4. Jay Pharoah
Pharoah spent his first three seasons fighting for airtime, only getting to portray President Obama starting in his third year on the show even though his dead-on impression partially helped land him the gig in the first place. Rather than look to make his mark in live sketches (never his true strength), Pharoah swung for the fences on the digital shorts front and connected with hit after viral hit. A gifted presentational comedian, Pharoah has more skill at delivering his comedy to the camera than other performers, a skill that translates into his talking head appearances on "Weekend Update" as well. There may be more well-rounded performers on the show, but kudos to Pharoah for finding his niche, and to "SNL" for letting him run with it this season.
