The Top 10 Moments from SNL’s 40th Anniversary Special

1. SNL 40 Digital Short

This was, without a doubt, the segment that made me laugh the hardest. I’ve always been a fan of SNL’s Digital Shorts but this one is by far the best. It took what is the cardinal sin of live performing, breaking character, and turned it into a massive song celebrating it. Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler honestly make a great team. Everything they said is true too. When people break character, it makes a skit funnier. We love watching the cast members mess up. Putting all those moments in the spotlight was a great way to prove that, yeah, it really isn’t that bad.

Putting extra attention on Jimmy Fallon and Horatio Sanz was amazing too. Clearly, not even the cast members can ignore that these two guys broke a lot. Several clips aired back to back of them absolutely losing it. Breaking may be funny, but it does get old when it happens way too often. Fallon and Sanz easily jumped into that “way too often category.” It’s why I don’t consider either of them to be SNL’s top cast members. Fallon fortunately found success as a talk show host, but I have no idea what Sanz is up to. Probably still laughing at his own jokes.
