31. Very White

Chevy Chase's soul singer, sitting down at the piano and bringing all his smug-preppy-asshole deadpan to a Seventies slow jam. The perfect example of a one-joke character who appears the exact right number of times (once) with the exact right number of jokes (one). Perhaps Chevy's most well-rounded SNL original character.

Best line: "Baby, I remember the first time I saw you — you were down on the beach, entertaining the Van Der Camps. And I was at the tennis camp, looking for a fourth for mixed doubles."
