You know it’s a damn good episode of Saturday Night Live when there’s so much worthy material, that even some truly funny sketches can’t even make it past the dress rehearsals. Case in point: Zach Galifianakis‘ stellar episode from this weekend, which had top-notch sketches like “Game of Game of Thrones“, the fake New Balance commercial, and the brilliant “Darrell’s House”.
NBC has since released the “Kanish” sketch, which didn’t make it to air on Saturday night. While a little too long and tapping into a very specific sense of humor for people who get a kick out of dead-on Judd Hirsch imitations, fictitious ’70s detective shows, and poorly-timed freeze frames (freeze!), it’s pretty universally accepted that anything Galifianakis and Bill Hader do – especially together – is comedy gold. Plus, there’s some sweet hair, a near-break from Taram Killam, and hilariously-named fake episode titles like “Junkie See, Junkie Do” and “Dope Re Mi.”
