Maya Rudolph on SNL

Expect to see plenty of Vice President Kamala Harris on the next Saturday Night Live.

The late-night sketch show has tapped series vet/Harris impersonator Maya Rudolph to host on March 27. She’ll be joined by first time musical guest Jack Harlow.

Rudolph took home the 2020 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series, having been nominated for her many appearances throughout Season 45 as then-presidential hopeful Harris.
