Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 44x16: Sandra Oh & Tame Impala

March 31, 2019

Saturday Night Live Fantasy League presented by Trivia Club, is a Fantasy League like no other. Like Fantasy Football for the comedy nerd, participants draft cast members and prospective hosts before the start of the season and then are awarded points based of their performance through a scoring system. For additional points, before the start of each episode participants can guess which two songs they think the musical guest will perform. Since the beginning, this television institution has become the first step in the major leagues of comedy stardom, and with over forty seasons of familiar traditions, we’ve found a way to add maths to comedy and somehow make that a fun game to play.

Excellent work by Sandra Oh, and also wonderful to see Bowen Yang on the show as well! Sandra Oh not only brought amazing energy but also a CBC shirt to the show, so big points all around!
