23 "Saturday Night Live" Hosts Who Just Couldn't Stop Themselves From Breaking Character
Hosting "Saturday Night Live" is a challenge, which is maybe why there are so many instances of "SNL" hosts breaking character. Over the decades, a who's who of Hollywood actors, music stars, and comedy legends have hosted the sketch comedy show and participated in the skits. Coming up against the masterful comedy of the show's cast is often too much for these hosts to handle, as they break character and get the giggles because of their costars' antics.
Among the actors who have broke character when faced with an "SNL" star's hilarious performance is Pedro Pascal, who just couldn't keep it together when Ego Nwodim's Lisa from Temecula couldn't cut her extremely well-done steak. The harder Lisa worked to cut her steak, the more giggly "The Last of Us" star became. Pascal shouldn't feel bad, though — Nwodim was so funny, even her fellow costars Bowen Yang, Punkie Johnson, and Molly Kearney could't hold it together, either.
In truth, it's almost always funnier when the hosts can't keep a straight face because it's a reminder that they're just like the rest of us! If your day could use some hearty laughs, keep reading for 23 of the funniest moments of "SNL" hosts breaking character over the years.
