It’s time for another episode of Second Chance Theater. That’s a segment on Late Night w/Seth Meyers where we revisit all the sketches that were cut for various reasons from Saturday Night Live. The cast and writers get a second bite at the apple (in this case, literally) to see if they can make the sketch work.
Earlier this week, Jason Sudeikis and Mike O’Brien joined Seth for a remote installment of Second Chance Theater. This time, we see a sketch that first debuted At dress rehearsal back in 2010, with Betty White. The sketch follows Jason Sudeikis, playing a single father, getting unicorns for his kid’s birthday party, before Bruce the wrangler (O’Brien) tells him he has to put the infected unicorns down.
Honestly, the sketch works really well in the remote setting. And it makes us wonder if we could possibly see any more sketches like this done with these parameters. Check out more about the history of the sketch below.
