SNL: Kevin Hart Spoofs Brooklyn Culture, Kate McKinnon Mocks Justin Bieber

1 minute read

Comedian Kevin Hart returned to Saturday Night Live for his second time hosting the show, which returned on Jan. 18 from its holiday hiatus with Sia as musical guest.

Here are three highlights from the show:

Kevin Hart stars alongside Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah as a trio of Bushwick, Brooklyn friends who discuss a new artisanal mayonnaise joint, spin classes and brunches. Hart also tells a story about how he killed someone while dogwalking — but that’s not as big of a controversy as using the word “Evite.”

Kate McKinnon parodies Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein underwear ads, riffing heavily on the controversy over speculated “digital enhancements.” McKinnon’s bratty man-child is joined by Cecily Strong, playing an exasperated model Lara Stone.

Kevin Hart takes on the role of soul legend James Brown, turning a performance of “Get Up (I Feel Like Being) A Sex Machine” into strange mid-act conversations with his bandmates, like why one of his backup singers changed her first name when she got married.
