Louis C.K. to Host SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE on November 3

     October 21, 2012


Though fans will have to wait until 2014 for new episodes of Louis C.K.’s brilliant comedy series Louie, the comedian will be gracing the airwaves again in just a couple of short weeks.  During last night’s Bruno Mars-hosted telecast, it was announced that C.K. will be hosting Saturday Night Live on November 3rd.  This will be C.K.’s first time hosting the long-running sketch series, and I can’t wait to see how his comedy will be put to use in the SNL universe.  Interestingly, it appears that he actually made an uncredited appearance on SNL in a 1995 episode hosted by Chevy Chase as “escaped prisoner.”  C.K. is longtime friends with SNL vet Amy Poheler and has a recurring role on Parks and Recreation, and I’d be lying if I said it wouldn’t be great to see the actress make some sort of cameo appearance in the episode.  He’ll be joined by musical guest fun.
