Friday Find: Olya Povlatsky

When Kristen Wiig left SNL, I was bummed. She had become one of my favorite comedians, and I thought no one could come close to my love for her. And while I still adore Kristen Wiig (she remains one of my favorite sources for GIFs, among other things), I am so happy to have Kate McKinnon on the show now. She is so talented and has such a wide range. I'm always excited to see her come on the screen, because I know it's going to be good.

One of my all-time favorite characters of hers (aside from her spot-on impression of Justin Bieber) is Olya Povlatsky, especially in its original incarnation in this sketch discussing the winter Olympics in Sochi. I've somehow found myself talking about it several times lately, and it's always my delight to share something I love with more people. There are many lines from it that we regularly quote around my house. I won't spoil any of them for you, though. Enjoy!

PS - Still love you, Kristen. You and Kate are like peanut butter and caramel: I could never choose.
