As fans, co-stars, and fellow celebrities mourn the loss of Carrie Fisher, a lot of her non-Star Wars work has been resurfacing on the interwebs. And because Carrie Fisher was fearlessly hilarious, it shouldn't come as a surprise that she once hosted SNL and totally crushed it.

Fisher was only a one-time host of SNL. She hosted the November 18, 1978 episode, which was about a year and a half after the release of A New Hope. The clip below is the opening of the show, where Fisher donned full Princess Leia gear to deliver her monologue, and then was transported as Princess Leia into a 1950s teen beach movie.
