Matt Damon parodies David Cameron in SNL Brexit spoof
|TELEGRAPH REPORTERS|AIWA! NO!|Saturday Night Live poked fun at Theresa May’s difficult week, David Cameron and Brexit in a sketch performed by series regular Kate McKinnon and guest star Matt Damon, last night.
The skit, titled “Happy Christmas, Britain!” opens with the Prime Minister demonstrating her famous dance moves, flanked by four dancing policemen, before opening her speech with: “What a dreadful week it’s been. My Brexit deal is falling apart, I almost got voted out and no one in the world likes me at all. But it’s still Christmas so let’s try to have some cheer tonight, shall we?”
She’s joined by a high-foreheaded Matt Damon as David Cameron, “the man who called for the Brexit vote, then when it passed, he bounced and left me to clean up his mess”.
“You look well rested,” she observes, before he tells her that he’s just returned from a relaxing holiday in the Maldives.
“You know what’s funny?” he says. “People hate me but they really hate you. Even though I did Brexit. I mean you’ve got to laugh.”
The pair are then joined by Elton John (played by Aidy Bryant), who delivers a pile of presents that all turn out to be faeces, and Voldemort: “the one person in Britain more reviled than me”.
The show also sent up Donald Trump in a cold open sketch that spoofed It’s a Wonderful Life, imagining how the world would look had Trump, played once again by Alec Baldwin, lost the election. Robert De Niro also made an appearance as Robert Mueller, who is far happier now that he had the time to see his grandson.
