Chris Rock will take the stage in Studio 8H as host of Saturday Night Live’s 46th season premiere on Oct. 3.
This will mark Rock’s third appearance as host. Rock became a cast member of the popular sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live in 1990. He and other new cast members Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider and David Spade became known as the Bad Boys of SNL.
Megan Thee Stallion will make her SNL musical guest debut. Her latest album, Suga, has garnered over 900 million streams to date and spawned this summer’s smash hit and 3x platinum single, Savage.
Expect Rock’s opening monologue to be sharp AF. We’ll be waiting for his take on Trump, Biden, Black Lives Matter and more. Saturday Night Live is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
