"SNL"’s Kate McKinnon does a spot-on impersonation of Robert Durst

"I'm from Scarsdale. I have black eyes. One time I chopped up my best friend"

What if the multi-millionaire real-estate heir-turned-murderer Robert Durst was just chillin' in the audience at an improv show? That's the premise of "Sketch Show" from last night's "SNL," which finds "The Jinx" subject front and center on a comedy club stage after a member of the improv group (Aidy Bryant) calls on him while doing crowd work.

Durst, played impeccably by Kate McKinnon, is asked to introduce himself to the audience and, between maniacal blinking, states: "I'm from Scarsdale. I have black eyes. One time I chopped up my best friend." The group then scrambles to extrapolate something funny from Durst's earnest-as-hell intro for their sketch.


In a comedy club, no one believes you when you say you "killed them all, of course."
