Fey as Palin—Best Impersonation Ever

September 15, 2008 11:36 AM

And I thought Christina Aguilera was good when she did her impersonation of Samantha from “Sex and the City” on “Saturday Night Live” four years ago. But she has nothing on Tina Fey.

So in case you missed Tina Fey’s impression of Sarah Palin on “SNL” this weekend, here you go.

Fey was good, but sorry, she had nothing on Christina's Samantha. Fey had the advantage of looking like Tina, but Christina BECAME Samantha, and that would be a very hard character to parody.

Yes. Yes. Tina Fey was terrific. But the rest of the show (aside from Phelps' Mom)...well the format is tired and lacks surprise: filled with dull, long skits. SNL should hire some of the best web tv writers and actors for LIVE action. That's the leading edge of SNL-style comedy today. Use it as a recruiting ground. Cross promote to a SNL web channel.
