“Watch me punk Stephen King.” -Maya Angelou

Somehow, this sketch gets funnier every time I watch it.

The premise: Maya Angelou has a prank show and she does it in a very … Maya Angelou way.

Juxtaposing Angelou’s gravitas and dignified cadence with a wacky prank show was a genius idea and I want to hug whomever in the SNL writers’ room came up with it.

Also, Bill Hader plays Stephen King in it.
