watch new SNL castmember Sasheer Zamata give a ‘GIRLS’ tour of Greenpoint
Sasheer Zamata, SNL’s first African American female cast member since 2007, made her debut on on the show this past week as part of the Drake-hosted episode. She was in a bunch of sketches, but didn’t have a whole lot of lines — though her Rihanna-as-Blossom bit was a definitely highlight. You get a much better example of her comic chops in a video just posted to Lorne Michaels’ AboveAverage YouTube channel. In it she plays Madison, a girl who gives Girls tours of Greenpoint, featuring locations from the popular HBO show. Example, “This is Cafe Grumpy where Hannah works and they have a drink called ‘The Hannah.’ It’s an $8 cup of coffee.” You can watch the whole thing in this post.
Meanwhile the third season of Girls is three episodes in and does continue to feature lots of GPT locales. In this past week’s episode, Hannah celebrated her 25th birthday at Matchless. Did you catch that one? Maybe you were an extra in it?
