1. That was great!

Especially like Liz Warren (Kate McKinnon) and Opera Man. I am almost embarrassed to admit that I found Adam Sandler funny, but I did.

Thanks for posting Rhiannon!

2. I liked her Elizabeth Warren especially too!

She's long been a favorite of mine but this was also very funny! And I've never been an Adam Sandler fan, either - but he was pretty funny on the show...

3. The Opera Man sketch was funny.

I'm not much of a fan of Adam Sandler, but Opera Man was one of his best characters.

6. I've only watched one, Waterboy.

Sandler was a Cajun who was a walk-on to the college football team who lead his team to a national championship as quarterback. He lived out in the swamp and was a mama's boy. His mama didn't approve of the wild ways of his girlfriend. Henry Winkler was the football coach.

8. I've only seen one, as well, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry

He and Kevin James pretended to be a gay couple so they could get domestic partner benefits/healthcare for widowed Kevin James' kids. It also starred Dan Aykroyd, Steve Buscemi, Rachel Dratch and Richard Chamberlain - good cast, but a weird premise for a comedy.

7. I'm not a fan, either, but it was a blast from the past

And I think this Opera Man sketch was funnier than those from back in the day. Overall, I thought it was a pretty funny show.

10. Kate McKinnon can impersonate anybody!

Male, female, any age - but I agree that her Elizabeth Warren was priceless!
