Kristen Wiig's Funniest SNL Characters

  • Published on Nov 8, 2018
  • Here are some of Kristen Wiig's hysterical characters she embodied during her run on SNL. Her hilarious clips as Penelope, Shana, Kathie Lee Gifford, and so many others proved there were no bounds for her comedic talent. Kristen Wiig as an obvious pro at improvisation, and more importantly, was not only willing to take risks with her outrageous characters, she relished the opportunity.

    Love your clips Eric, esp. the opening sequences with the varied shots of Kristen Wiig, like it was the real opening of a show.

    wiig's point of reference for a number of these characters is quite unique. they are more than just imagined "impressions." they seem more like characters created around some type of human idiosyncrasy or certain kinds of abstract concepts. who knows where she's pulling all this from. we would not actually know people like many of these people in real life but they are a display of what people do . . .

      Because right after that, the video shows Kristen impersonating Kathy Lee. It's for comparison.

    Kristen Wiig would make a great talk show host because you have to be funny but not too funny like Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, or Conan O'Brien and she has kind eyes.
