We all knew he would be funny, but no one expected that Hart’s episode would be one of the highest rated SNL shows in recent years.
What aided the ratings was Hart’s parody of the AMC hit series, The Walking Dead (one of my personal favorites). If you’ve never watched the show, you won’t know why this is so funny, but all you dead heads out there… prepare for a laugh!
When the group turns their backs to discuss if they should allow Kevin into the group, he’s bitten by a ‘walker’ (another term for zombie). Totally unaware of the fresh bite, the group allows Kevin to become “one of them.”
“What do you mean by ‘one of them?’ Oh my God. This is so racist right now. I see what it is. When someone comes from a different cultural background, they’re automatically a zombie?” Kevin says, prompting the group to apologize and insist they’re not racists.

Hart portrayed a guy transforming into a zombie and blaming the show’s core charaters for snubbing him out of racism. Sketch MVP goes to Nasim Pedrad as 12-year-old Carl, who talked about feeling “emotionally fine” after killing, but Hart’s “Thriller” dance made him a close runner-up.
