For fans of Saturday Night Live, topical newsgathering isn’t a headache. The hilarious skit show has been on air for almost half a century while maintaining the quality. People who’ve grown up in the US know how vital a pop-culture reference SNL is. However, maybe there’s no time, better to watch the show than before a National Presidential Election.
After the massive success of the 2016 Election following series, the show needs to bring back its A-game. Also, the show is very obviously left-leaning, and the election of Then Republican candidate and Now US President Donald J. Trump was a bit of a bummer for the show. However, it’s a new day, it’s a new play, and most importantly, a brand new cast is assembling to make you laugh-out-loud.
Jim Carrey is the latest star to join the SNL party:-
A quintessential hallmark that the show has gotten over the course is the fantastic casting to parody pupolar figures. And that streak will continue of the 46th instalent of the show as well. Canadian-American comedian and actor, Jim Carrey will be part of the show. Not only that, he’s been specially roped in to play Joe Biden. Again, for those who’ve been living under a rock, Biden is the Democratic nominee for presidency and the rival of Trump for the US precidency.
Talking of classic casting choices, Alec Baldwin will continue his pouting mouth imitation of the incumbent president. His character commands a separate fanbase for his incredible parody of Trump ever since he took control of it in 2015.The major attraction for the upcoming season will be watching Carrey’s Biden going up against Baldwin’s Trump in the three debates.
Adding to Jim, SNL creator Lorne Michaels confirmed that Maya Rudolph will again imitate Kamala Harris, as she did for the Democractic convention skits. Also, current cast member Beck Bennett will continue to play Mike Pence.
When does the long-running classic return?
NBC confirmed that the new season of Saturday Night Live will premiere on October 3rd, 2020. That’s also an important date considering the fact that by then, the first presidential debate would’ve already taken place. So we’re expecting the show to hit the ground running and deliver on the sky-high expectations.
