SNL is Our Favorite Show Again; IntoxiKate is Back; YWCA White Plains Holiday Food Drive

 

Here’s what’s happening Today in the 914, according to Westchester Woman: SNL is Our Favorite Show Again; IntoxiKate is Back; YWCA White Plains Food Drive; MORE.

1.) We admit that we stopped watching New York’s Saturday Night Live for a while, but we don’t think we’re going to miss an episode of SNL anytime soon. The cast is funny and diverse, the writing is smart and gets us to laugh when talking about issues like racism and sexism, even though that stuff sometimes makes us want to cry.

It does this all with a lot of heart and without being too divisive. Like this episode that shows us we can all find things in common with each other:

Some unity was definitely needed after last week’s election results, and they got one of the best in the country to help bring us together… Dave Chappelle. AND a Tribe Called Quest was the musical act! The episode started with a beautiful and hopeful rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” by SNL‘s Hillary Clinton a.k.a. Kate McKinnon before Chappelle’s opening stand-up monologue.

Chappelle was raw, honest, hilarious and made fun of EVERYONE. The episode captured the white shock and outrage that occurred after America elected “an internet troll” as president, and other issues like mass shootings that once gripped the country before the election noise started.

He also reprized our favorite Chappelle’s Show characters. If you missed the full episode, you can watch it here:
