Before classic clips were available online, as well as every episode available on Peacock, there was only one way that you could watch SNL clips. And that was through a best of compilation that they’d release on home video or DVD. But over the years, that’s fallen by the wayside and outside of holiday specials, they haven’t produced one for an individual performer in nearly a decade.
Well, in celebration of Kenan Thompson’s sitcom last night, SNL unveiled an hour long Best Of Kenan Thompson on it YouTube channel. It doesn’t quite feel like an official Best Of, and all the sketches on there are pretty recent, with the exception of What’s Up With That. We would’ve loved to have seen Scared Straight, Willie, Deep Dish, or some more classic sketches from earlier on in his 17 year run. But nevertheless, it’s definitely a well deserved fun look at Kenan Thompson’s Saturday Night Live oeuvre.
