People often forget Jada has some enviable comedic ability from her days on A Different World to her voicing a hippo in Madagascar. We can just see the SNL Nutty Professor sketch now…

Damn, Gina! How could Tisha Campbell-Martin never have hosted SNL? Maybe A.J. Johnson or Martin Lawrence will make and appearance and take us back to the good ol' days.

This funny lady had us rolling during her stint on Comedy Central's Reno 911. Just give her a sheriff's badge and let the good times roll.

Honestly, during her opening monologue she should just light someone's car on fire and walk away. That's all she'd need to do.
