Bill Hader Broke (Again) as Stefon During ‘SNL’ Return — But This Time It Wasn’t His Fault (Video)

He can’t even get through explaining why he cracked up without cracking up

Bill Hader was so close to beating his usual giggle fit when he reprised his beloved role as Stefon during his return to “Weekend Update” while hosting “SNL” Saturday. And then John Mulaney had to go and ruin everything.

Hader is known for never being able to keep it together while playing this particular character, but while appearing on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Monday, the late-night sketch show alum explained he almost got through it until Mulaney showed up as Stefon’s lawyer (and “conceptual piss artist”)

“He whispered in my ear to make me laugh,” Hader told Seth Meyers, laughing even then. “He said, ‘My girlfriend works at Yoshinoya Beef Bowl,’ which is a restaurant chain in L.A. What?!”

And that is what took Hader down.
