My Top 3 Saturday Night Live Sketches of the Week

Last night, SNL was hosted by someone named Halsey. I’ve never heard of her, but I thought she did a good job, and there were some solid sketches and bits. Here are my 3 favorites–all 3 of this hit close to home for me:

3. Instagram Couple

Despite cringing through this sketch (it reminded me of a few ex-girlfriends), I also laughed quite a bit. I love riffs on the huge difference between the perfection of social media posts and reality.
