From the opening monologue, where Vergara thanked America for welcoming her so graciously, “with open arms and pulled-down pants,” to her spots as a Hunger Games field reporter and The Nanny‘s Fran Drescher, the Modern Family star flexed her comedic muscle on last night’s episode, the first after a month-long hiatus.
Most skits predictably hinged on Vergara’s hotness and heavy accent. And while it would have been nice to see a bigger range of roles for the Colombian actress…well, did you see that corset dress?!
Below are two of our favorite clips from the night: the first, an episode of Bein’ Quirky With Zooey Deschanel, featuring Kristen Wiig as Drew Barrymore and Taran Killam‘s always-hysterical impression of Michael Cera.
The second is a rendition of Andy Cohen‘s Bravo show, complete with a parody of Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, a spoof show called The Shahs of Sunset, and a name drop of It’s A Brad, Brad World.
Of course, we would be remiss not to mention British boy band One Direction‘s performance on the show. The teen sensations pulled out all the stops here: coordinating outfits, carefully swooped hair, choreographed formations, and catchy choruses. Cue Backstreet Boys nostalgia.
