Maya Rudolph’s Saturday Night Live hosting gig seems a long period of time in the making. In this week’s discount for the starlet’ approaching episode, the SNL alum emerges from a Studio 8H closet after 17 years in hiding.

SNL castmembers Andrew Dismukes and Chloe Troast discover Rudolph in her hiding location, where she beings in a prairie-like clothing and informs them over a bowl of oatmeal, “Oh, hi there! I wasn’t anticipating visitors.”

The Loot star goes on to inform the surprised comics she’s existed given that 2007 when she left SNL after 7 years as a castmember.

“Why would I leave? I have whatever I require here,” she states, indicating “my books, my porridge, my dear buddy Kenny.” The video camera then pans to a mop with googly eyes.

When Troast asks, “Aren’t you expected to be hosting today?” Rudolph reacts, “Oh I am. Would you guys mind closing the door? I’m going to require to refurbish.”

At that, Rudolph amazingly appears through a puff of smoke behind the castmembers, dressed and prepared to go. “See you Saturday,” she informs them and strolls down the hall.

In reality, Rudolph has actually kept rather hectic in the 17 years she declares to have actually remained in the closet– consisting of returning two times previously as host, the last time in 2021.

She will host for a 3rd time this weekend, with musical visitor Vampire Weekend. Following Rudolph, Jake Gyllenhaal and Sabrina Carpenter will liquidate the sketch program’s 49th season.
