keenan thompson as al sharpton (fbi informant)

*With news of his days as an undercover FBI informant coming to the forefront again, it should come as no surprise that Rev. Al Sharpton would be a target of another “Saturday Night Live” skit.

In the spoof, titled “Undercover Sharpton,” a “Shaft” like younger Sharpton is portrayed (by Keenan Thompson) with long hair and a penchant for talking loudly and fumbling his way through a sting operation.

Some are calling it clever. Maybe so, but it didn’t seem to be very funny.
