Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer was the Best Sketch on Saturday Night Live in Recent Memory
Melissa McCarthy performed a fantastic sketch on Saturday Night Live where she impersonated new White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Her performance was not scheduled and her costume was so perfect that the audience did not immediately recognize her as the comedic genius McCarthy.
But afterwards, the reviews came in quickly hailing this sketch as one of the top performances in the show’s recent history.
Among them was Spicer himself who thought the performance was actually pretty funny.
Check it out for yourself. If you haven’t seen a Spicer press conference, it may be worth to watch that video first (directly below the McCarthy video) in order to fully appreciate her performance.
Here is the first Sean Spicer press conference.
