Ever since its debut 42 years ago, Saturday Night Live has specialized in political satire. From Chevy Chase’s Gerald Ford to Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump, American politicians have provided plenty of opportunities for great SNL impersonations and sketches over the years. Larry David, who got rave reviews for his spot-on Bernie Sanders impression during the 2016 campaign, will be hosting SNL on November 4, and you can bet he’ll be breaking out his Bernie again. David, whose first TV gig was on the ’80s sketch show Fridays, told us that once people saw Sanders debate, he was booked on SNL almost instantly. (Click on the media bar below to hear Larry David)
In addition to hosting SNL on November 4, David is starring in a new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Sunday nights on HBO.
