I found myself unexpectedly chuckling as I sat here watching the set of four just-released Saturday Night Live promos highlighting Gabourey Sidibe’s hosting gig this coming weekend. Before seeing them, I was questioning Sidibe taking the starring role on the comedy show: Is she a big enough star? Is there enough fodder for the writers? Heck, is she funny enough?

But with these promos — which you can watch below — I feel like at least the last question is cleared up, as Sidibe deftly joked around with cast member Andy Samberg, imploring him to take off his pants at one turn. Enjoy here:

What do you think of Sidibe as a comedian? Has she got the stuff to pull of Saturday night’s task? Are you planning to watch? Sound off in the comments.
