Robert DeNiro and Sylvester Stallone Make Suprise Appearance On SNL As “Three Wise Guys”

Even though veteran John Goodman was hosting this week, Saturday Night Live also saw Sylvester Stallone and Robert DeNiro make a surprise appearance this weekend. The trio portrayed a group of track-suited goombahs riding through the desert on camels to visit the newly born Jesus, as “The Three Wise Guys.”

“I hear his father’s in construction,” says Sly.

“Yeah, but I heard the kid might not be his,” replies Bobby.

The sketch was slow and seemed very under-rehearsed, and it took something away knowing that Stallone and DeNiro were probably trying to promote their upcoming film Grudge Match. But it’s always fun to see pros playing off of each other (this was Goodman’s 13th time hosting)- and when else could they use such an appropriately-placed camel toe joke?

Other stand out sketches from the night included President Obama being “aided” by the sign language translator from Nelson Mandela‘s funeral and accosted by German chancellor Angela Merkel, demanding her own selfie with him; a rap about H&M’s super cheap, skin tight, disintegrating clothing and chaotic stores; And Kenan Thompson (the night’s MVP, appearing in almost every sketch), commenting on the controversy surrounding the comments from Megyn Kelly of Fox News, saying that Santa is definitely white.

(But Thompson-as-Santa clarified that Mrs. Claus isn’t black. “If Mrs. Claus was black, Santa would be living in Atlanta near her mama.”)

What did you think of this week’s episode of SNL?
