  • I’m surprised the Israel joke didn’t spark any “#AntiSemitism” Oh wait Netanyahu did Yeah that wasn’t gone go unseen

  • Not one funny thing, but so many racist things!

  • Jew joke was on point and funny. Good job guys

  • Funny how their comedy has rolled extreme left with the so called woke culture....should it not be going in the other direction?....like the Origional SNL would have,,,

  • It’s about time people are slowly waking up

  • No Jew joke SNL

  • Very brave to make jokes of the Catholic church and Israel. How about give it a try with Iran and having fun of Mahomet?

  • Antisemitism still exists. SNL is proof of this.

    • @Bob Webster That has nothing to do with the video. The video states Israel has vaccinated half the population of Israel and makes the assumption that they aren't vaccinating the arabs there, which they in fact are. Your article discusses that now in addition to vaccinating the people of Israel, Israel is also offering vaccines to another nation: Palestine. This only paints Israel in a better light, where as SNL is implying the Jews are selfish vaccine thieves.

    • They just told the truth, which we now know was correct.apnews.com/article/middle-east-israel-coronavirus-pandemic-9cf252d0a19c1e9b1f9079ce8c203d3b

  • Racist Anti Semite

  • Hi good nice video

  • God I was tearing up when I heard the Israel joke Lmaooooooooo

  • Hebron in Israel is Literally an apartheid city where the indigenous 2nd class race Palestinians as Israel sees them can't enter certain shops and must stay on one side of the street. search: Richard gere in Hebron.

  • “The Berenstain bears kill Osama Bin Laden”

  • Republicans got so offended over Che's joke about Israel (surprise, surprise) but then a recent article pointed out, basically that Israel was not providing vaccine to Palestinians in the region, choosing instead to send them to foreign allies. In other words, when Che said they only vaccinated the Jewish half, he was right.

    • following the Oslo Accords, Palestinians are in full control of their healthcare (1995 Interim Agreement, annex I, article 17). Israel has given the right to be vaccinated to ALL Israelis, jews, muslims, christians and whoever else alike. Israel cannot just take over the healthcare systems in Palestine as it would be illegal. The Palestinian Authority has to ask for their help first. The Palestinian Authority also stopped a plane load of medical supplies from the UAE from landing only because the plane had previously landed in Israel.

  • Michael is so much funnier than these skits try to make him to be

  • The truth hurts. #IsraeliCrimes

    • @Another High Amazing how a little bit of minimum research blows these allegations out of the water. Not that anti-Israel folks would ever bother.

    • what crime? the PA never asked for vaccine help. www.jpost.com/israel-news/palestinians-we-didnt-ask-israel-for-covid-19-vaccine-652703

  • Israel got butt hurt over a joke... Omg 🤣Grow some balls

  • Watch George Carlin on germs an the immune system, It might Save your life!!!

  • Israel is an apartheid state.

    • @Aleema A actually, it means to treat a group differently with in one's country. 43% of Arab citizens were vaccinated at the time of the lie/joke. and the PA chose from the very start of the pandemic NOT to ask for the vaccine help. www.jpost.com/israel-news/palestinians-we-didnt-ask-israel-for-covid-19-vaccine-652703

    • @Another High for someone who has travelled numerous times to Palestine, I know exactly what the term apartheid means. Israel use force to kick out Palestinians to make way for illegal Israeli settlements. Israel also prevents Palestinians from returning to their homes and lands (including millions of refugees living in exile). Denying Palestinians their right to freedom of movement those in Gaza Strip and West Bank. Segregation of buses, hospitals and list goes on. Facts. Israel is denying basic human rights and has broken numerous UN international laws.

    • so you don't understand what apartheid means. you have a long way to go.

  • I learn more about current events on these sketches than I do from actual news channels

  • The simp reference is nothing new, wtf. Its been around for prob more than a year, get with the times. And while I know they don't have much time to say it, theres def more explanation around being a simp that could even make his basic summary raise an eyebrow or 2.

  • thousands of Palestinians do not want the vaccine, 10,000 free vaccines were given to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, none of them want it though. You can't force them to get what they don't want. this joke could of just been left out.

