My Favorite Sketch: Big Jay Oakerson ‘Derek Stevens Audition’ from Saturday Night Live
Big Jay Oakerson revealed to us that his favorite sketch as a child was when Dana Carvey was on Saturday Night Live. Carvey had many memorable characters while on the show. One of them was the musician Derek Stevens, who didn’t always prep in advance. In this clip he had an audition for some record execs (Phil Harman and Sigourney Weaver)and his lack of planning behind it. It’s a Carvey classic that he’s performed on many follow up specials.
By the way, if anyone has a better clip floating around out there, please pass it along, this was the best we could find.
