Welcome back to Saturday Night Live, Sarah Silverman!

Almost 20 years after working on the show's 19th season, the comedian is ready to provide some big laughs from New York City.

In a new set of promos just released, the 43-year-old gets a hilarious welcome from castmember Taran Killam.

"It's so awesome to have you here," Killam shares with the future host. "You were actually a writer back in the '90s right?"

Silverman argues she was more than just a writer. She was a comedic genius!

"I wrote some of the really big sketches," she clarifies with her signature humor. "I did cowbell, [Spartan] cheerleaders, The Californians. I did Ambiguously Gay Duo. I wrote Gilly. I played Sarah Palin."

Say what?!

"No, I think people thought that was Tina Fey," Killam clarifies. "A lot of people really thought I was Sarah Palin," she responds with a straight face.

Killam only gets more frustrated when he starts to think Silverman is making fun of him.

"All right, the roastmaster strikes again," he says in a separate promo. "Come on, I can take it."

But when the Comedy Central favorite assures him that she isn't making any jokes, Killam gets furious.

"You know what, f--k you, that's too far! That's over the line," he shouts. "You're a guest in my house." 

So what exactly does Silverman have planned for when she hosts Saturday night with musical guest Maroon 5? Let's just say the possibilities are endless.

"I'm so excited," she tells the cameras. "I can't wait to do all of my characters like Captain Irish Hands, Sally Saint Drugs, Table Girl…."

Before she can go any further, Killam reminds Silverman that one of his signature characters is Seat Man. What happens next is LOL worthy!

Watch all of the promos above and tune in to Saturday Night Live Oct. 4 at 11:30 p.m. only on NBC.
