Saturday Night Live gave fans a glimpse at what This specific can be Us might look like, if of which took place entirely within the White House having a brilliant fake commercial for This specific can be U.S.
Sterling K. Brown made his SNL hosting debut over the weekend, as well as brought his Emmy-winning gravitas to one of the show’s best sketches playing Secretary of Urban Housing as well as Development Ben Carson.
Perfectly mimicking the NBC drama’s look as well as feel, This specific can be U.S. features Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant), a drunk as well as shirtless Jared Kushner (Pete Davidson) as well as a cold-hearted Kellyanne Conway (Kate McKinnon) all struggling with the day-to-day problems of working inside Trump White House.
“of which’s the shows critics are calling, ‘Like This specific can be Us, although without the parts of which feel not bad,'” the deep-voiced narrator intones, before sharing another review. “‘You’ll be laughing through tears. Except without the laughing. So I guess just regular crying.'”
The commercial also promised “hella crying” over a montage of Carson, Sanders, Kusher as well as Vice President Mike Pence (Beck Bennett) openly sobbing. The only person not overcome with emotion can be Conway, who tried to get out a tear before giving up as well as laughing.
“No, I can’t cry,” the Counselor to the President explained. “I have nothing in me.”
Brown shined coming from the moment he took the stage, where he jokingly struggled to fight back tears during his hilarious monologue.
“I actually have a reputation for being pretty sensitive,” Brown explained. “although what can I say? I’m an actor, as well as I wear my emotions on my sleeve.”
He only made of which a few moments in before the feelings began to well up inside him about getting to host the show for once, as well as he had to psych himself up yelling, “Wooo! Get of which together, Sterling Kathleen, of which’s all not bad.”
Brown recently spoke with ET about his debut hosting gig, as well as said he’s not truly of which nervous about stepping onto the iconic stage in Studio 8H.
“The thing of which I’m most nervous about can be I’m delivering the commencement address at Stanford University. of which’s what I’m nervous about,” Brown shared. “When I go to SNL, they have truly talented writers who are pretty not bad at what they do, who are not going to let a brother fall flat on his face. So I have a support network there to keep me buoyed about.”
