Prepare for a bunch of nudity jokes and (hopefully) Blerta! Lena Dunham will host Saturday Night Live in just over a week, on March 8; though she's been parodied on the show, it will be her first time appearing on the influential stage. The musical guest that evening will be The National, whose documentary, Mistaken for Strangers, hits theaters in late March.

Below, check out some tweets from the Girls creator and star regarding her SNL booking.
