Apparently the initial video was later removed from YouTube, but eventually, I found a copy here on the SNL section of Hulu. Nicholas Fehn (Fred Armisen acting as a twice repeating guest on weekend update, first with Seth Meyer, second with Amy Poehler), political comedian, is Fred Armisen at his finest. It’s really worth seeing, so take a look.

SNL Episode Information for Fred Armisen Nicholas Fehn, Political Comedian
As far as I can tell, Fred Armisen played the political comedian Nicholas Fehn a total of two times, both times appearing as a 2-3 minute guest commenter on Weekend Update, a long-standing feature of Saturday Night Live. Each time, Nicholas Fehn comes on to the set, pile of newspapers in hand, and lets the comedy loose, pitching newspaper headlines as the punchline, AND the setup. Social satire deluxe, and one of my favorite bits. Almost as good as Fred Armisen forcing Will Ferrell to eat cat poop in his jazz restaurant in Anchor Man.
