Maya Rudolph and Jon Hamm Play Pretend for Variety Show [VIDEO]
Funny lady Maya Rudolph paired up with Jon Hamm in a bit for the anniversary edition of the Paul F. Tompkins Show in 2011, and clips from the show are now being released. The two performed a skit at the variety show with Tompkins, and their sketch, originally performed at L.A.’s Largo Theater, can now be found online for all to enjoy!

The skit involves Hamm visiting Rudolph and Tompkins from the future, proclaiming that he is Rudolph’s son and he’s come back to warn us about a war humans are fighting against monsters...well, more specifically, bugs. The three engage in a hilarious sketch and we witness how the present-pregnant Rudolph affects the future-grown up Hamm.

The pair seem to be extremely comfortable with each other on stage, which isn’t surprising. This isn’t the first time they’ve worked together. They explored their “silly” chops together in “Saturday Night Live,” as well as a couple comedic films, such as “Bridesmaids” and “Friends With Kids.”

The sketch itself is a bit refreshing, seeing both actors act so silly and just having fun for the audience, who, based on all the laughter heard from the clip, are obviously enjoying themselves.
