Bern Your Enthusiasm.

NBC

One of the best sketches from this Saturday Night Live was “Bern Your Enthusiasm,” which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: An episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm starring Bernie Sanders (that is: Larry-David-as-Bernie-Sanders).

The sketch has Sanders facing public fallout on the campaign trail after he refuses to shake a woman’s hand moments after she coughs into it—the old “cough and shake.” The best part might be the series of very impressive SNL cast member impersonations of Curb characters, from Bobby Moynihan’s Jeff to Cecily Strong’s Susie to Jay Pharoah’s Leon.
