‘Weekend Update’ Says Goodbye to Stefon with Style

Last night’s Ben Affleck-hosted Saturday Night Live meant it was the farewell show for Fred Armisen and Bill Hader. Both have been on the program for many years, and each have a very important place in the sketch variety show’s history. Perhaps the bigger deal though might have been this meant the recurring character of Stefon at the Weekend Update desk would be lost for who knows how long. That said, it was worth the over the top sendoff they did for the character with Seth Meyers last night, and we have the footage here today. Was this better than the Kristen Wiig goodbye last year? Maybe, but that is only because the patrons from all of New York’s hottest clubs showed up.
