‘Saturday Night Live’ channels ‘Les Mis’ in ‘Diner Lobster’ sketch
Many diners seem to have absurdly long menus with far too many things on it, sometimes including lobster. And you should never get the diner lobster.
In the “Diner Lobster” Saturday Night Live sketch, Pete Davidson orders a lobster at Big Nick’s Greek Diner, much to the surprise of his friend Chris Redd and waiter/host John Mulaney. He’s apparently the first person to ever actually order the lobster there.
That agéd lobster, played by Kenan Thompson, busts into a parody of a song from the musical Les Misérables, mourning his own imminent demise after living such a long life.
The sketch gets crazier and crazier as the the diner evolves more and more into the set of Les Mis, until Davidson finally changes his mind.
