TMZ has reported that Jan Hooks has passed at the age of 57. She was an amazing comedian who starred on Saturday Night Live and me made squirt water out of my nose from laughing too hard back in my high school days. After her run on Saturday Night Live, Hooks went on to star in Designing Woman, 3rd Rock from the Sun and most recently 30 Rock.

No report yet on the cause of death although TMZ stated she was battling an illness for some time.  Here are a couple of my fave SNL sketches of Jan Hooks. First, William Shatner and the amazing Sweeney Sisters’ Christmas Medley (with Nora Dunn). The second with the late Phil Hartman as Frank Sinatra and Hooks as Sinead O’Connor. They hold up so well.
