Cut SNL sketch with Amy Poehler takes you back to Christmas at Nana’s

We’re not sure who makes the editing decisions over at Saturday Night Live, but it seems like the sketches they cut for time are often stronger than the ones they actually air. When Donald Trump appeared on the show, producers cut a hilarious sketch where the cast was shrunk Fantastic Voyage-style so they could stabilize his hair on a windy day, and now an funny/festive sketch from Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s appearance has received the same treatment.

Entitled Christmas at Nana’s, the bit features Amy Poehler and Kyle Mooney as whiny pre-teen siblings ruining Christmas with an immature spat and Kate McKinnon as their disappointed mother. Anyone who has ever had a silly fight with a sibling (i.e. — anyone with siblings) can relate to the sketch, as Mooney and Poehler trade absurd barbs, muttering them under their breath so that their words are barely audible. Here’s one of the funnier exchanges:

KM: “Stop looking at me!”

AP: “I’m not looking at you, geek of the week.”

KM: “I’m not the geek of the week, that’s not even a thing.”

Eventually, the two make up and share an awkward hug, but shortly thereafter, McKinnon returns to deliver some bad news about Nana. We won’t spoil the surprise for you, but suffice it to say there’s a bit of an unexpected twist at around the 2:55 mark. Oh well, at least she made it to 109 … Let’s open presents!!!

We’re guessing the sketch was cut in favor of bits that featured both Fey and Poehler, but for those that want to take a trip back in time, the entire skit is embedded above.

Last week’s episode was the final show of 2015, but the show is set to return from its Holiday hiatus on January 16, 2016, when Adam Driver (AKA Kylo Ren) guest-hosts the festivities.
