'Saturday Night Live': Jon Hamm joins Zach Galifianakis for 'Darrell's House'
Some people enjoy "Saturday Night Live" for broad topical humor and pop culture parodies, but "SNL" fans who prefer the show's weirder and more absurd tangents had a special treat in the "Darrell's House" sketch from last night's Zach Galifianakis-hosted show.
Galifianakis was on point throughout the show, but aside from his opening monologue it was "Darrell's House" that felt the most purely Galifianakis-ian in spirit -- like a slightly skewed spin on his "Between Two Ferns" web series.
It also illustrates the reason why even though sitting through the entirety of "Saturday Night Live" is often a slog, it's worth it for those moments when it pays off with something entirely unexpected. Separating this sketch over two segments -- the totally weird and uncomfortably funny set-up, and then returning right before the show ended with a perfect payoff -- works even better in the context of a full-length show than it does as individual viral videos.
But if you missed the show, the clips will have to do. Check out the set-up above, and the payoff below.
