Saturday Night Live alum Dana Carvey came back to the late night sketch show this past Saturday to host the show.
Carvey had a lot of great characters as an SNL castmember from 1986 to 1993, like The Church Lady and Hans the bodybuilder (who wants to pump… you up), but the comedian is best known for playing long-haired metalhead Garth Algar, co-host of the Aurora, Illinois, cable access show Wayne’s World (party time, excellent!). To open Saturday’s show, Carvey reunited with his Wayne’s World counterpart Mike Myers for a special Oscar Picks episode.
Watch the Wayne’s World skit here below.
Wayne’s World has always been one of my favorite reoccurring SNL skits and as a teen related to my fellow metalheads. The first Wayne’s World movie is a classic, and I dig the sequel too, so it was great to see Wayne and Garth back in action. And seriously, when you see Myers and Carvey as these characters, it’s like time stood still, they look the same after all these years.
