12 thoughts on “Who is Your All-Time Favorite SNL Recurring Character?

  1. It’s tough to pick one because there have been so many great ones over the years–Gilda Radner’s Lisa Loopner; Eddie Murphys Mr. Robinson; Martin Short’s Jackie Rogers, Jr.; Dana Carvey’s Church Lady; Mike Myers’s Dieter; Chris Rock’s Nat X….I could go on, but honestly, the one who made me laugh the hardest was Chris Farley’s Matt Foley. Farley’s commitment was dangerous and brilliant.

  2. I would say either Tracy Morgan as Brian Fellow from Brian Fellow’s Safari Planet, or Darrel Hammond as Sean Connery on Celebrity Jeopardy.

  3. Kate McKinnon as Miss Rafferty (the UFO lady).

  4. I’ll offer my wife’s favorite character. Colleen Rafferty who is Kate McKinnon’s trailer park lady that often abducted by aliens or moved through time. And always loses her pants.

  5. Bill Murray’s Nick the Lounge singer. Best of its kind and defined his persona.

  6. Stefon is a great choice. Not only because he didn’t have a single bad appearance, but there was also that subtle plot line throughout that ended with him marrying Seth Meyers at a wedding attended by all of the weird characters he’d described through the years.

  7. I’m just a simple man, and this magic box frightens and confuses me! My primitive mind can’t grasp where the pictures and the words are coming from. But there’s one thing I DO know: Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer is a great dark horse candidate for best recurring character because he works as straight comedy and as deeper social satire, and because Phil Hartman managed to make him completely unlikeable and yet always entertaining.

  8. OLD SCHOOL SNL Faves:
    Father Guido Sarducci
    Joe Piscapo’s Sinatra
    Roseanne Rosannadanna
    Mary Katherine Gallagher
    Mr Robinson’s neighborhood

  9. it would probably change if you asked me again tomorrow. Stefon is pretty great, maybe a close second. but right now I’m thinking either “Drunk Uncle” or “The Girl at a Party You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation With”.

  10. Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer is just a silly idea that Hartman made so amazing, much like his Anal Retentive Chef. I love Deandre Cole from “What Up with That?” for the same reason – same joke each time, but always delivered perfectly (with Bill Hader’s Lindsey Buckingham and Jason Sudeikis’s b-boy dancer to add to it). Farley’s Matt Foley is up there too for his all-in delivery, as is Kristen Wiig’s fast-talking Judy Grimes. I also loved Tracy Morgan’s Astronaut Jones more for the timing of it (the long theme song, the childlike start, the sudden shift, and then the credits).

    I dunno. I would say that the joy I get from another appearance from Deandre Cole probably makes him my favorite.

  11. Wayne and Garth. They were just cool, likeable and funny guys who liked to talk about music and goof around. Always a fun sketch.

  12. The Kate McKinnon character who was abducted by aliens hands down. When she put her face in Ryan Gosling’s ass… Gets me every time.
