To be honest, we’re surprised it took NBC’s Saturday Night Live this long to figure out a way to bring the comedy each week. At first we thought, why not throw together a few “Best Of” episodes featuring our favorite SNL cast members to pass the time? But alas, that didn’t happen.
Either way, this weekend the long time sketch-comedy show made a comeback with a special “At-Home” episode with an at-home monologue by Tom Hanks! We’ve compiled some of our favorites sketches from the episode below:
Tom Hanks At-Home Monologue – Tom Hanks opens a special Saturday Night Live as host from his home, where he talks about recovering from COVID-19, does an “audience” Q&A and pays tribute to essential workers.
