As most of you know, I’m a pretty huge Saturday Night Live fan and one of my favorite performers is the one and only Kate McKinnon. Her impressions are spot on, she usually never breaks character and she seems like a genuinely fun person to hang around with. In honor of her birthday today (1/6), I’ve decided to share a few of my favorite sketches of her on SNL from over the years.

Kate joined the cast in April of 2012 and has over 50 people she impersonates including politicians, pop stars, public figures and more. Happy birthday, Kate!

“Close Encounter”

If I ever get abducted by aliens, I hope it’s something like this!



“Hotel Ad”

We’ve all stayed in a place like this!

“Pet Rescue Commercial”

Adopt, don’t shop.

Kate McKinnon as Ellen DeGeneres

Go F yourselves.

Martha Stewart for Match.com

Everyone deserves love.
