Jay Pharoah in Arlington: What You're In For This Weekend (Video)

Last season was a strange one on Saturday Night Live: a lot of repeat sketches, some lackluster hosts, the usual misfires from the Lonely Island crew, some new cast members clumsily finding their way, and the continued strange existence of Abby Elliot, who, outside of her opening-credit sexy-hair tussling thing, seems to be struggling to fit in. (Stefon's club reviews made it all worth it, of course, but that's a separate post.)

Even Jay Pharoah, the most celebrated of the newcomers, didn't have a great season. He seemed to only show up when one of his many celebrity impressions could be worked in, and sometimes even that felt forced. But the guy can mimic a star, and that's what folks at the Arlington Improv are going to get this weekend, when Pharoah takes his impression-heavy act on stage.
