Videolist: Bill Hader's Best 'SNL' Sketches

With today's news that Bill Hader is leaving Saturday Night Live after eight seasons as a wildly-popular cast member on the show, we've collected videos of Hader's best sketches for a nice look back at the excellent work he's done on SNL. From characters like everybody's favorite clubhopper Stefon to ancient reporter Herb Welch and dead-on impressions of Al Pacino, Alan Alda, and Vincent Price, they're all here. SNL has some awfully big shoes to fill next year.

Check out a ton of classic Bill Hader sketches below:

    I'd imagine we're getting one last Stefon and What's Up With That.
    I've been longing for another Vinny Vedecci for some time now. Puppet Class is one of my favorites and I remember liking the Sports Show sketch. I can't watch Dateline without thinking of Bill Hader's impression and inappropriately laughing.

    I'd forgotten about that Greg the Alien sports show sketch….that was amazing.

    I'm gonna have to say that "Kanish" is a great honorable mention for this list. It's late in the game, but I thought the sketch was inordinately funny.

    Oh, how I loved his Vincent Price sketches. He's one of the most versatile performers SNL ever had.
