Waking up with Kimye SNL Skit starring Jay Pharoah, Nasim Perdad and Lady Gaga


We hope this skit becomes a regular on SNL. "Waking Up With Kimye" is a new talk show starring Kanye West (Jay Pharoah) and Kim Kardashian (Nasim Perdrad). Kanye refers to Kim as "The Michael Jordan of wearing clothes." Lady Gaga plays Karen, a nerdy Apple store genius who was just there to fix Kim's laptop, but ended up being their first guest. West grills her on her daring to call herself a "genius." "And this somehow makes you deserving of the title 'genius?'" West asks. "You do not deserve the title of genius! You can't just throw that term around. Mark Zuckerberg is a genius. I am a genius. I am a God." West also berates Karen for her terrible fashion sense. But Karen is unmoved, noting that she is wearing her work uniform. Karen responds, "First of all, this is my work uniform. But honestly I don't care about fashion. I think people who try too hard with their outfits are maybe hiding something. Like, c'mon, dress like a person." This got a big laugh as it was coming from the woman who wore a meat dress and emerged from an egg at an awards show. Take a look:
