The Wicker Breakdown:
This week's show started with a segment called Clinton Attack Ad that was a parody of Hillary’s attacked ad against Obama that questioned how he would handle a call that came in at three o'clock in the AM. In this parody ad, they showed that Obama would have to call Hillary if he actually was to answer this hypothetical early morning call. Of course, with this being the opening sketch, it eventually led to the announcement of, “Live from New York…”
Amy Adams then officially opened the show with a monolog about how she has really been enjoying the week before inviting Kristen Wiig out to join her on stage because she felt that too looked so similar that they could be sisters if not twins. The two then sang an adorable song about how they loathe one another based on these similar looks since it’s only led to more competition when auditioning for gigs.
Playing off the theme that Amy Adams and Kristen Wiig look so similar, Mirror Image had Kristen Wiig as Amy Adam’s fat twin sister so that the two could try to pull off a scam and attempted to pass themselves off as one student when trying to enroll at a new school.
Couples Therapy had Will Forte as a newlywed to a refugee played by Amy Poehler. The mail-order couple was having marital struggles over the fact that Will wouldn’t fully sign the immigration papers that would help Amy Poehler’s character feel safe in not just the relationship but would ease her mind from getting deported back to where she was trying to escape. Meanwhile, Amy Adam’s as the therapist sided with Will and treated like the issues being experienced due to this scam of a marriage was all Amy Poehler’s fault.
We then got another SNL Digital Short where Andy Samberg played a rich Batman-like superhero who sang about cleaning up the city before getting pummeled by Jason Sudeikis who played a purse-snatching-thief when Andy tried to confront him over his latest crime.
Fierce: The Hot Mess Make-Over Show had Amy Poehler as a Project Runway contestant who now had her own show fashion show where she would makeover hot messes while speaking in an endless stream of catchphrases.
Vampire Weekend then took to the stage to perform A-Punk.
Once again, Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers gave us the news. This week, Will Forte returned as Tim Calhoun to announce that he’s still seeking the Democratic nomination for the Presidential race. Kenan Thompson also stopped by as Jean K. Jean who was a Def-Jam comedian from France their to tell a couple of jokes as a comedy ambassador.
Dr. Uncle Jimmy's Smokehouse And Outpatient Surgical Facility was a fake as for this half barbecue joint/half medical facility run by Will Forte as Dr. Uncle Jimmy.
Roger Clemens Presents had Jason Sudeikis as the titular baseball player who shared the play that he’d written that demonstrated the results of abolishing steroids from professional baseball, highlighting Clemens’s claims that the whole league benefited by having the players all hopped up on the juice.
The Tookie Styles Show had Kenan Thompson as Tookie who announced that his early ‘80s cable access show was now on DVD and featured some of the clips of political dignitaries dancing to several of Tookie’s hip-hop hits, while also nearly getting assassinated while grooving out on the dance floor.
Vampire Weekend then returned to the stage to perform M79.
Celebrations had Amy Adams, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, and Casey Wilson as a quartet of desperate women who performed a single dance move at varying speeds to different tempo songs, in an effort to impress some of the men who were watching them from the bar.
Finally, Amy Adams closed the show by thanking the audience and saying her goodnights.
