SNL’s Tribute to Ukraine

A choir appeared in the beginning of the episode and sang a traditional Ukrainian folk song. In addition to that, some candles were used to spell Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine.

Comedian John Mulaney was the host of the latest episode, marking his 5th time as the show’s host. He delivered a very funny yet deeply personal monologue on the show. He addressed his addiction, his son’s birth along with his rehabilitation. This tribute is because of the country being under attack by it’s neighbour Russia.

Mulaney and his Monologue

Mulaney delivered an effortless and hilarious monologue. However, neither he nor any other cast member of SNL addressed the curry situation in Ukraine. Probably because of the political environment. The Emmy award winner talked about his drug addiction, his intervention, that took place in December 2020,with friends present over a Zoom call as well.

He then talked about breaking up with his drug dealer in the form of a funny anecdote. The show did a good job by addressing, and respecting the events in Ukraine by providing a native group a stage.
