22. Operaman

Adam Sandler's prima donna, wearing a tux to sing mock arias about the news events of the day, from John Wayne Bobbit ("donde es schlongo?") to Pearl Jam ("Nirvana kissa my assa"), occasionally blubbering into his hanky. Operaman was a key figure in SNL's early-Nineties renaissance. And quite possibly the finest use of Sandler's musical skills.

 Best line: "Oh solo Mia, Mia solo! Soon-Yi incesta, Woody addio!"
