Eli Manning hosted “Saturday Night Live” and put together an impressive performance on Saturday. His Little Brothers sketch (seen above), was probably the highlight of the program. Similar to older brother Peyton’s United Way sketch, this one featured Eli working with young kids. Eli, who was picked on by his brothers growing up, started a club to protect little brothers from their big brothers, and the results were pretty hilarious.
Eli also mocked Brett Favre’s sexting in another sketch. This one took place in a court room setting, was quite a bit longer and not as funny, though it did have its moments. The video is below:
Some of the better texting lines from Eli were: “What are those big boobs of yours doing right now?” and “You going out after? I’m having a beer near the hospital with some bros. Let me know if you wanna hook up hehe.”
Manning performed well in the sketches, likely because they were filmed ahead of time. He struggled somewhat with the live monologue. Manning stumbled on his lines a little, and he didn’t always roll with the crowd reaction. He was a little choppy and not quite as funny performing live.
Overall, it was a strong performance by the Giants quarterback. And most importantly, he gave us two fantastic images:
