It’s Hard Not To Laugh At Jay Pharoah’s Shaq Impersonation On ‘Saturday Night Live’

  • Eric Goldschein

Kenan Thompson has been doing an impersonation of Charles Barkley for Weekend Update on “Saturday Night Live” for awhile now, so we’re glad Jay Pharoah is finally joining him as Shaquille “Shaq” O’Neal. Basically the entire sketch revolves around Shaq being a cross-eyed doofus, which is kind of unfair, but also hilarious.

Is Pharoah’s Shaq better than Charles Barkley’s own take? Well, video of Barkley as Shaq appears to be taken down, but the best bit is still online, so there’s that.


That wasn’t turrible, especially by current “SNL” standards.
