Alongside him in the latest sketch is Alec Baldwin, who plays a hesitant Jim Webb and Kate McKinnon, whose Hillary Clinton seemed almost effortless.
Larry David nailed that Bernie Sanders impersonation, almost on the same level as Tina Fey/Sarah Palin #SNL— B (@Russel510) October 18, 2015
Larry David as Bernie Sanders. Genius. Best casting since Tina Fey as Palin.— Tom Hyde (@tomh1138) October 18, 2015
Really hope Larry David comes back to SNL each week as Bernie Sanders like Tina Fey did with Sarah Palin back in '08. Make it happen Lorne!— Andrew Citrin (@afcitrin) October 18, 2015
Larry David doing Bernie Sanders is the best thing to happen on #SNL since Tina Fey as Palin— Conor Shea (@CONORPATRICKS) October 18, 2015
Fey's 2008 rendition of the Alaskan governor remains one of the most biting pieces of political satire in America in recent years.
David worked on 'SNL' in the mid-1980s but had just one sketch picked up by producers.
The former stand-up went on to work with Jerry Seinfeld to co-create the eponymous sitcom, bringing his unique style of observational comedy to the masses.
But now it seems David might have a big role to play during next year's race for the White House.
Larry, we salute you.
