8 Best Saturday Night Live Skits Of Season 43

Saturday Night Live has made late-night audiences laugh since 1975. Season 43 of the show premiered on September 30, 2017. Check out the 8 skits that have made this season.

1. Close Encounter

Kate McKinnon plays a hilariously weird woman who believes she was abducted by aliens. We don’t blame Ryan Gosling for breaking; we would have laughed, too.
