‘SNL’s ‘Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ Parody Is A Dark Alternate Version Of The Classic ’90s Sitcom

Just sit right there and Saturday Night Live will tell you how NBC’s ’90s classic sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air could be super dark in a parody you won’t soon forget.

SNL’s Fresh Prince of Bel-Air parody gave viewers a look at the darkest timeline of the show. Cast member Chris Redd played Will Smith in the sketch, which takes the character from West Philadelphia (born and raised) to…White Ridge, New Hampshire? Oh, it happened. This dark alternate universe has no Jazz or Carlton dance.

The SNL parody of The Fresh Prince was basically the classic sitcom mashed up with a ’90s crime/action/gangster flick and the sketch itself was a wild ride. I mean, how many ’90s kids have ever thought of this alternate universe of Fresh Prince?
