Amy Schumer Reveals a Richer, Humbler Side of Herself in Hilarious 'SNL' Promos
By John Boone
Is it too early to crown Amy Schumer as the best Saturday Night Live host ever?
We may be getting ahead of ourselves, considering there have been plenty of great hosts before her -- including Miley Cyrus just last week -- but with the roll Schumer is on right now, we have a feeling she’s going to kill it. Not convinced?
Just check out these promos with her Trainwreck costar Vanessa Bayer:
The Inside Amy Schumer star will serve as host on Saturday, Oct. 10, and, as she repeatedly mentions in the clip, the musical guest is The Weeknd. (Which means we will definitely get a skit of Schumer in Fifty Shades of Grey, right?)
“Amy, this is your year! You just won an Emmy! You wrote and starred in the movie Trainwreck this summer! And now you’re hosting SNL!” Bayer gushes in the clip, before switching to a foreboding voice, “And that’s when it all came crashing down.”
We have our fingers crossed that Schumer’s hosting stint will also include an appearance by her new best bud, Jennifer Lawrence. She posted a paparazzi shot of them together on Instagram, from the weekend they all hung out with Chris Pratt and Aziz Ansari. SNL had to have come up.
So it could happen. Which would truly make her the Best SNL Host Ever.
