Hands down our favorite current Weekend Update guest is Kenan Thompson’s David Ortiz (a.k.a. Big Papi). There’s just such a joy to his impression and Big Papi is such a goofball anyway that it totally and completely works. Plus, the way that Kenan says “mofongo” gets us every time. So, imagine our delight when Kenan broke out his Ortiz impression on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Not only did he adopt the accent, but he also brought some wonderful new products, like Mohawks, Slow-Ass Panda, and the new dating site, Go Outside.
Kenan also passed Seth Meyers this season to become the second-longest serving cast member of all time. Darrell Hammond holds the record for being the longest-serving cast member, and with the continued dominance of Trump, it doesn’t look like that will change any time soon. Still, Kenan is a solid and reliable performer and we’ll definitely miss him when he decides to move on.