    • Except of course that your version of events is total horseshit. Odd how now suddenly Israel is getting vaccines to the occupied territories. The joke pointed out an uncomfortable truth

  • Half of the country thinks Michael Che is funny, I'm guessing that's the anti-semitic side.

    • @Another High oh buttercup, somebody telling a truth about a secular government isn't anti-Semitic, as much as you want it to be. But keep virtue signaling. Amusingly you just "happen" to skip the point about Israeli criticism of Netanyahu and just go on the attack on a totally false premise. I guess when you've got nothing...

    • @Zweig Ackroyd ha, "various" lol!!! how about the PA never asked for vaccine help from Israel. or is that to simple for you?

    • @Zweig Ackroyd funny, you assume I am racist, and here you are on the web, going out of your way to protect an anti-semite. - keep trying, and try better next time.

    • @Another High And PS: Israel's own Health Ministry is urging Netanyahu's government to vaccinate those in the occupied territories. I guess the Health Ministry is staffed by anti-Semites in your view? Get real

    • ​@Another High Uh huh. Interesting how various human rights group in Israel tell a different story, as do the numbers as reported when not sanitized to place Netanyahu in a good light.

  • I don’t think the audience fully understood the no touching joke lmao

    • SNL is loosing their marbles. A bunch of racist anti-Semitic thugs.

  • how is this not banned on youtube how is a anti semitic joke is okay wonder if twitter pulled SNL off LOL wait that doesnt fit their narrative so thats why

    • @Zweig Ackroyd it was and and unfactual too: following the Oslo Accords, Palestinians are in full control of their healthcare (1995 Interim Agreement, annex I, article 17). Israel has given the right to be vaccinated to ALL Israelis, jews, muslims, christians and whoever else alike. Israel cannot just take over the healthcare systems in Palestine as it would be illegal. The Palestinian Authority has to ask for their help first. The Palestinian Authority also stopped a plane load of medical supplies from the UAE from landing only because the plane had previously landed in Israel.

    • @Steve Ramer Not remotely

    • @Zweig Ackroyd The Israel joke was not ?

    • Probably because it isn't remotely anti-Semitic, but nice try

  • The liberals can do no wrong,, The attacks on the white house are racist, and ALL WHITE, CONSERVATIVE. people are the same! But A group of people who terrorize neighborhoods, shut down freeways, hinder the general populations freedom of movement, destroys a persons livelihood, ARE DEEMED AS FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!!!! These jokes are inappropriate! Period!

  • NBC and SNL had no problem calling Gina Carano antisemetic for her post about how villifying your neighbors based on political beliefs is wrong Yet the very next week Michael Che makes a blatantly antisemetic joke. #FireMichaelChe #CancelSNL #SNLIsAntiSemetic #SNLIsRacist #NBCIsAntisemitic #NBCIsRacist

  • Chen's Israel joke is blatantly false. All Israelis--Jewish, Arab, Filipino, whatever--are entitled to the vaccine. The PA/Gaza are not part of Israel and have their own vaccine agreement. It's that simple.

    • Gaza with a population of 2 million Palestinians got 2k covid vaccines lol. Israel is violating human rights what’s new 🤷🏻‍♂️

  • SNL should not apologize for the Israel vaccine joke. It's the truth.

    • your ignorance is impressive. 43% of the Arab citizens were vaccinated at the time of the lie/joke. The Arabs outside of the country declined vaccine assistance from the earliest days of the vaccine. #TRUTH

    • It’s not

  • Anti-semite joke, anti-catholic joke, SNL is still a joke, no wonder nobody watches. Sad.

  • I miss alec baldwin already 😩

  • Colins white boy, he’s got no jokes, yet they put that fake laughter in the background, cmon dude, it does t matter if your white, come up with at least good material

  • “The Jewish half” is soo true yet sooo sad 😔

    • I like how he said "I'm guessing it was the Jewish half" . Just goes to show they are comics not journalists. A journalist would have found out the numbers

    • @Another High liar 🤥 liar 🤥 pants 🩲 on fire 🔥.

    • your ignorance is impressive. 43% of the Arab citizens were vaccinated at the time of the lie/joke. The Arabs outside of the country declined vaccine assistance from the earliest days of the vaccine. #TRUTH

    • @Thomas Stein X vaccinating everyone 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Stop 🛑 the BS. you know very well that’s not kosher!!!

