Tiffany Haddish opens with hilarious monologue, 'SNL' writers fail with skits

Sexual harassment was a running theme on this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live, echoing the headlines for current events.

Of course Weekend Update had to put the final nail in the coffin, "Well it's a good weekend to stay inside since it's 20 degrees out and everyone you've ever heard of is a sex monster". "I Googled myself, it said I'm worth $2 million". On Friday, C.K. said the claims were true in a lengthy statement, and he was swiftly dropped by his representatives.

She also spoke about sexual harassment allegations that are sweeping through Hollywood by saying, "If you got your thing-thing out and she got all her clothes on, you're wrong!" The latter remark came as another photo of Louis C.K. flashed on screen. If you got your thing-thing out and she's got all her clothes on, you're wrong.

She played Cardi B in one of the show's impression-filled faux-audition reels, this time around for Lion King, with Leslie Jones' Oprah, Cecily Strong's Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alex Moffat's Kit Harington, among others. "What is the appropriate way to handle a workplace relationship?" she asked.

Haddish cracked jokes about her newfound wealth (or lack thereof), her childhood growing up in foster care, breaking the fashion taboo of wearing the same dress in public a couple of times, and all of the sexual assault allegations in the news.

As she reaches for a bottle off to the side and starts spraying its contents into her mouth, Strong's character responds, "Yes, such an easy question".

The next question involves a prop doll. "But I'm sure I'll be back next week and the week after that, forever and ever because all of this isn't just a scandal".

Tiffany Haddish's first hosting gig on Saturday Night Live went super well, and as Deadline reports, Haddish made history "by becoming the first black female stand-up comic to host the show in its 43 seasons." Wow.

Chance the Rapper will host "SNL" the following week.
