Saturday Night Live viewers may be seeing double the Sanders this weekend.
Bernie Sanders’ senior advisor Tad Devine hinted that the presidential candidate will make an appearance on the Larry David-hosted episode of SNL. “We’ll be live in New York,” Devine told CNN, a not-subtle wink at the sketch comedy show’s iconic catchphrase.

If Sanders does indeed appear, he’ll be the third 2016 presidential hopeful to grace the stage of Studio 8H this season. Hillary Clinton appeared in a skit opposite Kate McKinnon portraying her in October, and Donald Trump hosted an episode in November. Larry David kicked off SNL‘s 41st season with his Bernie Sanders impression, and it quickly became very popular. Sanders himself has responded with his own impression of David, so perhaps we’ll see the two men try on each other’s remarkably similar personas for a sketch.
NBC declined to comment on rumors of Sanders’ appearance.
Sanders or no Sanders, Larry David’s episode of Saturday Night Live airs this weekend at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
