Kate McKinnon could be the next female star on Saturday Night Live, and the comedian will get a tryout of sorts during the next live show. As Deadline initially reported, she’ll appear on the April 7 episode, hosted by Sofia Vergara. If McKinnon wins the job, she’d become the show’s first openly gay performer since Terry Sweeney starred on SNL during its 1985-86 season.

McKinnon is no stranger to sketch comedy. She spent three seasons on Logo’s The Big Gay Sketch Show, where she was perhaps best known for playing Fitzwilliam, a young British boy who yearns to be a girl. She’s also provided voice-over work for The Venture Brothers and Robotomy. You can check out a clip from one of her characters on The Big Gay Sketch Show below:
