Adele debuts comedy skills in Saturday Night Live appearance

Adele showed off her funny side during an appearance on Saturday Night Live with guest host Matthew Mcconaughey.

In a Thanksgiving-themed sketch on the show, which aired on Saturday night (21Nov15), Matthew played a grandfather who was engaged in a serious discussion about Syrian refugees, sparking arguments among family members.


However, the bickering ended every time Adele's hit Hello was played.


Adele also poked fun at the use of a flip phone in the promos for the show, after she featured one in her music video for Hello.


Her music was featured in many of the comedy sketches, and she also took to the stage to perform two of her latest hits, Hello and When We Were Young.


Alongside the singer, British actors John Boyega and Daisy Ridley participated in spoof test auditions with celebrities for their movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that were introduced by director J.J. Abrams.
