Louis C.K. Hosted 'SNL' For a Second Time and Was Hilarious: Here Are His 4 Best Moments

Louis C.K. hosted "Saturday Night Live" this past Saturday and of course -- not maybe -- it was hilarious. Here are his best four moments.

1. Opening Monologue

Louis C.K. has a simple, casual way of delving into the core of what it means to be human. He provides a kind of makeup mirror -- the ones that magnify one's face to an uncomfortable degree -- that lets us examine what condition our condition is in. If we look and listen long enough, we can see most of our gross little hypocrisies laid bare. In his opening monologue, the comedian covers some serious ground:


2. "Office Boss"

Physical comedy will never stop making people laugh when its done right. Beck Bennet does it right. The man has a stunning and beautiful propensity for becoming a baby. How much time did he spend alone, practicing his baby body moves in front of a mirror? Food for thought. 

The unsung hero of this scene is Louis C.K. It's a miracle that he didn't break. As you'll see, keeping a straight face while watching this happen is a herculean feat of unimaginable strength.


3. "Black Jeopardy"

As a white person watching "Black Jeopardy," I felt a lot like Louis C.K's character in the scene. Awkward, vaguely aware of hardening stereotypes, confused about how to participate, and unsure if I had permission to laugh. Sometimes it's a good thing to become self-conscious about who you are.


4. "Doctor's Appointment"

It's a timeless question that everyone asks themselves at some point in their lives. Is there a Darth Vader action figure lodged up my butt?

    I'm in australia
    I can no longer view videos
    Why do you do this?
    You have just made yourself less relevant
    to me, and I'm going to be moving to the U.S
    for work soon as well.
    But your site now completely sucks in my mind
    Tell your financially minded people well
    done, that's what IW is all about
    Exclusion and profit
    Lame job guys

    Why exactly couldn't they do the Darth Vader action figure in my butt sketch live? Nothing in it screamed, "We can't do this on the show with the cast live!" What a cheating moment. It's not Saturday Night Prerecorded.
