Saturday Night Live had already mastered the Jeopardy! parody. Nearly 20 years ago, Will Ferrell played a frustrated Alex Trebek struggling to work with a hopeless collection of Celebrity Jeopardy! contestants, led by Darrell Hammond as a crass Sean Connery.
On Saturday, SNL found a new way to have fun with the trivia game: Black Jeopardy!
Kennan Thompson hosted as Darnell Hayes, AKA, “Alex Treblack,” and presented categories such as “It’s Been A Minute,” “Pssh,” and a favorite of Louis C.K.’s character, “White People.”
C.K. plays an African-American Studies professor who believes he can compete on the show. Watch the video below to see how he fares.
