Watch Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer Hit the Streets in ‘SNL’ Filming
SNL isn’t always one to follow expectations, but with Melissa McCarthy hosting full-time after three Sean Spicer appearances, you knew they’d go all out. Watch McCarthy take Spicey to the streets in an elaborate SNL production setup for the weekend.
Early Friday saw a number of social media posts (h/t The Hill) observing McCarthy in full Sean Spicer get-up, riding the character’s motorized podium through busy New York streets. It isn’t clear if the scene will feature into a digital short, or perhaps something for the cold open, but have a look regardless:
Not including Spicey’s brief cameo in the most recent promo, the Melissa McCarthy impression has made three appearances to date, including its original incarnation, the following week’s cold-open (with the motorized podium), and a recent Easter bit shot from Los Angeles. McCarthy’s fifth official hosting is expected to be a doozy for Spicer, given recent headlines that saw the beleaguered Press Secretary hiding
in near bushes to avoid press inquiry of James Comey’s firing.
You can check out promos for this weekend’s SNL below (including new ones with musical guest HAIM), and stay tuned for the full Spicey sketch this Saturday.
