It’s Been Six Long Years For SNL & The World…

…but THANK GOD the wait is over because Sasheer Zamata will make her debut on Saturday Night Live this month! While I side-eyed the oddly rushed auditions for a Black female comedian who could do her thing alongside Jay, Kate, Nasim, and Kenan, I applaud the fact that Lorne Michaels has greenlit Zamata and her talents. On researching her past work, I stumbled upon this hilarious and smart UCB sketch starring Zamata, which takes a comedic look at two stereotypes- Black people talking to movie screens and always getting killed in horror movies. I love this:

p.s. In her premiere January 18th episode, Drake will also be the host and musical guest. I’m praying that a Degrassi: TNG sketch happens, with Sasheer as Hazel and Drake reprising his role as Jimmy. Go ahead and steal my idea if you want to SNL writers. I’ll get over it.