    • @Combat Studios according to you or according to internationally recognized agreements?

  • My brother has a heart failure and till now he has not been vaccinated because he is a Palestinian. I am not antisemite and this is how this Israeli government is acting towards the other half of the population, discrimination and racism.

  • When does it get funny?

  • wow so funny, colin too bad your wife is Jewish. I bet scarlett johansen didn't appreciate the joke about Israel.

    • Israel doesn't represent all Jewish people.

  • Dumb and dumber. Which one is which, you decide.

  • SNL is loosing their marbles. A bunch of racist anti-Semitic thugs.

    • @Iron Knight Gaming The truth ? The truth that SNL is a racist organization infected to its core with racism and anti semitism.

    • The truth is anti semetic?

  • the only person ted cruz is a simp for is Donald Trump and the manifestation of his own personal gain

  • Someone tell me what the F*ck was funny about any of this crap? SNL isn't funny anymore. It hasn't been in decades. Anyone who laughs at this bilge needs their head examined.

  • SNL didn’t have to choose a side in the 80’s or 90’s because you were still allowed to have an opinion . The minute they throw some truth out there a college kid with no bills has a problem with it .

  • Oh well. Truth hurts. Yeah I said it. Thanky Michael💕

  • @0:54😂😂😂

  • People need to take a joke everyone now is always so serious and PC it's a Joke

  • Talk about self-entitlement! Over-privilege! I'm going to bet those "grandmothers" were not Black. Because WE don't look like grandmothers even when we are. You wouldn't believe my granddaughter is almost 22!😂😂

  • The gospel by which we're SAVED. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)(1) Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the GOSPEL (good news) which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; (2) By which also ye are SAVED, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain (self). (3) For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that CHRIST DIED for our SINS according to the scriptures; (4) And that he was BURIED, and that he ROSE AGAIN the THIRD DAY according to the scriptures. READ, UNDERSTAND, BELIEVE (from the heart by FAITH) and be SAVED

  • Where can I find The Bernstien bears kill Osama bin Ladin is hat next to wheres osama where at the end a troop of marines find him

  • Gen z needs to not be such over sensitive pussies

    • They're baby Karens and they don't even realise it

  • Interesting to use the black guy for the j tribe joke.

  • Berenstein or Berenstain??

  • Israel joke :)) sad but true and funny

  • I am from Russia and a lot of people here are avoiding getting the vaccine while you are committing frauds to get one :D

    • There’s a bunch of antivaxers here too

  • What if SNL just tried to be funny?

    • You’re mad

  • Have a laugh people Don’t take it to heart We gotta stop being so thinned skinned

  • I'm old enough to remember when SNL was actually funny,...

    • You’re mad

  • Is it me or did SNL get slot better since they haven't been so focused on politics?

  • No, don't apply that term to Cruz. First because it enables that jackass to keep on passing off the blame to his wife and kids,instead of being held personally accountable. Second, because it is and was a kink term that has been repurposed into a slur by exploitative and emotionally damaged con men who charge lonely men money to "teach" them how to became a He-man. The whole thing is crap, and not helping anyone.

  • The Israel joke is just a fact, so not so funny, just an observation.

    • @Pal3 so your telling me no Arabs at all have been vaccinated. Their are no Jews or Arabs in Israel just Israelis and half of the Israeli population has been vaccinated

    • @Subbed Channels truth .. believe what ya want but that’s called an opinion .

    • LIAR

  • no one is free until everyone is free! f r e e p a l e s t i n e

  • "Florida man, Florida man, must be something in the air, water or sand."

  • Simp is literally from the beginning of covid they are BEHIND

  • Catholic Church: "No touching", definitely needs to become a rule.

    • You know what buddy, you can shut the hell up.

  • SNL should not apologize for the Israel vaccine joke. It's the truth.

    • @Rebecca Dent but it's correct and factual. please show YOUR proof, if you have any at all, dear

    • following the Oslo Accords, Palestinians are in full control of their healthcare (1995 Interim Agreement, annex I, article 17). Israel has given the right to be vaccinated to ALL Israelis, jews, muslims, christians and whoever else alike. Israel cannot just take over the healthcare systems in Palestine as it would be illegal. The Palestinian Authority has to ask for their help first. The Palestinian Authority also stopped a plane load of medical supplies from the UAE from landing only because the plane had previously landed in Israel.

