Saturday Night Live: Chance the Rapper leads the laughs in Thanksgiving special

The rapper’s hosting was a highlight of the season in an episode that addressed Al Franken, and gave us an unparalleled Thanksgiving parody anthem

Kate McKinnon is Julian Assange, patchy beard and all, creeping in a parking garage next to Mikey Day, as Trump Jr, shortly joined by Eric, played by Alex Moffat. “I told you to come alone,” says Assange. “Eric’s wife had to work so I have him for the day,” Jr explains.

Sarah Silverman: ‘Jokes I made 15 years ago I'd not make today’

Sarah Silverman’s comedy has always aimed a laser into the dark corners of sexism, racism and religion. But now she’s using her wit to make sense of the huge issues facing America. Sophie Heawood meets her in Hollywood

Arriving at the Hollywood studio complex where Sarah Silverman has her office, I am surprised to find nobody can tell me where it is.

Do not walk thru this door! You are loved, feel better! Sarah!” So far, so adorable.

Germs and visitors might struggle to make their way past reception, but dogs are clearly welcomed like sacred Indian cows here: two of them trot past me unaccompanied. The animals have
