‘SNL’ Releases All of Bill Hader’s Stefon Appearances

Share on Facebook

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.

SNL is one of the most popular shows on TV.

When it comes to original comedy, there’s really nothing better.

It first launched in 1975 and has had a recurring cast of talented comedians and celebrity guest hosts ever since.

Tons of hugely popular comedians and actors got their start on SNL, including Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, Tina Few, Will Ferrell, and Pete Davidson.

Like Alec Baldwin’s iconic take on Donald Trump.

But when it comes to famous SNL characters?

There may be one who stands out above the rest. Bill Hader’s Stefon was an absolute fan favorite during his run on the show.

He’s starred in a ton of total classics, including Pineapple Express, Superbad, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. He’s also taken on some more dramatic roles, like the grown-up Richie Tozier in It: Chapter 2.

Bill Hader got his first break into the comedy scene on SNL, working on the show from 2005 until 2013.

There was none more iconic than Stefon. The self-proclaimed “New York City correspondent” was an absolute joy to watch since his first appearance in 2008.

The amazingly out-there descriptions of NYC nightlife. “Visions a dying gay man would have if he was under too many blankets,” anyone?

Bill Hader often couldn’t quite hold it together during his Stefon monologues and ended up bursting out laughing midway through a sketch.  

Hader was leaving SNL – and with him, Stefon.

This incredible Twitter account, which creates remarkably accurate Stefon quotes.

SNL has finally decided to put every single Stefon appearance together – meaning everything is in one place.

We can’t believe we’ve waited this long to relive our favorite Stefon moments!

SNL hasn’t been the same without him!  

Fans have been absolutely desperate to see him again.

Well, kinda. It’s not exactly new Stefon content. But it’s way, way better than nothing.

Finally getting SNL to listen and compile all of the Stefon magic into some easily accessible vids is truly great news.

Sure, it’ll take you some time to catch up. But that’s time well spent!

Once these videos have been consumed, that might be the end of Stefon news forever!

They were released in a 5-part series over the past few days on the official SNL YouTube channel.

Which means there’s now over an hour of free Stefon content ready for your enjoyment.

“Has SNL finally realized how much everyone loves Bill Hader?” wrote one commenter. “Cards Against Humanity needs to come out with a Stefon expansion pack,” laughed another.

That uber-tight Ed Hardy shirt combined with oddly shiny highlighted fringe is everything to us.

Thank you, SNL!
