NBC has released clips from last night’s Saturday Night Live midseason premiere, which featured Marriage Story and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker star Adam Driver returning as host for the third time.
Halsey made her third appearance as “SNL” musical guest. The multi-platinum selling artist’s newest album, Manic, was released on January 17.
The show started with a Cold Open in which Donald Trump’s attorney, Alan Dershowitz (Jon Lovitz), gives Senator Mitch McConnell (Beck Bennett) and Senator Susan Collins (Cecily Strong) a preview of his impeachment defense. It was followed by Adam Driver’s monologue, in which the actor takes a moment to chill and share some fun (definitely not intense) facts about himself.
In addition to the Cold Open and monologue, the midseason premiere also featured Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren returning in “Undercover Boss,” which lets us know if he kept his promise to change the company (you can still watch the first “Undercover Boss” segment here).
Below, you’ll also find more Adam Driver skits, the full “Weekend Update” in four parts, and Halsey’s two performances.
