The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with Kumail Nanjiani

Kumail Nanjiani — who wrote and starred in The Big Sick, released this summer — technically made his second appearance on SNL last night. In 2008, the Pakistan-born actor had a part in the James Franco-hosted episode of the series as an “Indian reporter.” But last night was Nanjiani’s time to shine. His comedy style is warm and enthusiastic, but razor-sharp. SNL underused Nanjiani’s talents, but he was still a stand-out in every sketch and should have an open invite to return to the show in the future. See how it all went down last night, below.
