It’s David Harbour Versus a Peacock in SNL Promo

We’ve already been enjoying the 45th season of Saturday Night Live, which started off the year with two great hosts; Woody Harrelson and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It’s also been fun watching newcomer Bowen Yang, who seems like a legitimate star-in-the-making. For the season’s next episode, your third host is Stranger Things star David Harbour. While the fate of his Stranger Things character Jim Hopper is a big unknown at the moment, what is quite clear is that Harbour is very much at home in comedy. In a new promo for the episode, Harbour appears alongside SNL alum Aidy Bryant and Yang, who aren’t super thrilled to be interrupted in the midst of eating salads.

This is Harbour’s first time hosting SNL, and you can bet he’ll be bringing his comedic chops to stage 8H. If you caught him in Netflix’s Frankstein’s Monster’s Monster, you know how funny he can be. The new promo pairs Harbour not only with Bryant and Yang, but also a new feathered friend—the NBC peacock. Harbour is forced to rudely interrupt Bryant and Yang, who are trying to enjoy their salads, to inform them of the peacock situation in his dressing room. He expects them to use a broom a shoo the peacock out. Bad idea, man. He’s not aware that this peacock is actually everyone’s boss.

Harbour will take to stage 8H this Saturday, alongside musical guest Camila Cabello. Then we’ll have a two week hiatus until SNL returns on November 2, when Kristen Stewart returns to host for the second time.

Check out the promo here. Maybe Harbour will give us hint about Hopper’s fate in Stranger Things during the show?
