Aziz Ansari to Make ’SNL’ Hosting Debut


will be returning from its regular holiday hiatus next week, and they’re looking to come back with a bang. The show has announced the hosts and musical guests for the first two episodes back, and they’re looking to be good ones. On January 14th, Rogue One’s Felicity Jones will host the show for her first time; joining her will be fellow first time musical guest Sturgill Simpson.

The exciting bit for comedy fans? The following week, Master of None and star Aziz Ansari will make his first appearance as host of the show, a long time coming for Ansari, an Emmy-award winning actor with three stand-up specials under his belt. Ansari will be accompanied by rapper Big Sean, who will also be making his SNL debut.

You can catch Ansari’s inaugural SNL episode on January 21st. Ansari’s Netflix show Master of None is set to return for a second season in April.
