This recurring '70s game show sketch gave us one of Kristen Wiig's greatest characters: washed-up Broadway actress Mindy Gracin, star of hit flops like "Kenya Karen and the Watubi Crew," "The Incoherence of Miss Tiffany," and "Wigwam Suzy and the Corn Maize Crew."
The sketch that gave us Kate McKinnon’s Jane Lynch (“America’s No. 2 lesbian”) is a worthy successor to "Celebrity Jeopardy" in terms of wacky-brilliant celebrity impressions.
From a time when racial tensions on SNL were high (something Chris Rock has spoken about at length), this sketch about an Italian-American game show host (Joe Pesci, at his best) singling out a black contestant packs a real punch.
This glorious sketch seems to have been lost to the annals of history (at least online). You can still read the transcript (click the sketch title above) -- although no script can do justice to Billy Crystal's Sammy Davis Jr. impression. Martin Short, playing the titular albino lounge singer, proves why he's one of SNL's all-time MVPs.
