There are a lot of celebrities who have made an appearance on Saturday Night Live, but there are only a few who truly shine. When it comes to the best of the best, there are three celebrities who stand out above the rest: Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, and Justin Timberlake.

Steve Martin is a comedic legend, and he always brings the funny when he appears on SNL. Whether he’s playing a game show host or a ditzy news anchor, Martin always has the audience in stitches. Alec Baldwin is also a gifted comedian, and he always brings his A-game to SNL. He’s played some iconic characters over the years, including Donald Trump, and he always nails it. Justin Timberlake is the triple threat – he can sing, dance, and act, and he always brings the heat when he’s on SNL. He’s had some hilarious sketches over the years, and he always knows how to get the audience laughing.

The writers for Saturday Night Live are some of the funniest people around. They come up with hilarious sketches that never fail to make us laugh. Some of the best skits on SNL involve the celebrity jeopardy game show. The categories they come up with are always so funny, and we can't help but watch them over and over again.
