‘Saturday Night Live': Bill Hader’s Stefon Stops By ‘Weekend Update’ — Watch

[Video] Saturday Night Live: Bill Hader's Stefon Character Returns to Weekend Update

This clip is a reminder of how funny bits used to be on Saturday Night Live. It would have been a comedy crime if Bill Hader's city correspondent, Stefon, didn't stop by the Weekend Update news desk, so of course, he did.  Hader never just made his Gotham alter ego a plain effeminate guy; it's the wild voices that are Stefon's trademarks, and this time the comedian folds in his killer impersonation of a Tauntaun from Star Wars. Stefon offered up his latest picks of those… Read
