Watch Jacob Elordi's SNL Sketches and Monologue from January 20

The Saltburn actor showcased his comedy chops in the first SNL of 2024—watch all of Jacob Elordi's Saturday Night Live sketches here. 

By Samantha Vincenty

Australian actor Jacob Elordi hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time on January 20, showcasing comedy chops that those who know him from his roles in drama projects like Saltburn, Priscilla, and Euphoria may not have had the chance to see until now. As it turns out, Elordi's silly side is a joy to watch (see the "Entertainment Tonight Lip-Readers," featuring musical guest Reneé Rapp, as a prime example). The actor also proved a great sport in several sketches that placed his tall-dark-and-handsome good looks front and center as his scene partners fawned over him. 

How to Watch

Watch Saturday Night Live Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.  

Mean Girls star Rapp wasn't the evening's only surprise guest. Rachel McAdams, who originally created the role of Regina George in the original 2004 Mean Girls, popped up to introduce Rapp's track from the film's soundtrack, "Not My Fault," with Megan Thee Stallion stepping out of a glittery pink cake to deliver her verse (and a dance break alongside Rapp!) McAdams later reappeared in a sketch that might have poked gentle fun at Elordi's seemingly-instant rise to fame—and found McAdams playing a very meta character.

Trump Courthouse Cold Open

Trump Courthouse Cold Open

Cast member James Austin Johnson's astoundingly-accurate impression of former president Donald Trump was particularly on point in this cold open. Satirizing Trump's remarks during one of his many current court cases (columnist E. Jean Carroll's defamation trial), the sketch also featured Chloe Fineman as Trump's lawyer Alina Habba. 

"I want to make this perfectly clear: I am new at this, and I am learning," Fineman's Habba told the press.

Jacob Elordi's Monologue

Jacob Elordi Monologue

Elordi's humble monologue ("You might know me from Saltburn—not from seeing the film, just from seeing the TikToks") evolved into a Q&A session featuring cast members Sarah Sherman, Bowen Yang, and Kenan Thompson. Yang, who was born in Elordi's country of origin, also treated the audience to his "Australian accent."

Crown Your Short King

Crown Your Short King

In this Bachelor-esque franchise that somehow doesn't exist in real life yet, a woman (Chloe Fineman) is about to make her final pick between three short suitors (Bowen Yang, Marcello Hernandez, and Molly Kearney). Then a towering hunk (aka Jacob Elordi) shows up

Did Katt Williams just replace Dionne Warwick as Ego Nwodim's most iconic celebrity impression? A must-watch for anyone who watched Shannon Sharpe's viral interview with Williams. 

Entertainment Tonight Lip-Readers

Entertainment Tonight Lip-Readers

Elordi and Yang make a very funny pair as they play lip-reading experts who aren't so good at their jobs—and need special assistance from their "little lesbian intern" Reneé Rapp.

Those bowling alley videos that mark how many pins you knocked down have never been so gripping ("Stuck Ball" for the win).

Alaska Airlines Ad

Alaska Airlines Ad

In what feels like the successor to Season 48's popular "Southwest Airlines Announcement" sketch, this Alaska Airlines commercial parody sells customers on a new slogan following their famous door incident: "You didn’t die, and you got a cool story!" 

Acting Class

Bowen Plays an acting coach who counsels an actress who strongly resembles Rachel McAdams (played by...you guessed it). Elordi's character is a famous actor who fails to inspire the students when they learn that he instantly got his big break by walking through an airport while hot.
