It’s been a long time since we’ve seen some of our favorite comedians get together and pull off a really good skit. Over at Funny or Die, they recently released a video that features several “Saturday Night Live” alumni doing their famous impersonations of Presidents from the past. The actors include Will Ferrell, Dana Carvey, Darrell Hammond, Dan Aykroyd, and even Chevy Chase joined the party! By the way, the sketch was directed by Oscar winner Ron Howard. Take a look…
The video starts off with a worrisome Barack Obama as played by Fred Armisen, confiding in his wife Michelle, portrayed by Maya Rudolph. After the President and his wife go to sleep, they get awakened by several members of the Presidential past. Ferrell returns as George W. Bush, Hammond reprises his role of Bill Clinton, and Dana Carvey comes back as big papa Bush, George H.W.
They don’t just focus on the political figures from the past two decades, they go back even further with Akyroyd’s Jimmy Carter and Chase’s Gerald Ford. Everything was going according to plan until Jim Carrey randomly showed up as Ronald Reagan. The last time I checked he was on “In Living Color” during the nineties. Who the hell saw that coming?
I must admit, Aykroyd and Chase’s performances are my favorite. They really are oldies but goodies.
What do you think of the Saturday Night Live Presidential Reunion? Who gave the funniest performance?
