It was Mother’s Day weekend and SNL pulled out all the stops. With Emma Thompson hosting for the first time, there was an air of class to the occasionally low-brow sketch show. Emma Thompson intro’d the show with a heartfelt monologue about mothers, which turned into a trio-logue when SNL alumni Tina Fey and Amy Poehler joined Thompson to wax-comedic about motherhood, and being mothers.
And they weren’t the only mothers to guest star on the show. During one of his sit-down stand-up routines on Weekend Update, Pete Davidson brought his mom/roommate on, as his Mother’s Day gift to her. Oh, and during his bit, he shouted out Jon Hamm as a potential suitor for his mother. And wouldn’t you know it, Jon was with the cast, next to Pete’s mom during the credit role.
Say hi to your new dad, Pete.
And who’s Jon Hamm hugging there? Why, of course that would be the back of one of the Jonas Brothers’ heads! They were musical guest on the show, but that didn’t confine them to just the band stand. They’ve been known to do a little acting on the side. And they did a little acting on this side this weekend, too – appearing in the Judge Court sketch. And doing a bang-up job, the little cuties.
All-in-all a snappy episode. Just one more for the road; next weekend’s Paul Rudd-hosted episode is the season finale, and for that one they go all out! So don’t miss it or you’ll be regretting your choice until the show comes back, all the ways away in September 2019.
