Zach Galifianakis Plays ‘Game Of Game Of Thrones’ On SNL

By: Chris Crum - May 6, 2013

Comedian Zach Galifianakis hosted the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, and a number of the show’s segments are generating a fair amount of buzz on Monday morning.

We already looked at the Google Glass sketch from Weekend Update, in which Fred Armisen played tech blogger Randall Meeks, trying to convince Seth Meyers that the device is cool, and makes life easier. Spoiler alert: it did neither (though the jury’s still out in real life).

Another one of the most-talked about sketches from the episode features Galifianakis on a game show called “Game of Game of Thrones”.

It seems that not a day goes by that the Internet doesn’t produce some type of Game of Thrones parody, so it’s no surprise to see SNL take on the show. Game of Thrones’ Peter Dinklage actually appeared on Weekend Update a few weeks back.

    Galifianakis did a great job as an SNL host especially with the Game of Game of Thrones sketch that captures the spirit of these rabid fans. I work at DISH with several huge GoT fans that would easily win a game show like that. I didn’t make it home in time for the start of SNL, but I kept up with it via the DISH Anywhere app on my iPhone. I like that I can use this feature to watch live TV when I take the train home from work.
