Regina King made it Saturday night live Debut this weekend and no one was more excited than Kenan Thompson. When the actress spoke of being nervous about her first appearance, Thompson stood by her side for support. With every new sentence King uttered, Thompson acted as the ultimate hype man as he told the audience to make some noise and called her directorial debut for One night in Miami. “You know better! She was nominated for a Golden Glis-obe, baby!” he proclaimed a nod to her recent Golden Globe nomination. There is certainly nothing quite like a blown horn and an excited crowd that gets you excited for your first one SNL Episode. Check out King’s full monologue above.
