Ramy Youssef Addresses Israel-Palestine Conflict During ‘SNL’ Opening Monologue

Ramy Youssef just unleashed some comedic diplomacy on the world’s most intense conflict during his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live. Forget peace talks, we’ve got punchlines!

In his opening monologue on the March 30 episode, the funnyman and Poor Things actor didn’t just warm up the crowd; he attempted to defrost the icy relations between Israel and Palestine. That’s right, forget UN summits, it’s SNL where real world problems get solved!

With musical guest Travis Scott in the house, Ramy took the stage like a stand-up superhero, cape flapping in the comedic wind. But instead of diving straight into the laughs, he took a detour through the war-torn streets of Gaza, calling for a ceasefire like he’s the Gandalf of the Middle East.

After cracking a few jokes about the circus act that is the upcoming presidential election, Ramy got real with the audience about the power of prayer. Turns out, he’s the designated prayer guy in his friend group, surrounded by a bunch of “sinners” who call him up for divine intervention.

One buddy rang him up in the middle of a custody battle over his dog. Another dialed him with a more pressing issue—his family stuck in the chaos of Gaza. Ramy, playing the role of the reluctant saint, recounted his prayer session: “Please free the people of Palestine, please. And please free the hostages. All the hostages.”

But he didn’t stop there. Nope, Ramy threw in a plea for Mr. Bojangles, the canine in the crossfire of canine custody disputes. Because in Ramy’s world, even the dogs need saving.

While the world leaders are busy with their diplomatic dances, Ramy Youssef is out here dropping punchlines for peace. Stay tuned for more updates from the SNL frontlines, where laughter might just be the best weapon against global conflicts.
