Chloe Fineman’s impersonation prowess remains unmatched. The comedian mimicked several of her “Saturday Night Live” costars in a sketch that aired May 7, and she nailed every single one to a T. The sketch opens with Fineman explaining how as the show’s understudy, she runs lines with fellow cast members just in case she has to fill in for one of them at the last minute. She then rattles off impressions of Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, Melissa Villaseñor, Aidy Bryant, Heidi Gardner, and Sarah Sherman, wearing outfits that match each castmate and imitating their voices and mannerisms flawlessly.
During the sketch, Fineman also donned a Scarlet Witch costume to impersonate Elizabeth Olsen and trick host Benedict Cumberbatch into giving her a role in the next Doctor Strange movie. Moments later, Olsen herself popped in and made a surprise cameo, leading Cumberbatch to think he was seeing double. “Oh my god, the multiverse is real,” he said with a puzzled look on his face.
Fineman started honing her knack for mimicking celebrities well before joining the “SNL” cast in 2019. To date, she’s impersonated everyone from Jennifer Coolidge and Britney Spears to Timothée Chalamet and Daphne Bridgerton. Most recently, her Anna Delvey parody garnered praise from Julia Garner, who portrays the fraudster in Netflix’s “Inventing Anna.”
