Saturday Night Live: 15 Shocking Moments That Were Totally Unscripted

Let’s face it, some unscripted moments on live television break the flow of the script, but as a viewer, it might be the best thing that can come out of that set. These skits were already hilarious in their own elements, but these absolutely unscripted or improvised moments tripled their funny quotient and made them some of the greatest SNL skits ever! Although, watch out for #13 because that didn’t turn out well.
