The best Saturday Night Live sketches of the '00s brought us some of the funniest, wackiest and most memorable moments and characters to ever grace the Saturday Night Live stage. From Gilly to Colonel Angus to Stefon to the Barry Gibb Talk Show, these Saturday Night Live sketches from the 2000s easily rival any of the previous decades.
Spanning seasons 25-35 of the long-running show, the 2000s saw not only great writing on Saturday Night Live but also some of the most remarkable cast members who took these characters to the next level. The likes of Will Ferrell, Molly Shannon, Jimmy Fallon, and Chris Kattan ushered in the decade while stars like Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, Andy Samberg, and Bill Heder finished the 2000s on the series. Each brought something special to the show and many will be remembered as portraying some of the best Saturday Night Live characters of all time.
But just as the best SNL 2000s sketches one-upped the best SNL sketches from the 1990s (like character Penelope did in any situation she encountered), the 2010s are hot on the tail of the 2000s with more fantastic Saturday Night Live appearing on NBC weekly.
