We've been saying for months that Saturday Night Live is tragically under-using its best comic, (who also happens to be the show's first out cast member), Kate McKinnon. Well, judging by this weekend's episode, SNL finally got the message. McKinnon appeared in a majority of sketches, and pretty much owned every single one of them. That's no small task, considering Saturday's host was the larger-than-life Vince Vaughn. 

McKinnon and Vaughn got up close and (grossly) personal in a skit called "Last Call," where each played the sad closers at a bar, trying to convince themselves — and each other — that it's a good idea to go home together. But judging by this makeout session, that might not be the case. Naturally, we wish it had been McKinnon and Nasim Pedrad or Cecily Strong at last call, but we'll take what we can get. Watch the sketch below, where McKinnon demonstrates some impressive tongue control...

In a slightly less squick-inducing moment, McKinnon also appeared on Weekend Update with Seth Meyers, as Marina Chapman, the woman who claims she was raised by monkeys. McKinnon is at her slapstick best in this bit, and we're seriously impressed that Meyers could keep an almost-straight face as McKinnon screeches about the desk. Watch McKinnon monkey around below:
