After appearing on 146 episodes of ‘Saturday Night Live‘ as a series regular, this weekend Amy Poehler returns to her old stomping grounds for a personal first: host of the late-night sketch show.

NBC has just released a promo of the ‘Parks & Recreation‘ star and Andy Samberg teasing her appearance atop 30 Rockefellar Center (either that or a very convincing skyline backdrop).

In an apparent nod to ‘Wayne’s World‘ and/or ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure,’ the two seem a wee bit obsessed with the words “excellent,” “radical,” and “schwing.”

Poehler will be joined by musical guest Katy Perry for SNL’s season premiere this Saturday, September 25 at 11:30 ET.

Are you looking forward to seeing Poehler kick off SNL’s 36th season? Hoping she reteams with former Weekend Update co-host, Seth Meyers?
