Finally.

With Larry David hosting SNL last night, there was no avoiding a Bernie Sanders sketch. Technically, we got two.

David brought out his Sanders impression for a Curb Your Enthusiasm mashup, envisioning the Iowa Caucus campaign as an episode of the show. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to see Larry David run for office, your very awkward comedy dreams just came true. 

The real Sanders also appeared on the show, although unlike Hillary Clinton, he didn’t share the stage with his own double. Instead, he joined Larry David and the SNL cast for a rather on-the-nose sketch about passengers fleeing from a sinking ship.

David objected to the “women and children first” rule, while Sanders parodied his own stump speech by complaining about “the one percent getting this preferential treatment.”

“Sounds like socialism to me,” said David.
