13 Timeless Moments to Celebrate Kate McKinnon's 31st Birthday

Happy birthday to one of our all-time faves, Kate McKinnon!


It's a very special Tuesday, everyone. Today is Kate McKinnon's 31st birthday and this absolutely calls for celebration. After all, what we do without the laughter and joy Kate has brought to our lives through the years? From The Big Gay Sketch Show to her most recent Saturday Night Live treasures, every week we're honored to watch her masterful comedic stylings shine as she tackles everything from songs to impersonations to dedicate cat lovers. Just thinking about her work makes us want to watch it over and over and over...and now you can! Here are some of our favorite, most amusing, and most weirdly random Kate-tastic sketches to commemor(k)ate the day. Enjoy!

When her amazing, dramatically depressing Russian correspondent Olya Povlatsky chatted about the Olympics on Weekend Update.

This Pantene commercial co-starring Sophia Vergara, which marked one of Kate's very first appearances on SNL. 

The purr-fection that is Whiskers R' Us with Charlize Theron.

When Kate and Jim Carrey had a studio-wide Sia Halloween dance-off.

When Ellen DeGeneres was in the house (with Ellen Degeneres!)

When she broke down the mastery of her Justin Bieber impersonation (and a few other, cat-related things).

When she and Sarah Silverman were a female feminist music duo and really shed some light on a few unknown facts.

When she mastered both Jane Lynch and Tilda Swinton in this outrageously wonderful 50 Shades of Grey parody.

When she played Pat, the suburban housewife who's got a pretty extreme view on Grand Theft Auto.

When we almost bought a bird bible because this woman was so creepily enthusiastic about it.

That accent! That wig! That otherwordly connection with the dead!

When, for whatever reason, she played a pseudo-Swedish Chelsea Handler and we were captivated.

Happy birthday, Kate McKinnon! If we could get you a bouquet from 1-800-Flowers, we totally would.
