Bobby Moynihan is Sam Kinison on Back to the Future Anniversary DVD (SNL)

Commercial - Back To The Future 25th Anniversary DVD

Jon Hamm ... Robin Williams
Paul Brittain ... director (voice)
Bill Hader ... Al Pacino
Steve Higgins ... announcer (voice)
Bobby Moynihan ... Sam Kinison
Jay Pharoah ... Eddie Murphy
Kristen Wiig ... Jennifer Tilly

Okay so the video clip isn't available by itself, but you can watch it in the full episode at 18 minutes:

Honestly, I think Bobby was the weakest link. He did a good job, but it just wasn't as funny and impressive in the context of seeing all these other amazing impressions. I would have preferred to see him do Nathan Lane and do a gay song.

This is the first time SNL has done a Sam Kinison impression.

As far as these impressions go, Jon Hamm takes the cake. Here's how I'd rank them...

1. Jon Hamm ... Robin Williams
2. Jay Pharoah ... Eddie Murphy
3. Kristen Wiig ... Jennifer Tilly
4. Bill Hader ... Al Pacino
5. Bobby Moynihan ... Sam Kinison

Don't get me wrong, Bill also did great. But you've got to do more than nail the voice and mannerisms. You've got to make the performance funny, and Jon and Jay did that the best. And Kristen was amazing and hilarious (but it was only one joke, really).
