe unreasonable, turns. Lyonnes character, who is a harmonica gamer, is seen attempting to continue with the program while Thompsons character has little regard for limits in the extremely public setting. When called out by fellow bandmate, played by Kyle Mooney, Thompson states that he “cares about her emotional state.”

For most of the sketch, the other bandmates, played by Mooney and Cecily Strong, remain in the background motivating the story to go on. Strong just gets a couple of words in this sketch, however her dancing existence definitely adds to a couple of laughs in the sketch. By the end of the sketch, it appears that Thompsons clothing, including his valued Bottega Veneta knock-off fanny pack, are gone, specifically after he prompts Lyonne to call her ex who she then prompts to proceed and burn the clothing.

While not the best sketch of the night, the simple chemistry in between Lyonne and Thompson is a strong selling point. Take a look at the complete sketch listed below:
