SNL is letting Kristen Wiig host their Holiday special…ready for the title? (Drum roll) SNL Presents: A Very Gilly Christmas. Yay!!! I’m so excited about this! I mildly obsessed with Gilly and find myself repeating words in a Gilly fashion OFTEN.
The special will be a highlight show featuring old SNL holiday sketches, but with Gilly hosting in-character. Alec Baldwin, and Steve Martin are also set to make guest appearances to introduce the sketches they’ve appeared in.
Kristen Wiig said, “That can be a tough one to work around…There’s going to be no long monologue. Maybe her five-word vocabulary will stretch to 10 or 11.”
The special will air December 17th at 8PM on NBC.
I leave you with a link to my favorite Gilly sketch.
