'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…

Kenan Thompson's Daughters Make Rare Public Appearance to Support Him at Walk of Fame Ceremony!

Kenan Thompson just received a huge honor!

The 44-year-old Saturday Night Live actor was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday afternoon (August 11) in Los Angeles.

Kenan received support from former SNL co-star Leslie Jones, former SNL writer J.B. Smoove, and his former All That and Good Burger castmate Josh Server.

Also in attendance at the event were Kenan‘s two daughters – eight-year-old Georgia and four-year-old Gianna. These are his two kids with his estranged wife Christina Evangeline.

“I never thought any of this would be possible. I just wanted to act and entertain and have a good time and put smiles on my family members’ faces, and that grew into the world now, apparently. I don’t know man, it’s just an honor and a privilege,” Kenan said at the event (via ABC7). “Going in next to the GOAT, Lorne Michaels, that’s really cool.”
