SNL is basically an American Institution at this point. Think of a famous comic actor of the past years and it’s hugely likely they will have got their start on the late-night variety show. Since it’s premiere in 1975, it’s given us way too many iconic moments to count.
But one character who’s stood out above the rest has to be Bill Hader’s incredible Stefon. The New York City expert gave us some of the most incredibly creative descriptions of counter-cultural nightlife ever. But the best part? How often Hader broke character and started laughing at the absurdity of what he was saying.
Since 2013, Stefon has unfortunately left the show along with Hader. But now SNL has released a 5-video series of every single Stefon appearance. Prepare to lose over an hour of your life.
