Kumail Nanjiani is hosting Saturday Night Live this week — assuming he can find the stage.

A promo for the Big Sick and Silicon Valley actor shows him struggling to find Studio 8H.

In the promo, Nanjiani is seen wandering around aimlessly, unable to find the main SNL stage. After being stared down by makeup artists and hair stylists in the dressing room and walking into an empty office, Nanjiani runs into an employee who he hopes could offer help.

"Are you lost?" asks the employee, named Sandy. "Yeah," Nanjiani shakes his head, relieved to have found help. After he informs her that he's searching for the SNL stage, the comedian explains that he is unsure why he is having so much trouble tracking it down. "You'd think it be easy to find. I've been walking around for hours," Nanjiani tells Sandy.  

The comedian then describes another uncomfortable moment during his journey. "Walked into a Rachel Maddow taping, which is awkward, because they don't have an audience. I kept laughing at all the wrong parts," Nanjiani recalls.  

Once Sandy assures him that she can help, Nanjiani joins her as they happily strut to the stage, leaving the upcoming host to marvel over the set.

Throughout the promo Pink’s song, "So What," acts as the background music. The singer will be this week's musical guest.
