Dana Carvey Returns to 'Saturday Night Live' Tonight!


church ladyDana Carvey returns to Saturday Night Live tonight as host of the late night show!  Dana Carvey is one of the most successful alums from SNL, his time on the show from the late 1980’s until the early 1990’s is one of the strongest periods in the history of the live TV comedy show.

Some of Dana Carvey’s characters like the Church Lady, Garth Algar (from Wayne’s World) Hans, George Bush are still funny, nearly 15 years later.

So when it was announced that Carvey would be hosting “SNL” this weekend for the first in over 10 years, I just had to go back in time and find a clip of Dana as The Church Lady!

Watch Dana Carvey’s promos with Andy Samberg about tonight’s show.  This SNL will be filled with a good dose of Dana Carvey’s characters and catchphrases!  I can’t wait!
