Amy Poehler Reunites with Maya Rudolph to Bring 'Bronx Beat' Back to SNL – and They Aren't Fans of Star Wars
Tina Fey also joins the ladies as Betty's (Amy Poehler) cousin from Philadelphia!
Saturday Night Live vets Amy Poehler and Tina Fey jumped into a few of their familiar characters when they hosted this weekend’s episode of the sketch show. And naturally, they brought along a few friends, like Maya Rudolph, who reprised her role alongside Poehler for “Bronx Beat.”
The two began the sketch – in their exaggerated New York accents – with gripes about their less-than-cheerful holiday season – and the “saturated” new Star Wars film, “may the force give me a break already,” Betty (Poehler) said.
“You know what I want for Christmas?” Betty said. “No more bad news!”
“Bad news. Gloom and doom. I’m sick of it,” Jodi (Rudolph) chimed in. “So stupid, it’s Christmas, give me a break … yeah, it’s Christmas, you think you got Santa coming down the chimney? It’s ISIS.”
Soon, the ladies got a visit from Betty’s cousin, Karen (Fey), from Philadelphia.
They couldn’t help but commend Fey on her “sophisticated” accent, although Rudolph seemed a bit confused by Fey’s pronunciation of water.
And then they dropped a bomb on viewers during the “Christmas episode” as well, announcing that Jodi is pregnant.
Although saddened by the “terrible, terrible news,” Betty proclaimed that “babies are a blessing.”
However, “If I was pregnant I’d kill myself.”
