“Saturday Night Live’s” newest cast member, Sasheer Zamata, makes her debut Saturday night on NBC, 11:30 EST. The Upright Citizens Brigade alum joins a small sorority of black women who have been cast members: Maya Rudolph, Ellen Cleghorne, Danitra Vance and Yvonne Hudson.

Will we see a sketch about Michelle Obama, who turned 50 Friday? The first lady tweeted a picture of herself with her brand new AARP card earlier:


Anything’s possible, but whatever happens, I’ll be live-tweeting the show @SorayaTWP, so be sure to share your thoughts and we can all cackle together!

In the meantime, a little background on Zamata:
