SNLs Coffee Talk

Linda Richman’s (Mike Myers) hero was Barbra Streisand. She constantly “dedicated” the show to her, often claiming her to be the greatest actress in all of history. In what could be considered to be the sketch’s most memorable moment, Myers was joined by two special guests Madonna and Roseanne Barr as two other Jewish women (and they were authentic, take my word!). They discussed Streisand’s movie, The Prince of Tides, on the show. Near the end of the sketch, the women compared Barbra to “buttah”-and suddenly, a voice announced, “All this talk about food, I’m getting hungry, girls.” It was Streisand herself in a surprise appearance; none of the actors had any idea that she was to appear. All three managed to remain in character as the audience went wild. Though Streisand only stayed long enough to give each character a kiss and wave to the audience, the moment has become one of the most memorable in the show’s history.
