Saturday Night Live has made late-night audiences laugh since 1975. Season 43 of the show premiered on September 30, 2017. Check out the 8 skits that have made this season.

1. Close Encounter

Kate McKinnon plays a hilariously weird woman who believes she was abducted by aliens. We don’t blame Ryan Gosling for breaking; we would have laughed, too.


2. First Date

A woman, played by Gal Gadot goes on a date. We won’t reveal the sketch’s main plot, but we are sure it’s going to make you laugh out loud!


3. Kellywise

This sketch was from Kumail Nanjiani’s episode of the show. The digital short shows Anderson Cooper interacting with Kellyanne Conway. Needless to say, hilarity ensues.


4. The Baby Step

Saturday Night Live skits can get pretty ridiculous sometimes. Host Larry David wants nothing to do with this baby-themed music video!


5. Tournament Fighter

Tiffany Haddish was one of the most charismatic hosts this season! In this skit, Boo Boo Jefferies is a character in Death Fighter 12 and has some hilarious reactions to getting punched.


6. Come Back, Barack

Chance the Rapper, Kenan Thompson, Chris Redd bring back ‘90s R&B with this little number.


7.Floribama Shore

For those folks who are fans of reality television, you understand how bizarre it can be! You’ll probably want to quote this skit after you’re done watching.


8. Gift Wrap

We aren’t too sure why this made us laugh so hard. Maybe it’s James’ reaction or the fact that Leslie Jones couldn’t keep her composure. Regardless, it’s one not to be missed.
