Sarah Silverman will return to the “Saturday Night Live” stage after being fired from the late night series 20 years ago. Although there’s no bad blood between Silverman and “SNL,” she does want people to know that she’s the mastermind behind some of the show’s most classic sketches.
“I wrote a lot of the really big sketches. I did ‘Cowbell,’ ‘Cheerleaders,’ ‘The Californians,'” Silverman said in a new promo for Saturday’s episode, taking credit for bits that she clearly had nothing to do with. “I played Sarah Palin. A lot of people actually thought I was Sarah Palin.”
In a second take on this week’s promo reel, Silverman is joined by cast member Taran Killam, who mistakes everything she says as an insult better suited for a comedy roast. Killam is all smiles until he finally snaps at Silverman, telling her, “f–k you!”
Silverman also has an issue with being “Saturday Night Live’s” first female host of their 40th season.
“There has not been one woman host this year and it’s sad.” Silverman said.
“I mean, it’s just the second episode so…,” Killam explained to her.
“Saturday Night Live” premiered last week with host Chris Pratt and musical guest Ariana Grande.
Silverman will host with musical guest Maroon 5 on Saturday Oct. 4 at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
