Y&R's Michelle Stafford hosts ACME Saturday Night Photo Gallery!

Over the weekend, The Young and the Restless, Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) took her turn at hosting ACME Saturday Night, the SNL-type sketch comedy sketch show performed with the hilarious ACME comedy troupe.

On-Air On-Soaps was in attendance to see Michelle and we have to report that of all the soap stars that have taken their turn at the hosting chores and as special guest, it was Michelle’s performance that stood tall among all the rest. (And yes, Christian LeBlanc’s is right up there, too).

From her opening monologue where she supposed to be interrupted by an ACME comedy troupe member but isn’t (for awhile anyway), to her turn as an offbeat psychiatrist who while in session with her patient is prone to bursts of phrases like, “OMG”, to playing one-half of a deadbeat couple who are so bored with each other they try to come up with banal conversation, to a turn as “herself” on a Oprah-like talk show where the host tries to get her to name the biological father of her baby, Michelle played it all to the hilt with an infectious delivery, humor, and yet sparks of realism that made it completely relatable to the audience.

The ACME house was packed on Saturday night with many soap stars in attendance to cheer on Michelle including her castmates, Christian LeBlanc, Christel Khalil, Michael Muhney and Peter Bergman.  The Bay’s Lilly Melgar, and DAYS Arianne Zuker with husband, Kyle Lowder,  and Mark Hapka also were there.  The musical trio of Chalk FarM was the musical guest and performed two songs, one which we can’t get out of her head and loved called, Lie on Lie.
