SNL: Chris Hemsworth plays male stripper in sketch

Posted on


No, you didn’t accidentally switch over to Magic Mike XXL while watching SNL on Saturday — host Chris Hemsworth did play a male stripper during one of the night’s final sketches, but he could have used a couple of tips from Channing Tatum.

Hemsworth, Jay Pharoah, Taran Killam, and Beck Bennett play male college students who decide a strip club is the perfect place to showcase their dance moves. Problem is, those dance moves are more of the theatrical variety than the Chippendale one.

Watch below as the women in the audience are disappointed with the lack of strip club stripping — save for Leslie Jones’ character, who still appreciates the foursome’s showmanship.
