Featuring another whirlwind of guests — including another tattooed artist that just terrified Ego Nwodim’s Dionne Warwick — but the real highlight was that we were building up to an appearance by the real Dionne, who was very game.
We knew she was a fan of this sketch, which was created in response to her delightfully silly tweets, and she brought that same charm and confidence to this appearance, even gracing us with a song.
Nwodim’s Warwick asked hilarious, nonsensical questions — like if Cardi B only uses the B because there was another Cardi in class — to Chloe Fineman’s Miley Cyrus, Pete Davidson’s Post Malone and actual Ed Sheeran (this week’s musical guest), among others.
Naturally, she laced in a few songs along the way, which actually prevented her from getting her COVID booster shot. Eventually though, she got tired of talking to young celebs she’d never heard of.
“You know, I am sick and tired of interviewing people who are not icons,” fake Warwick lamented. “Please welcome…me!”
With that, the actual Dionne Warwick stepped out on stage, to an explosion of cheers from fans. Fake Dionne Warwick’s first question for Actual Dionne Warwick was simple: “Dionne, why are you perfect?”
“My darling, I am not perfect,” actual Warwick answered. “I am just very, very good.”
