Comic Shane Gillis will probably be making his long-in-coming Saturday Evening Stay debut this weekend, and it wouldn’t be the worst thought to maintain expectations from hovering to unattainable heights.

At the least that appears to be the gist of his new SNL promo, which reveals Gillis rehearsing a decidedly underwhelming monologue loaded with hackneyed, anything-but-controversial gags. “A brand new Planet of the Apes is popping out,” he cracks as forged members Sarah Sherman and Marcello Hernández look on. “It’s gonna be bananas.”

Gillis’ SNL look is already one of many extra uncommon bookings within the present’s historical past, coming about 5 years after the comedian was employed as a featured participant, however was fired earlier than making his debut after movies surfaced during which he used an anti-Asian racial slur throughout his stand-up act (“all the time a Mad TV man anyway.” he tweeted after he was let go).

Because the incident, Gillis’ fan base has skyrocketed: His most up-to-date comedy particular, Shane Gillis: Lovely Canines, debuted on Netflix final September and charted within the streamer’s World High 10 TV (English). His debut particular, Shane Gillis: Stay in Austin, debuted on YouTube in 2021 and has to this point racked up over 16 million views.

The musical visitor for Saturday’s present is 21 Savage.
