The sketch opened with Chloe expertly mimicking the cadences of Drew’s voice as she introduced her talk show, which premiered on September 15.

After the introduction, she spoke with a virtual audience member who revealed she had thousands of dollars of debt, only for the comedian to excitedly announce they were going to renovate her walk-in closet.

Afterward, Chloe’s version of Drew had fawning interviews with Reese and Nicole, and the show spoofed her sometimes awkward reunion with Tom.

The clip ended with ‘Drew’ introducing Kenan Thompson as Pose’s Billy Porter to sing a song to a large flower.

‘Is this really happening, or am I kinda high?’ he asks after stopping mid-song.

The sketch included a dig at Ellen Degeneres and the recent allegations of a toxic workplace on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

‘And don’t worry about her being mean to the crew. They say she maintains eye contact too long and is too emotionally supportive,’ Beck Bennet’s announcer said as Chloe chased her cameraman around on set while trying to give him a hug. 

Drew’s delight at SNL followed news that Zac Efron has been cast in a remake of her 1984 sci-fi/horror film Firestarter, based on the novel by Stephen King.

The actress starred in the film when she was around nine, shortly after her whirlwind success in Steven Spielberg’s E.T.
