WATCH: Louis C.K. Can’t Stop Laughing During ‘SNL’ Tenement Museum Sketch

Sometimes “Saturday Night Live” sketches are even better when they don’t go as smoothly as planned.

That’s exactly what happened when Louis C.K. guest hosted this weekend, and could barely make it through a skit about New York City’s Tenement Museum.

The comedian played a “historically-trained re-enactor,” alongside Kate McKinnon, who attempted to teach a group of school kids about life on the Lower East Side. Only problem was, C.K. was struggling real hard with putting on his Polish accent and he — plus McKinnon — could not stop breaking character.

Watch below, and delight in hilariously bad accents and everybody struggling to keep it together.
