In recent months “Saturday Night Live” has faced criticism surrounding the lack of diversity on its show, more specifically, the glaring absence of a black female cast member. Until yesterday, when the weekly late-night comedy sketch series announced the hiring of Sasheer Zamata will join their cast later this month, making her the first black comedienne to star on the show since Maya Rudolph’s departure five years ago.

And as expected, to go along with SNL’s decisive decision, various clips have surfaced online showcasing a glimpse into what fans can expect from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre alum.
