‘SNL’ Shared Will Ferrell’s 1995 Audition Tape And It Is Absolutely Hysterical
Picking out a favorite Will Ferrell sketch is like choosing a favorite puppy at that store in the mall. You wish you could take all of them home with you, but instead you’ll probably just head to Sbarro and scarf down a few slices.
This Saturday night, SNL will bring back its most famous cast member to host for the fourth time, bringing in musical guest and Grammy nominee Chris Stapleton.
In anticipation for Ferrell’s return, SNL shared the comedian’s audition tape from 1995–containing impersonations from Chicago sportscaster Harry Caray, Senator Ted Kennedy, an Angry Dad at a BBQ, and his best cat impression.
Without further ado:
