“Uh, so Maggie died, should we… talk about that, or… guys?”
They should have opened with this sketch on SNL, nope, instead it gets bumped back to after Weekend Update. This was pretty funny (though not as funny as the Creepy Merryville Brothers Halloween sketch* from the show Bruno Mars hosted last October, which you can see here) , especially since the writing on SNL for the past few months has seemed weaker than usual to us. But we love Kevin Hart, zombies, and The Walking Dead (think he did some writing for the show he hosted, since it was above par) and this sketch didn’t disappoint. Best, funniest SNL since Bruno Mars hosted.
*then again, haven’t seen anything that funny on SNL since; after a Christmas party last year we watched ‘The Merryville Brothers Halloween’ sketch again (we were both pretty hammered at the time) and were doubled over howling with laughter as soon as they started singing. It’s just as funny sober, though!

Kevin hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ on March 2, bringing the most laughs with a parody of ‘The Walking Dead.’ See how Kevin makes turning into a zombie look funny!
In the sketch, Kevin comes across Rick (Taran Killam) and other characters from the series including Carl, Maggie and Daryl. When they turn their backs to decide if they should let Kevin into the group, he’s bitten by a walker (another term for zombie). Unaware of the fresh bite, the group lets Kevin become “one of them.”
