Watch the director’s cut extended version of Louis CK’s SNL “Lincoln” sitcom parody

Doing a parody of the upcoming big-screen Steven Spielberg movie, Lincoln, is a foregone conclusion for Saturday Night Live.

Having host Louis CK portray Lincoln in a spot-on parody of his own FX series, Louie, is a welcome surprise. Even more welcome, then, is this extended director’s cut of the short film, written by SNL head writer Seth Meyers. Featuring Aidy Bryant as Mary Todd Lincoln, with Kenan Thompson and Jay Pharoah as emancipated slaves.

Roll the clips!

  1. I didn’t think that the Lincoln skit was as great, but most of the others were! Louis C.K. is definitely one of my favorite hosts of the season. The skit that made me laugh the most was the disturbing kiss in the bar with Kate McKinnon. I couldn’t see the show last night since I was working late at DISH. I set up my DISH Hopper to automatically record the show and I watched it this morning. It’s nice that I can have the entire season on my DISH DVR, and still have plenty of recording space left over. I sure hope that Louis C.K. hosts again in the future.