    • @Tyrus Charles Try something new, dear. That one is just overplayed and boring as hell.

    • @lili not They are occupied and oppressed by "Israel", which makes "Israel" responsible under international law..

    • @lili not - Yes, that is true. They are actually refusing to allow Israeli hospitals and the country to provide the vaccine to them. It's fact. Even leadership. But many don't care about facts.

  • che is dope! ✊✊✊

  • Just imagine if they made a joke saying America vaccinated Half of its population just the white or black half, It would be fucking racist, To be racist Or anti-Semitic in a joke Or under ones breath, doesn’t make it any better. It is sick and we need to move past this kind of dividing sh!t

  • Are they still trying to pass "Berenstain" as "Berenstein"??? You can give it up, you not gonna fool me!! It doesn't even look right as "Berenstain"!

  • Had to come here after hearing about the Israel joke backlash. That joke is funny. Comedy is an art form that can take the pain in the past and use as a punchline to be in the present. Art is Love. Comedy crosses lines. Just a thing.

  • That thumbnail looks so wrong 😨😨😨😨😨🍌

  • Every joke was on point! Great work.

  • Amazing how the Antisemites and apologists for Islamic Terrorism come out of the woodwork since China Joe Biden seized power in a coup and the TV networks that helped him do so put out this filth on its TV shows.

    • What antisemitism? Where are people promoting or excusing Islamic Terrorism?

  • Did SNL learn NOTHING from the dailyshow? Quit hiring these boring token hosts

  • That black dude might have the worst comedic delivery I've ever heard.

  • israel joke is fact not joke is the sad thing

  • The Isreal joke had me hahaha, but so sad that the joke is even possible

  • 🤣😂😅

  • No Palestinian got the Vaccine, Under International Law Isreal is responible for vaccinating Palenstinians!

  • two things I am cliche about and can’t get enough of in 2021 Bernie memes and sh*tying on Ted Cruz

  • While it was good, my favorite part was Dunkin' Donuts!

  • Israel is an apartheid state !

  • The priests put the palm leaf ashes on the forehead on Ash Wednesday. They are not wiping them off.

  • As a Floridian I do not claim these people

  • The Jewish half love it.

  • Why are people finding this funny?...it's stupid as hell...I guess if your 10 years old it may be funny or maybe 8...

  • Michael Che speaks 100% FACTS !! Israel IS the modern day version of the old racist apartheid South African government. I feel so sorry for the Palestinians ! BTW there are good Jews in Israel,. Just not many with power to change anything ( right now)

  • SMH... Obviously the SNL joke writers are desperate to prove that they can be as funny as I am... Unfortunately... The burden of responsibility you have writing jokes for network television obviously diminishes your potential of EVER being as genius and controversial as me... So now herein lies the peril you have constructed in an attempt to have a bit of petty recognition... That is why your Jew joke is hilarious... Not because of the joke... But because of the obvious aftermath of the outcry... Bwahaha it would have been easier to extend an invitation for my audience, but instead, your selfish envy and ambition to razz me has put yourself in an disadvantageous position... Not to worry I will accept your apology when the time comes and you grovel at my feet with the biggest offer ever... Cheers... I won't let you lose...

  • Is it Berenstein Bears???

  • I don't watch SNL these days. But that was funny. Everyone is fucking offended anymore.

  • If SNL fires Michael Che for his great jokes, I WILL NO LONGER WATCH SNL!

    • @Em Hu Uh, no it isn't, and also, nobody here was making that claim. That's not what people are upset about at all.

    • @Benjamin Hammel it is anti semitic to push the false narrative that american jews all support the apartheid state of israel.

    • @Suva Fiji Ok that's fair lmao

    • @Benjamin Hammel nope. I would still believe the same

    • If you were Jewish I bet you wouldn't feel the same way

  • snl = antisemites. Blessings from an european zionist christian.

    • @Iron Knight Gaming Jesus, a jew, died for your sins.

