Louis CK Played Lincoln on SNL Last Night

If you saw Louis CK's concert in Dallas two weekends ago, his monologue on last night's Saturday Night Live may have been a bit disappointing. He did about seven minutes of material from his current tour, basically word for word.

But he more than made up for it two sketches later, with the bit you see above. It starts with him saddling up to a bar in a top hat and dark beard (Is he ... Lincoln?) and making small talk with a black guy (Oh my God, he's Lincoln). It only gets better from there.
