Right before the performance, the 42-year-old actress also impersonated Oprah Winfrey during her commencement speech.
“I stand here humbled, gracious, and completely naked under this robe,” Maya shared. “It really is a true honor to be with all of you as you begin this new phase of your life, as you embark on this exciting and challenging journey of being sober during the day.”
She added, “During senior year, my father asked me what I planned to do after I graduated, and I told him ‘I want to be on Saturday Night Live.’ I never wanted to admit that being on SNL was my dream. I never wanted to admit that I was a thespian. And this was back in the day before people were talking about being thespians. It was before thespians could marry.”
