If you spent any time at all on the internet this past weekend, you probably heard that Kim Kardashian West hosted Saturday Night Live (opens in new tab)Her opening monologue (opens in new tab) was incredibly savage—touching on everything from Kanye West's (opens in new tab) divorceable personality to her family's history with O.J. Simpson (opens in new tab)—but that wasn't KKW's only opportunity for comedy that night.

Kardashian also starred in several of SNL's signature skits, including one where she played the role of her older sister, Kourtney (opens in new tab). In the segment, titled "The People's Kourt (opens in new tab)," Kardashian wore shoulder-length straight hair and judge's robes, and liberally wielded a gavel while speaking in her sister's infamous drawl. Her impression was entirely spot-on.

The skit was a promo video for a spoof show where "Kourtney" would judge on cases involving her drama-prone family. Kris Jenner and Khloé Kardashian (opens in new tab) made guest appearances, submitting their cases to the court. The Kardashian clan's resident mom-ager sued Kylie (opens in new tab) and Kendall Jenner (opens in new tab) (played by SNL cast members)—the former for not having given birth (opens in new tab) already, and the latter for never causing drama (opens in new tab). When Kendall riposted, "I'm a Jenner, not a Kardashian," Kris clapped back, "and that's something you need to work on, honey." Kim/Kourtney chimed in with a well-timed, "ew, this is so cringe."

Amid the various cases, the judge took a break to sit on an actor playing Travis Barker's (opens in new tab) lap, when they talked about what they would do to each other later and called each other "babe" and "baby" approximately 600 times. She also brought in her good friends Megan Fox (opens in new tab) and Machine Gun Kelly (opens in new tab) (actors, again) just to watch them touch tongues for a bit, as they do.

All in all, some solid comedy from Kim.
