Comedian Sasheer Zamata, the first black female cast member on SNL since Maya Rudolph left in 2007, is performing not one, but two shows tonight in Los Angeles.

She tweeted the following message about her performances today:

Zamata is spreading her roots and performing improv first at 6:30 p.m. at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) in Los Feliz. (She was a member of the UCB New York chapter and performed there regularly.) Joining her will be her bestie Nicole Byer of MTV's Girl Code, and the show only costs $5.

After that, the comedian will be making a small trek over to Hollywood Improv at 10 p.m. for their "Hollywood Follies" event that features stand-up comedy interspersed with sultry burlesque dancing. Tickets are $15 a pop.

Zamata made her first appearance on SNL on the Drake episode on Jan. 18.
