Stefon’s got the low-down on some great clubs for tourists to celebrate St. Patrick’s day!
Saturday Night Live alum Bill Hader returned to host the show on March 17, which means Stefon, one of the star’s most memorable characters, also got to drop by the Weekend Update desk for a long overdue update on New York’s hottest clubs.
It was a triumphant return for SNL’s beloved city correspondent:
Fans couldn’t contain their excitement for a new Stefon segment:
I actually screamed in my room when they introduced Stefon 😭💓 @nbcsnl

The segment also featured a surprise guest: co-writer John Mulaney!

Mulaney famously likes to surprise Hader with new jokes on the cue cards during each Stefon segment.

The best thing about the Stefon character is that 90% of it is clearly Bill Hader just reading John Mulaney jokes off the telestrator for the first time live on television.

It was definitely a memorable St. Patrick’s day…
…though perhaps not as memorable as St. Patrick’s Days past. We hope to see you soon, Stefon!
