Best skit: “United Way”
Professional athletes tend to shine as hosts (except for Michael Phelps, sorry dude), and Peyton Manning was the best. Something about the Broncos quarterback’s largely deadpan voice makes him incredible to watch. Manning’s best sketch is a commercial for United Way, in which he volunteers to teach a bunch of kids how to play football, except he makes a terrible coach and just yells at them the entire time. At least three kids get hit in the back of the head with a football. Manning has them learning to break into cars, run from the cops and never snitch. (“I’ll kill a snitch. I’m not saying I have, I’m not saying I haven’t, you know what I mean.”) He orders one kid to lock himself in the park’s port-a-potty for 20 minutes.
