WATCH: Ellen Loves Fellow Lesbian Kate McKinnon’s “SNL” Impression Of Her

Sure, comedians can wisecrack till the cows come home, but some times the laughter stops if the joke’s on them. Not so with Ellen Degeneres, who applauded Saturday Night Live‘s Kate McKinnon, the long-running series’ first openly lesbian cast member, on her remarkable impression of her last weekend.

Readers might be familiar with McKinnon from her work on The Big Gay Sketch Show – particularly the hilarious Fitzwilliam, the effeminate schoolboy who wanted a lovely vagina more than anything in the world.

Bravo to McKinnon not only for making herstory, but also daring to fill the giant shoes left vacant by Kristen Wiig. Getting a thumbs-up from America’s preeminent lesbian and official funniest person is sure to help.

      This was hilarious, I don’t why I miss it. I love these two funny-gals, they are amazing.

      McKinnon’s portrayal wasn’t that funny. It made me uncomfortable. It accentuated an edge that Ellen just doesn’t have. That is sort of similar to that dip from FOX who referred to Maddow as an angry, young man. That yapper poodle FOX bimbo likely has tufts of fur around her ankles that she needs to shave before layering on the pancake make-up every morning. I don’t know McKinnon’s work, as TV is not huge in our household, but this was not funny.

      Ellen has had homophobes and their supporters on her show. She has failed us She also encourages sexist attitudes to women.

      The segment was funny because they hit it regarding how shallow and pointless her talk show is not to mention how not funny she is.
