Saturday Night Live opened its 46th season with a parody of Tuesday’s US presidential debate. The NBC late-night sketch series, which returned to a studio after COVID-19 halted filming, began with an almost 14-minute sketch featuring several well-known stars. Alec Baldwin played president Donald Trump before his COVID-19 diagnosis , Jim Carrey featured as the president’s election rival former vice president Joe Biden and Maya Rudolph made a cameo appearance as Kamala Harris. Comedian and actor Chris Rock hosted the show. The comedy performance satirised the first election debate – which was characterised by its name calling, insults and the two politicians consistently speaking over each other.

Meanwhile, Carrey’s Biden tried to hold his anger – breathing into a brown paper bag and talking to himself.
