Kit Harrington Dresses In Drag For ‘SNL’ Sketch Of Burlesque Strip Tease [VIDEO]
Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time over the weekend – and he went all out. In one particularly revealing sketch, Harrington played fiancee to Cecily Strong‘s Erin, who made an appearance at her bachelorette party as the entertainer. After taking off his coat, though, it was revealed that Harrington was actually dressed in drag.
“The art of slowly wearing less is burlesque!” he cried as he swayed around in his black and red feathered dress, topped off with black heels and red elbow-length gloves. He called himself Eva Braun, the name of famous dictator Adolf Hitler’s mistress, and slowly took off his clothing until he was left wearing nothing but a pair of polka-dot tighty-whities and some colorful nipple pads.
Also in the sketch were SNL performers Aidy Bryant, Leslie Jones, Ego Nwodim and Melissa Villasenor as Erin’s guests, and the always-hilarious Kate McKinnon as Harrington’s dance coach. “Men are not meant for the tease but thankfully your husband is no man,” McKinnon quipped.
