Will Ferrell Amps Up Drama, Gets Laughs, In Cut ‘SNL’ Skit

Will Ferrell Amps Up Drama In

In a cut-for-time Saturday Night Live sketch posted today on YouTube, guest host Will Ferrell cracks up nearly the entire cast with his turn as an extremely dramatic high school drama teacher.

In the sketch, a bunch of drama students are nervously waiting on their teacher to post the cast list for the upcoming Bye Bye Birdie, who delights in stretching out the torture and dropping wicked hints of who’s in and who’s out.

The teacher also announces that the production will employ “Hamilton casting rules – any race for any part unless of course it strikes me as weird.”

By the end of the sketch, the kids – Beck Bennett, Heidi Gardner, Aidy Bryant, Mikey Day, Alex Moffat, Cecily Strong, Kyle Mooney, Bowen Yang – can’t keep straight faces. 

Check out the sketch above.
