Comedian Nate Bargatze Top Sketches from SNL

Last week, Nate Bargatze hosted Saturday Night Live with musical guest Foo Fighters. The show celebrated Halloween with clever and witty sketches about the holiday. This was the comedian’s first time hosting and Foo Fighter’s ninth time performing. Some may say that it was an emotional performance without their late drummer, Taylor Hawkins. Saturday Night Live pulled out all the stops to make this a great episode, including numerous celebrity cameos. It was a surprise to see actor Christopher Walken, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, and singer H.E.R.

Who Is Nate Bargatze?

Nate Bargatze is a Grammy-nominated stand-up comedian from Nashville, Tennessee. He is known for his clean, relatable comedy that appeals to audiences of all ages. His comedy is often observational and self-deprecating, and he often talks about his family, his experiences as a touring comedian, and the everyday absurdities of life. The 44-year-old comic currently has 4 specials out including, “The Tennessee Kid” (2017), “The Greatest Average American” (2019), “Full Time Magic” (2021), and “Hello, World” (2023). All four specials are available on streaming platforms such as Amazon Prime, Netflix and more.

Saturday Night Live Halloween Special

Now that it’s Halloween season, Saturday Night Live is gearing up for its annual Halloween special. This tradition dates all the way back to the show’s first season in 1975. The sketches, parodies, and musical performances are all fun and spooky, and they help to create a sense of excitement for the holiday. I look forward to it every year. These Saturday Night Live Halloween sketches are a must-watch for anyone who loves the spooky holiday. And it’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit. I hope to have introduced you to ones you’ve never seen before!

The first-time Saturday Night Live host will give you some belly laughs! Watch Nate Bargatze’s top sketches below!


  • Monologue

    This was Nate Bargatze’s first time hosting Saturday Night Live and he knocked his monologue out of the park. He performed his own stand-up routine that caused the audience to erupt into belly laughs.

  • Chef Show

    What happens when “wrong” chef wins a cooking show? It causes for Padma Lakshi to be very unhappy.

  • Hallmark Horror

    We all know how ridiculous Hallmark movies have become, and yet, we still love them. This spoof follows a city girl returning to her small hometown to eventually fall in love with the neighborhood serial killer. A true love story.

  • Washington's Dream

    Have you ever wondered why America follows the Imperial system? Saturday Night Live found real footage of the conversation George Washington had with his soldiers discussing how they should measure.

  • Lake Beach

    When you don’t live by an ocean, you spend your time at the Lake Beach. You never know what will happen at the lake beach, but you know it’ll be fun!

  • Airplane

    Saturday Night Live argues that a doctor is the number one profession. But what is number two? Lawyer? Mother? Saturday Night Live is stern that it’s definitely not teacher.
