This week, Tiffany Haddish made history as the first black female stand-up to host Saturday Night Live. While Taylor Swift's performances on the sketch comedy show have received a lot of attention (and mixed reviews (opens in new tab)), it's important to talk about the fact that Haddish CRUSHED it as host. Here are the sketches you have to see:

Her Monologue

Haddish fangirled about SNL in her monologue, wore an Alexander McQueen gown, and delivered top-quality stand-up.

Tournament Fighter

One of the most laugh-out-loud funny sketches of the night was "Tournament Fighter," which poked fun at gaming and hyper-masculinity with Haddish appearing as an unconventional gaming character.

Lion King Auditions

Haddish delivered flawless Cardi B and Mary J. Blige impressions in this impersonation parade of a sketch.

Whiskers R We

If you're a fan of intentionally-awkward humor, you can't skip Whiskers R We, which pairs Haddish with SNL all-star Kate McKinnon as women who work at a cat rescue.
