Saturday Night Live debuted a new skit last night for The Price is Right: Celebrity Edition, which was just as hilarious as classic Celebrity Jeopardy.

If you enjoy it when Saturday Night Live slams celebrities with hilarious impressions, you’re going to love this new sketch!

For many years, Will Ferrell would host “Celebrity Jeopardy” segments on SNL in character as Alex Trebek. The skits are still among the most popular to have ever been on the series. But with Ferrell long gone, so are the skits, but that doesn’t mean the show can’t do something similar and just as hilarious.

That brings us to last night’s “The Price is Right: Celebrity Edition.” In this game, celebrity guests are on teams with ordinary people from the audience. This includes Lil Wayne (Chris Redd), Chris Hemsworth (Alex Moffat), Tilda Swinton (Kate McKinnon), and Bernie Sanders (host Larry David). Miley Cyrus also takes part in the skit, playing someone from the audience, along with Kenan Thompson, Leslie Jones, and Pete Davidson).

All of the talent involved makes this skit hilarious, and I’m hoping it becomes a regular thing, ala “Celebrity Jeopardy”. At the least it was one of the funniest bits from last night’s show. And I guess I never get tired of Larry David’s Bernie Sanders.