    • @Iron Knight Gaming usdos.info/border/video/0YqHpqehm7WaoK8

    • @Kurt Fleischmann How are you the victim living on stolen land?

    • @Les Paul Why was what Hitler and Arafat have done antisemitic?

    • @Kurt Fleischmann Why was it antisemitic?

  • Love that Israel joke. - a Jew who’s been to Israel.

    • @Emma Sonny they value freedom as much as Americans. And can take a joke.

    • @D. B. Levitt please don’t call me an idiot for trying to keep an open mind. No one except the people living there and government officials really know what’s happening over there.

    • Emma Sonny idiot. Palestinians are not being denied the vaccine, and if anybody is denying it to them, it’s their own authority.

    • @David M agreed! I’m hoping one day that Palestinians and Israelis can share that land peacefully, that’s what should’ve happened in the first place

    • @Emma Sonny I agree. I've long said that Netanyahu ruined Israel for me, the same as trump ruined America for me. Hopefully, one day they'll both rot in jail and ruin nothing any more.

  • Michael Che, tell me you’re antiemetic without actually telling me you’re antiemetic

    • @Joshua Banner that is factually incorrect. Respectfully, stop spreading misinformation and excusing anti-semitism

    • @Julia he didn’t say that. He made a joke. A joke based on the fact that Jews in The Israeli government havnt always treated their Palestinian neighbors well. Israel has a vibrant left-wing community that is constantly screaming out against their history and for better Palestinian rights. Israel is not a conservative fortress like many people make it out to be. Just because the government is far right like the United States, that doesn’t mean their people are. They have comedy as well. They make fun of us as well. Trust me I know I was there. Making issues about this covers the real threats and anti semitism that is actually a threat to Jews and Israelis. Have you been to Israel?! They have mandatory military service and will not cower to criticism of their government. Like most Americans.

    • @Julia It's a joke, not a dick- don't take it so hard

    • @Joshua Banner comments like his perpetrate hate towards Jews. Jewish people endure enough hatred and have no one to but themselves to stand up for them most of the time. His comments are factually wrong and spread misinformation. Jews aren’t the only people being vaccinated in Israel. - a Jew who has been the victim of antisemitism

    • Lol wrong. Stop watching comedy if that’s how you feel. Jokes arnt always meant to be nice and make you feel comfortable. Do you need a history lesson to understand why the joke was not only funny but accurate? Israel can take a fucking joke. Grow up please. -a Jew who’s been to Israel. They dont need your fake victimhood virtue signaling.

  • Israel population is a mix! 1 out of 4 is Muslim! There is no vaccination only for certain people there will be uprising. Check your "facts" SNL

    • Israel only caved in this week and agreed to vaccinate Palestinians. Before that they were not prepared to do it. Even Arab Israelis had to cross hurdles to get vaccinated. We (those who actively strived and pushed Israel for the past several weeks) made it possible and I must credit the role of Jewish and Israeli human rights organizations as well.

  • MICHAEL CHE SPREADS CONSPIRACY THEORIES !!!

    • No conspiracy theory. Pure fact! Israel only caved in this week and agreed to vaccinate Palestinians. Before that they were not prepared to do it. Even Arab Israelis had to cross hurdles to get vaccinated. We (those who actively strived and pushed Israel for the past several weeks) made it possible and I must credit the role of Jewish and Israeli human rights organizations as well.

  • The writing team earned thier lunch on this one. Great job, donuts & raises for everyone! Please don't let these staff quit and start writing terrible movies.

  • Bruh SNL just hearing the word simp??

  • Spotify: Jimmi Stone

  • I guess simp is a good deterrent to teach boys to be nice to girls. Good job world another step back

    • You can still be "nice" without being ridiculous and acting like any tiny bit of affection or attention is a crack rock from heaven. Memes catch on for good reason.

  • The joke about Israel was absolutely hilarious, but not as good as the one about catholic priests 😂

  • That Apartheid Israel joke is great. Don't think peopel really understoond it though.

    • @Johan Petterson Judaism is a religion not a race. Also, it is a fact that Israel's drive to vaccinate excluded Muslims and Palestinians until they got pressured into including everyone.

    • The comment was racist and dangerous.

  • BRRUHH
