'SNL's' Bobby Moynihan Theory About the 'Weekend Update' Guests Will Blow Your Mind!
By Sarah Flanigan
Drunk Uncle, Stefon, The Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation With at a Party, Aunt Linda, and Bar Mitzvah boy Jacob are all a few of our favorite Saturday Night Live Weekend Update guests. But did you know they all might just be related?
If you’re like, ‘WHAT? NO WAY! MY MIND IS BLOWN FOREVER!!’ Don’t worry, you’re not alone. That was our reaction too when we saw Bobby Moynihan’s, who plays Drunk Uncle, theory during his interview with Time Out New York.
“I think all of those characters on Update come from one family. I always call [Drunk Uncle's] wife Linda because I joke around that it's [Kristen Wiig’s character] Aunt Linda, and Stefon is their son,” the funny man said. “The Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started a Conversation with at the Party is their daughter. And Jacob lives next door but Drunk Uncle doesn’t talk to him because he’s Jewish.”
During his interview, he also admitted how he would like to see Drunk Uncle’s last appearance on “Weekend Update.”

“The only way to finish it is just that he’s dead,” Bobby said, ultimately breaking our hearts forever and ever. “He’s going to die on ‘Update,’ and that’s it.”
Hopefully that doesn’t actually happen. So instead of prematurely mourning the loss of Drunk Uncle, we’ve decided to come up with a few of our favorite moments from the loved character and the rest of his possible Update immediate family members.
