Kendrick Lamar Shows Off His Comedy Chops In 'SNL' Promo

By HHL Editors

This weekend, Kendrick Lamar will be Saturday Night Live's musical guest for the second time. He shot the comedy show's promo with Woody Harrelson, who will host, and cast member Kate McKinnon.

In the first gag, McKinnon asks Harrelson if Lamar was in True Detective with him, and then admits she "tongued" K-Dot because she thought he was Matthew McConaughey. "Sorry to deceive you," Lamar says with solid comic timing.

In the next gag, Lamar has fun with his small stature and has Harrelson give him a piggyback ride.

Last time Lamar was on 'SNL,' in January of 2013, K-Dot impressed with his performance of 'Swimming Pools (Drank.)' One would expect him to play "i" this time, but if he gets two musical slots maybe he will surprise us with something we haven't heard.
