Elton John Comes to SNL
For the first time since 1982, Elton John will be a guest on Saturday Night Live this coming weekend. There’s one major difference between his gig in 1982 and the one on April 2…Elton’s hosting! I mean, he’s going to be the musical guest, too, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen Elton act, have you? Especially not in a sketch comedy show.
His cameo on The Nanny doesn’t count.
Okay, maybe it does a little bit. But that’s beside the point. I’m actually pretty excited about the prospect of Elton having no filter. I just hope the SNL writers can make it worthwhile! With a guest like this, they shouldn’t take it for granted that he’ll just naturally be funny. He’s no Zach Galifianakis.
Excited for Saturday Night Live with Elton John?
