Seth Meyers Unveils Rejected SNL Sketch With Trans Character ‘Jennjamin Franklin’ – VIDEO


As part of his “Second Chance Theatre” bit, Late Night with Seth Meyers performed a rejected Saturday Night Live sketch about Jason Sudeikis’ date with a transgender person named Jennjamin Franklin.

Jennjamin Franklin is genderqueer in 18th century garb who commonly gets mistaken for male actors even though Jennjamin is a capable dancer and romancer. It’s easy to see why the sketch got rejected, but it manages to be absurd without making either Jennjamin or Jennjamin's date the butt of the joke.
