John Goodman returned to Saturday Night Live to host the show for the 13th time this week, and got into the holiday spirit with the help of fake camels and some whipped cream. Surprise guests included Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro, who joined the Inside Llewyn Davis star for a sketch about three lesser-known biblical figures, the Three Wise Guys. Check out some of the episode's best sketches below:
Obama Cold Open: President Obama (Jay Pharoah) addresses some of the mishaps that occurred at the recent memorial for Nelson Mandela.
John Goodman Monologue: Goodman stresses how much he loves his wife and kids and duets with Kenan Thompson on "All I Want for Christmas Is Booty," which he dedicates to his wife.
Three Wise Guys: You may have heard of the Three Wise Men, but you probably aren't familiar with the Three Wise Guys — a trio from Long Island and New Jersey who traveled to Bethlehem to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.
Weekend Update: Santa Claus: After this week's controversy stemming from Fox News' Megyn Kelly asserting that Santa Claus and Jesus are both white, Kris Kringle himself (Thompson) stops by "Weekend Update" to prove her wrong.
Hallmark Holiday Countdown: This hilarious parody commercial teases all the holiday programming on the Hallmark Channel, including "On Dasher, On Danza" and "Yes Virginia, There Is a Santana."
Last Call: In the latest iteration of this recurring sketch, two lonely strangers (Goodman andKate McKinnon) make a drunken connection in a bar, spurred on by her Santa Claus fetish.
