The comedy gods have answered our prayers: Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers recently reunited once more. The best part? The duo came together to reprise one of their beloved Saturday Night Live sketches. Here are all of the funny details.
Can you guess which SNL skit the comedians took on? It's the one, the only: Really!?! With Seth and Amy. The former castmates, who were co-hosts of SNL's Weekend Update for roughly two years, poked fun at recent events with their hilarious catchline. From billionaire space races to Tom Brady, no one was left untouched.
"Really, billionaires? This is what you're going to do with your unprecedented fortunes and influence, drag race to outer space?" Seth asked Richard Branson, Jeff Bezos, and Elon Musk. "If you're trying to be more likable, this won't work. It's like if Tom Brady tried to be more likable by wearing a fedora and yammering about Bitcoin."
If you didn't know that quarterback Tom Brady has been promoting cryptocurrency, now you know. Thank you, Seth. But the 47-year-old wasn't done with those space billionaires just yet. "Also, Richard Branson didn't go to outer space. He just went pretty high for a plane. You went to outer sky. I mean, really?" Meyers continued.
"You did the astronaut equivalent of driving by your ex's house to see if the lights were on? What was the best thing you saw out the window, a kite? Really," Seth added. "Really, somebody paid $28 million to join Jeff Bezos on his flight? I mean, that takes calling shotgun to a whole new level," Amy hilariously said. "Really, that's like that parent at your kid's school fundraiser who outbid you on the free blowout. We get it, Linda; we know you're a billionaire."
And then Seth added his cherry on top of the Jeff Bezos roast: "Bezos, you're charging people to come along, really?" the Late Night host questioned. "You can afford to spring for it, you know? You're like the guy who says, 'Hey, I've got an extra ticket to Springsteen on Broadway, you wanna go? Great, it's 800 bucks.'"
