Phoebe Waller-Bridge Is So Fleabag In This SNL Promo And We Can't Wait

The Fleabag star, who won three top TV awards last month, is guest hosting the US comedy show on Saturday

If we’d won three Emmys, we don’t think we’d ever put them down, so we totally get Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s vibe in this new advert for her upcoming Saturday Night Live gig.

The Fleabag star is guest hosting the popular US comedy show on Saturday, and was keen to show off her recent Emmys success in the promo for it.

After bagging three top gongs at the ceremony last month, Phoebe is insistent on carrying them with her at all times as she begins preparations for the show in the ad.

She is seen wandering the SNL studios in New York while clutching her awards, demanding someone tips water in her mouth during an ideas meeting and waiting an age for someone to push the lift button.

The skit is just a taster of what to expect when Phoebe takes the reigns of SNL, appearing in a variety of other sketches with the show’s cast, as well as introducing musical guest Taylor Swift.

Phoebe won her Emmys for the last series of Fleabag, taking home the prizes for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Best Writing for a Comedy Series and Best Comedy Series.

The Emmys kicked off a fantastic week for the star, as a few days later it was announced she had signed a multi-million pound deal with Amazon Prime to exclusively make and produce a number of new series for the streaming service.

Phoebe has also been busy working on the new James Bond film, No Time To Die, after being brought in as a writer to make the female characters feel “more real”.
