‘SNL’ Tackles the Stranded Carnival Cruise
One of the most talked about topics this past week was the stranded Carnival cruise ship that found itself simply floating along in the ocean without power, sanity, and toilets. Naturally, the story eventually found itself on the floor of studio 8H in Rockefeller Plaza — home of ‘Saturday Night Live.’
During last night’s cold open — with host Christoph Waltz — cast members Jason Sudeikis and Cecily Strong portrayed two shipmates desperately attempting to turn their passengers’ attention away from the “dookie on the walls.” Yet despite such attempts, it looked as if no one could forget that they hadn’t showered for days. Even the captain (played by Fred Armisen) seemed to be having some issues.
Our guess is that Mobile, Alabama never looked so good!
