Michael Che can currently be seen at the Weekend Update desk of Saturday Night Live, but he almost never gets in on the sketch comedy side of the long-running late night show. But soon he’ll be bringing his own sketches to HBO Max with his own self-titled shows That Damn Michael Che. We’re not sure why these ideas couldn’t be utilized on SNL, especially since the sketches are using a handful of current and former cast members to make them happen, but you can watch the That Damn Michael Che trailer below.

Even as a die hard Saturday Night Live fan, I’m not entirely sure that we need a summer edition of Weekend Update for a few weeks before the full 43rd season of the late night sketch series kicks off on September.
