You’d be forgiven for thinking Maya Rudolph has hosted Saturday Night Live in recent years. As the show’s go-to Kamala Harris impersonator, she’s put in more appearances than some of the show’s own featured players.
But alas, Rudolph hasn’t graced the SNL set as host since way back in 2012. That’s all going to change on March 27, when Rudolph returns to host with musical guest Jack Harlow. The show confirmed the upcoming lineup on Twitter as Saturday’s latest episode aired.
The tweet doesn’t explicitly spell it out, but the Feb. 27 episode featuring Nick Jonas (as well as a scathing takedown of one of the GOP’s more problematic politicians not named Trump) marks the start of a month-long break for the weekly sketch comedy series.
When the show returns, Rudolph will lead the charge. You can almost certainly expert her to bring back her impression of the U.S. Vice President. But she was also a cast member on the show from 2000 until 2007, and she’s got her own roster of fan favorite characters to draw on as well.
Is it finally time for a Glenda Goodwin comeback?
With all respect to Ego Nwodim, who’s been doing great as Dionne Warwick, maybe Rudolph’s upcoming appearance will let her revive another famous impersonation from her past. Calling all Kimmy Schmidt fans for this one.
