So amazing! First, Ellen DeGeneres recreated the ‘Damn, Daniel!’ video on Feb. 24, and then, she capped off Wednesday’s episode with a special appearance by ‘Saturday Night Live’ star Kate McKinnon, who nailed a spot-on impression of the talk show host. Watch it here!
Ellen DeGeneres better be careful or Saturday Night Live star Kate McKinnon might steal her identity! Kate appeared on the Feb. 24 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she gave a hilarious impression of the talk show host. Watch the video here.
“I love her so much. She impersonates me on Saturday Night Live. She’s beautiful, she’s charming, she’s smart, she’s hilarious — she’s me, is what she is,” Ellen, 58, said on the Feb. 24 episode of her show, while introducing Kate. “She really is hilarious, but it’s weird to have somebody do impressions of you, because you hear it and you’re like, ‘Well, that’s such an exaggeration. I mean, it’s funny, but that doesn’t sound like me at all.’ And then the next day your friends call you up and they’re like, ‘Did you see Kate on SNL? She sounded exactly like you.’ She does exaggerate. She always says, ‘I’m Ellen! I’m Ellen!’ I don’t even know what that is. ‘I’m Ellen!'”
Then, Kate came out and took over Ellen’s monologue. “I’m Ellen, I got this blondie,” she said. “So step aside!”
“Hi, y’all. Happy Wednesday. I gotta tell you about something that happened last night up at the house. [Portia de Rossi] and I got a puppy and we named it Kid to make it sound like we have a kid. Funnily enough a kid is also a baby goat. And I love baby goats! I love ’em! I love baby goats!” she joked, while pretending to be Ellen. “True story: I once went on a ski vacation with a baby goat.”
Kate continued with her story and joked around a bit with Ellen before they both took a moment to dance with the audience! It was epic. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Kate first impersonated the talk show host on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April 2013.
