Saturday Night Live spoofs NPR's Tiny Desk

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning. I'm A Martínez. The joke was on NPR this past weekend. In a sketch featured on "Saturday Night Live," comedian Ramy Youssef played a musician excited to be on NPR's Tiny Desk concert series who keeps getting interrupted by a 35-year-old intern played by Bowen Yang.

(SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW, "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE")

BOWEN YANG: (As character) Speaking of big, I'm brave enough to say it. That desk is not tiny.

(LAUGHTER)

MARTÍNEZ: The entire sketch is on YouTube. Live from New York - Wait. Wrong show. Maybe someday. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
