Amy Schumer is hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time tonight, a true indication that Schumer’s star has risen to the top. Although performing on the lauded variety show in front of a live audience can sometimes rile up the nerves of even the most seasoned actor, Schumer, whose roots are in stand-up comedy, is expected to take the evening in stride.

Fellow actor and comedian Kevin Hart, however, wanted Schumer to feel the love and support from someone who has been in her shoes, just in case Schumer was feeling a little insecure about tonight. According to Us Weekly, Schumer recently posted a text from Hart to her Twitter account, sharing Kevin Hart’s hilarious, “hostile” advice with Amy’s fans.

Hart’s humorous text tells Schumer, “If you get nervous during your monologue just tell the audience you know me. I promise it will help.” Hart then goes on to tell Schumer she could try to FaceTime with him but that he most likely won’t be available because he’s “busy doing stuff.”

Amy Schumer has had a whirlwind year with her comedy sketch series Inside Amy Schumer receiving rave reviews and Schumer earning her first Emmy for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series. Schumer’s starring role in the summer sleeper Trainwreck also received critical acclaim and the film currently sits as the nineteenth top movie of 2015 according to Box Office Mojo, raking in nearly $110 million so far.
