  • 2 months ago
Former NFL player Shannon Sharpe has emerged as a true media personality, who enjoys chatting it up with notable Hollywood celebrities on his podcast. Weeks ago, he participated in what now appears to be his biggest interview yet – a conversation with comedian Katt Williams. The two-and-a-half hour discussion made waves across the web and, as of this writing, it has over 53 million views on YouTube alone. Sharpe’s video has been so popular, in fact, that it’s since become fodder for "Saturday Night Live." The sketch comedy series roasted the entire situation in a sketch, and Sharpe has since shared his thoughts.

SNL Season 49’s latest host and musical guest were Jacob Elordi and Reneé Rapp, respectively, this past weekend. Apart from Elordi’s various sketches, it was the Shannon Sharpe-related one that truly seems to have grabbed the public’s attention. It featured cast members Devon Walker as Sharpe and Ego Nwodim as Katt Williams, and they simply skewered the widely buzzed about conversation.The two actors dressed in outfits that were virtually similar to the real ones worn by their characters and firmly mimicked their cadences. On the whole, the sketch played on the major claims Williams made during the real interview, just taking them to new and humorously unrealistic heights.
