SNL Gives Bernie Sanders a ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Spoof
If you're going to have the great Larry David host a full episode of SNL, there are two obvious areas of parody. First, you simply have to give him more to do as Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, whose unlikely showing in the recent Democratic presidential primaries have made David a regular gues…
SNL Ranked: Adam Driver
