Sidibe Hosting SNL On 4/24Published by Clay Cane on Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at 12:00 am.
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.
