‘SNL’ mocks Chris, Andrew Cuomo as Billie Eilish performs double duty

NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” parodied unemployed brothers Andrew and Chris Cuomo as the show returns from a two-week hiatus with Billie Eilish doubling as host and musical guest.

The cold open show parodied a holiday message from Dr. Anthony Fauci, played by Kate McKinnon.

The fictional Fauci introduces a grieving family group of unemployed brothers: Chris and Andrew Cuomo, played by Andrew Desmocks and Pete Davidson.

“Hey, I shamed former Governor Andrew Cuomo,” Davidson exclaimed.

“I’ve been disgraced by former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo,” Desmaux declared.

“We both lost our jobs because of COVID,” the brothers said.

McKinnon, like Fauci, has enlisted “representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” to operationalize situations Americans might encounter amid the spread of the COVID-19 omicron variant.

“The most important thing is vaccination. And if you’re vaccinated, get a boost. And if you’re boosted, you’ll probably want to get a little higher, maybe a little water,”

Heidi Garner photographed a restaurant hostess asking Mickey Day to show his vaccination card.

“Do you mean you lost the one inch piece of paper they gave you?” “So you are expelled from society. Enjoy living in the woods.”

Meanwhile, Bryant taunted Senator Ted Cruz, describing how he took revenge on the late Senator Bob Dole, for calling him unlovable.

“This week I wasn’t wearing the mask at Bob Dole’s funeral…Imagine him looking at his funeral and the only face you can see is mine,” Bryant said.

Eilish, 19, stepped out for her monologue wearing a white dress with red frills.

“If you don’t know me because of my music, you might know me by my hair and my clothes. That’s why I dressed like Mrs. Claus to go to the club.”

About her fondness for wearing oversized clothes when she was younger, she joked, “I was actually two kids stacked on top of each other trying to sneak into an R-rated movie.”

Then she pulled a photo of 16-year-old Coleen Jost, a 16-year-old with acne and bespectacled, to suggest that it’s unfair to judge people based on how they look at that age.

The Weekend Update section has grabbed some headlines over the past few weeks, including Josie Smollett’s ruling and the spread of COVID-19 in Manhattan.

“On Thursday, a Chicago jury declared Josie Smollett to be very bad at acting,” Jost said. “It’s the worst organized hate crime since my full Christian production of Fiddler on the Roof.”

The CDC thinks the omicron variant was making its debut during a recent anime convention in New York. Damn it. The only time they left the house, Michael Che cracked.

The fake broadcaster also ridiculed the recent allegations against Chris Cuomo.

“After CNN fired Chris Cuomo, it was revealed that he was accused of sexual misconduct just like his older brother. Well, these two are quite a married couple,” Cuomo told a co-worker, Che joked.

Miley Cyrus appeared in a skit featuring the perfect-looking Christmas cards for a suburban couple’s acquaintances.

“What better way to remind you that I met a celebrity in a restaurant 11 months before they put it on my Christmas card?” Racist if you don’t.

Another infographic on a distracted teen’s TikTok feed showed mismatches of pasta-eating videos, silly conspiracy theories, and nasty audio covers of Flo Rida and Lil Wayne, claymation Homer Simpsons and Twerking in the hospital room.

Eilish plays a teenager who invites a lonely neighbor (McKinnon) to Christmas dinner, only to discover through a series of handwritten letters that the woman is a die-hard, schizophrenic killer.

The teen singer-songwriter was introduced by her parents when she took to the stage to perform dynamic performances of the title track for her new recording “Happier Than Ever” and the closer album “Male Fantasy”.

Eilish also portrayed a ballroom singer who fronted a group of female singers who all had bad embarrassing experiences with Santa, played by Kenan Thompson.

“SNL” returns live next week from 30 Rock’s Studio 8H with host Paul Rudd and guest musician Charli XCX.
