5 Best Vanessa Bayer Moments From ‘Saturday Night Live’

“Saturday Night Live” is losing its bar mitzvah boy.

Vanessa Bayer bid adieu to the comedy sketch show on Saturday night, after seven years as a cast member. We’re mourning Bayer’s departure (and celebrating many more years of on-screen hilarity to come!) by counting down some of the comedian’s best SNL impressions.

The Rachel

Could Bayer’s Rachel Green impression BE more on point? Bonus points that Aniston joins in on this sketch, and gives us a massive heaping of 90’s nostalgia. No, really, try watching this and not wanting to immediately curl up for an endless “Friends” binge watch.


The Miley

Bayer completely nails a young Miley Cyrus, congested voice, rhinestone tank top and all.


Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy

Jacob is quite possibly every New York-based Jewish 13-year-old boy (with the small exception of those preteen kids who were fortunate enough to be graced with coolness).


The Inept Meteorologist

Bayer’s Dawn Lazarus hasn’t quite gotten the hang of being a meteorologist, but she’s sure having a great time trying.


Tiffany Trump

Only a brief cameo — but it’s hard to pass up any opportunity to watch Bayer rapping as Tiffany Trump.
