Hillary Clinton to Appear on SNL Season 41 Premiere
After a summer spent on the benches, unable to properly parody our insane election field, SNL will come out swinging. This Saturday’s Season 41 premiere with Miley Cyrus will reportedly feature democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton herself, alongside the very cast member picked to parody her.
According to a report from the New York Times, Clinton will appear in this Saturday’s politicized cold open, alongside her SNL doppelganger Kate McKinnon, a supporter who previously told the Times of Clinton ““[she's] a staunch, passionate lady, and in our culture, unfortunately, there’s something funny about that.” The sketch will reportedly parody the current democratic frontrunner’s overly cautious campaign.
Worth noting, Clinton’s campaign could not confirm the appearance, which would also take the place of delivering a keynote address to the Human Rights Campaign, one of the country’s most powerful lesbian and gay rights group.
Following Miley Cyrus, the NBC sketch comedy great will see comedy icon Amy Schumer taking the stage for the first time with The Weekend, while October 17 will bring Tracy Morgan out of recovery to host alongside Demi Lovato. As to changes this year, Season 41 has added comedian Jon Rudnitsky to its featured players, along with Fran Gillespie, Will Stephen, Sudi Green, Paul Masella, Chris Belair, and Dave Sirus to the writers’ room.
Conversely, SNL Season 41 will lose fan-favorite Mike O’Brien, along with Claire Mulaney, Alison Rich, Natasha Rothwell and Nick Rutherford. While we gear up for Saturday, check out Miley’s premiere promos below.
