Bernie Sanders will reportedly appear with Larry David on SNL

Larry David as Bernie Sanders on "Saturday Night Live."


Democratic presidential candidate will appear this weekend on Saturday Night Live with his doppelganger, "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David, the New York Times reports.

The trip to New York City for the appearance will briefly take Sanders off the campaign trail just days before the February 9 New Hampshire primaries.

David has already appeared at least twice on Saturday Night Live this campaign season to portray Sanders. The candidate has been a good sport about it: After David portrayed Sanders in a sketch last year, claiming the Vermont senator only has one pair of underwear, Sanders assured CBS that he has an "ample supply of underwear."

When Sanders was asked at a televised town hall this week whether he can do a Larry David impression, Sanders replied, "I am Larry David."

A couple of other 2016 candidates -- Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump -- have already appeared on the sketch comedy show.
