For the first time in 24-years, Adam Sandler went back to where his career began and hosted Saturday Night Live. And while his debut had more than its share of hilarious moments, it also had a very sentimental one-when Sandler performed a touching tribute to his late friend and former SNL castmate Chris Farley. While the show overall was a bit so-so-whoever turned Beck Bennett into Thanos for the cold open deserves a massive raise or to be fired immediately, I can't decide which-Sandler did close out the night with a surprisingly poignant, touching tribute to the late, great Chris Farley.
SNL's official account shared the song, which has more than 7 million views. "It was so sad to tell ... Maybe they were sick of Canteen Boy, but I think they just hate the jews", Sandler sings in his trademark fashion.
"I was sacked, I was fired, NBC said that I was done", he says. It was around this time that old castmate Chris Rock came on stage to help sing about how he was sacked too (and about how he joined In Living Color and it was then taken off the air three weeks after).

We have no way but to resist and unite", Rouhani said in a televised speech on Saturday. However, the United States did not renew two waivers.
Sandler joined SNL in 1990, first as a writer and later becoming a cast member.
During the show, Sandler re-enacted his Opera Man character to parody the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates and President Trump. Sandler, gave the tribute in his return to the show Saturday night. Sandler had a lot of old characters he could have brought back, and I'm glad it was this one-it was much better political humor than the usual SNL cold opens. When reminded by Sandler that he hadn't actually been fired, Davidson quipped, "I wasn't?"
Sandler joked about his firing earlier in the night on Saturday when he and Rock sang a duet about getting axed during the monologue. They wanted more and his movies went on to gross more than 4 billion at the box office. Fellow alums Jimmy Fallon and Kristen Wiig also appeared in sketches alongside Sandler to add to the nostalgia, including playing his parents at a Sandler family reunion.
