'Saturday Night Live' Stars Who Broke Character During Sketches

There’s a lot of pressure when it comes to putting on an episode of Saturday Night Live: it is live, after all.

As a result, cast members and hosts need to stick to their scripts closely in order to keep the sketches flowing smoothly – and they also need to keep a straight face as they fly through dozens of jokes every night. But what happens when they…can’t?

Time and time again, we’ve watched over the years as the cast of SNL, and myriad celebrity hosts, absolutely lose it after cracking up at one of the jokes they’ve said, the sheer absurdity of the sketch, or something entirely unexpected happening in a scene. In most cases, it only makes the sketch even more hilarious for the audience watching at home.

We’ve rounded up some of the best moments where the SNL stars have absolutely lost it during a sketch. Some stars have also been banned from the show!

Check out all the times Saturday Night Live stars broke character inside…

The 'Barb & Star' Reunion at Critics Choice 2022 Is Everything We Wished For!

The stars of Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar reunited on stage at the 2022 Critics Choice Awards and it was everything we could have wished for!

Kristen Wiig, Annie Mumolo, and Jamie Dornan presented together on stage on Sunday night (March 13) at Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

When Jamie showed up on stage with Kristen and Annie, they appeared surprised that he was in attendance and told him that they have a seat for him at their table.

“I’m actually here for a different movie,” Jamie informed them, to which they were surprised to learn he’s done another film.

Jamie replied, “I’ve actually been doing TV and film for a long time and I’m actually nominated for another movie that I did tonight. It’s called Belfast.”

Kristen and Annie then confused Belfast for Slimfast shakes and by the end of the bit, Jamie was joking that he’s working on a biopic of the founder of Slimfast!

FYI: Kristen is wearing a Rodarte dress, Femme LA shoes, and Prasi jewelry. Jamie is wearing Valentino with an Omega watch. Annie is wearing a Cinq à Sept dress.
