Here's How Kim Kardashian's Monologue On 'SNL' Went
Kim Kardashian finally made her Saturday Night Live hosting debut this weekend. Curious to see how she fared as a comedy performer? Here's a recap of Kardashian's SNL monologue, which you can also watch below.
Kim Kardashian's career has taken her many places, including everywhere from reality TV to the Forbes billionaires list and even the White House. But the star had never hosted Saturday Night Live until this weekend.
The 40-year-old made her SNL debut and kicked things off with a monologue that included jokes about her famous looks, the Kardashian family, O.J. Simpson, and her ex Kanye West.

Highlights include a joke about "K" names in the Kardashian family and how Kim's mom Kris Jenner was wise not to name a daughter Karen.
"It's really impressive my mom didn't pick Karen. I mean somehow she just knew," Kim says, before the punchline: "I don't know how she saw that one coming and not Caitlyn."
Another good zinger went: "Now I know we're divided as a country, but I'd love America to come together. Which I why I'm here to announce I'm running for..." she says, before quickly adding:
"I'm just kidding guys. I'm not running for president. We can't have three failed politicians in the family."
Of course, her ex Kanye West's run for president in 2020 was a total failure, and her former stepfather Caitlyn Jenner had little success in her try for California governor this year.
Kardashian was the latest big-name and somewhat-unlikely star to hit the SNL stage, after Tesla CEO Elon Musk also debuted on the sketch comedy show earlier this year.
