Even with the host Amy Schumer and musical guest Steve Lacy always live from New York, NBC & Lorne Michaels‘ Saturday Night Live already planning next week. And we have a feeling SNL will be building buzz for next weekend, with the actor/comedian Dave Chappelle animation on November 12 with musical guest Black Star. Here is an overview of the official files:
Throwback to Amy Schumer’s Saturday Night Live Week
As we mentioned before, we didn’t get an on-set promo video for this weekend, but what we did get was an SNL cast member. My money (one of our big favourites) takes us on a (you guessed it) mini-micro tour of Studio 8H as the team continues to put everything together for Saturday night. And along the way, we get to meet some of the important players who are making sure the show makes it to our screens. In fact, we even get a guest appearance from none other than the SNL writer and Please Don’t Destroy member. Ben Marshall.
Here’s a look at Nwodim’s tour of the work in progress to prepare for this weekend (with maybe a spoiler or two):
On Wednesday, we got a chance to check out Schumer and the SNL cast members during this weekend’s play. And since I see Sarah Sherman & Colin Jost together, I hope that means another round of Jost bashing Sherman headlines on “Weekend Update” is on the way.
That brings us to the midweek skit (also from Wednesday), with Schumer joined by the SNL actor James Austin Johnson as the latter previews Schumer’s Rider. Our host being a new mum, there are definitely needs the baby will have. Like loose cigarettes. Or a gun.
Here’s a look at how it all makes sense (with an unexpected cameo from the SNL actor Michael Longfellow):
And here’s a throwback to Schumer and Lacy’s official intro “welcome video” that was posted to kick things off:
