‘SNL’ Host Kate McKinnon Reprises ‘Whiskers R We’ Character Alongside Billie Eilish – Deadline

Kate McKinnon had an 11-year run on Saturday Night Live and created many memorable characters throughout her time on the NBC sketch show.

As the Barbie actor made her return to the late-night show for the first time as host, it wasn’t surprising she would reprise one of her recurring roles.

On Saturday’s episode, McKinnon reprised her role of Barbara DeDrew in the recurring sketch “Whiskers R We” which always features the guest host as the co-host. In this case, because McKinnon was the host of the week, she got the help of musical guest Billie Eilish to make an appearance on the sketch, playing the role of Paw-bree Hep-Purrn.

The recurring sketch features a lot of puns, and this episode was focused on showing off the cats available for adoption amid the “Holiday Cat-tacular.” As the sketch continues, there are many sexual innuendos thrown along the way between the two co-hosts.

What makes the sketch even more hilarious is how unpredictable the cats can be and how they can throw the co-hosts off their game, causing them to break on live television.
