Kristen Wiig is Kathie Lee Gifford


SNL funny woman Kristen Wiig gives another spot-on impersonation of Today Show co-host Kathie Lee Gifford on this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live.

Michaela Watkins takes on the role of Gifford‘s co-host Hoda Kotb. The SNL host for the evening, actor Bradley Cooper, joins the pair for the second half of the sketch as a catwalk expert. Watch the hilarious clip below!

    I was turning channels and came across this just in time. It was very funny, she had kathie lee down.

    Oh, oh it’s a ho down! I just cracked up!!

    I wonder if NBC and Kathie Lee got the message. KLG is such a bore.

    I’m sorry but she grates my nerves so bad. She is the worst part of SNL to me. She has ruined quite a few skits that would have otherwise been great. All of her characters are pretty much the same.

    The only one I remember of her being really good was with Doogie Howser a couple of weeks ago where they were working phones with the big nails. It was him that made it really funny though.

    Hilariousity @ its best!!!

    KLG is so annoying.. but Wiig nails this one.

    this sketch was stupid but Kristen Wiig is definatley the only funny person left of the show now. Andy Samberg is only funny when he does those music videos.

    Love the underrated Kristen Wiig!

    But seriously, I think they messed up at the end of the sketch. I’m not sure if that light (which sounded really heavy!) was suppose to hit fake Kathy or not because Kristen had a confusion face on her and fake Rhoda’s next line indicated that she should’ve been hit.

  • Amy

    She really is the greatest modern talent for impressions. Down to the shake of the head!

  • sasha

  • Custom T

    Kathy Lee is almost worse than Elisabeth Hasselback.

    kristen wiig is greeeat… SNL is a bad venue and her kathie lee is the funniest thing ive seen on it… reminds me of will ferrel and sheri o’terri on morning latte.. another classic… the Hoda pun jokes need to get a little more credit those are the classic stupid jokes on these Today Shows

    PS: Andy Samberg isnt that funny if hes gonna save SNL its not happening they need some new cast members… bill hader is ok i guess, they need Seth Rogen or someone

  • Nicholai

    PPS: the most recent one with zack galifianakis is even funnier.. the little yodling voice she throws in their “franzia box of wiiine!” i was dying… with the funny faces and tongue stick out…i mean come on thats awesome.. that woman is funny.. she could be like tina fey coming out of SNL and making her own shows and movies.. and let me say this again the rest of SNL cast is below average with little creativity.. what happened to the golden years of great skits????
