As we reported earlier
, Gabourey Sidibe
is set to host Saturday Night Live
. However, no date was set and being that there are only a few episodes left for the season many were wondering when she would host. Now, it has been confirmed the Oscar nominee will host on April 24th. The week before Ryan Phillippe
is hosting and the week after television icon, Betty White
, is hosting -- Sidibe is in great company!
Clearly, Sidibe is proving Howard Stern
wrong -- not that she has to. However, I do hope SNL
does a vicious parody on Stern.
It will be great to see Sidibe work with comedy, considering the only performance we have seen her in is such a heavy role in Precious
. For those who doubt Sidibe's comedic skills, check her out in the clip below.
