Normally Saturday Night Live saves the really weird, really funny stuff for the end of the show, but this week they gave the post-monologue slot something really big and bizarre: the 85 annual Westminster Daddy Show, which was moderated by Matt Damon and Kate McKinnon. It's exactly what you think:
The sketch is a showpiece for physical comedy from the cast, as Beck Bennett, Alex Moffatt and Chris Redd somehow portray the walks and behavior of the "West Palm Golf Daddy", the "Berkeley Tweedy Daddy" and the Wall Street Business Daddy "With dog show classics like" The dog, who is obviously unsure why a judge pokes his teeth, but just somehow goes along with it "and" Bartleby the dog ". Melissa Villaseñor's appearance Daddy coach is a superb silent performer – you know exactly what a nightmare her character is without a single line of dialogue – and Kenan Thompson packs a whole universe into different versions of the line "Tweedy Daddy, here here".
But there is only one way in which a Saturday Night Live sketch about the Westminster Daddy Show aired in the week hosted by Matt Damon could end: with Matt Damon a-dancin & # 39; and a-prancin & # 39; all the way to Westminster Daddy Best in Show Wreath. Like The informant! proved that no one has a better vacant smile than Matt Damon, and he makes good use of it here and bounces up and down in delight as he wins the highest honor any daddy can achieve: a fun Saturday Night Live Sketch that plays off its strengths as a performer. Amuse us, Daddy.
