From playing on Saturday Night Live’s “Celebrity Jeopardy!” as a faux Sean Connery (“Knock, knock, Trebek”) to imitating former vice president Al Gore so well that it was rumored the Inconvenient Truth star began taking notes, Darrell Hammond donned the suit of almost everyone during his time on the show from 1995 to 2009, the longest run of any member. Impersonations aside, he frequently speaks on air at The Howard Stern Show, performs at the Comedy Cellar in Greenwich Village, and has popped up on episodes of Law & Order: SVU. Last November, he surprised fans with his personal memoir of booze and wrist-cutting behind the scenes at SNL, titled God, If You’re Not Up There, I’m F*cked. With a new decade of stars to brutally but hysterically impersonate, Hammond brings his latest material to a four-night stint at Carolines.
