‘Saturday Night Live’: Larry David Resurrects Bernie Sanders Impression for ‘Price is Right’ Sketch (Watch)

Larry David hosted the Nov. 5 episode of “Saturday Night Live” and it didn’t take long for him to bust out his Bernie Sanders impression.

In the first sketch after his opening monologue, David embodied the politician once again, though not for a skewer of hot button topics but instead a turn on a celebrity partner edition of “The Price Is Right.” Paired up with Pete Davidson, David’s Sanders was characteristically indignant about the state of affairs on the show and in society.

When asked to offer a best guess on an item’s cost, he quickly retorted, “I’ll tell you what I think, Drew. The real problem in this country is American consumerism. Who needs a washer? When I need to wash the one suit I own, I just wait until it rains, I stand outside for 15 minutes, and then I jog behind a bus until the exhaust blows me dry.”

The “Price is Right” sketch also saw episode musical guest Miley Cyrus playing a contestant, Alec Baldwin as Tony Bennett, Beck Bennett as Drew Carey, Melissa Villaseñor as Arian Grande, Cecily Strong as Sofia Vergara, Chris Redd as Lil Wayne, Kate McKinnon as Tilda Swinton, Alex Moffat as Chris Hemsworth and a special guest appearance by Liam Hemsworth as himself.

Watch the sketch below:

Saturday Night Live is on Saturdays at 11:30 pm ET / 8:30 pm PT on NBC.
