SNL: Lin-Manuel Miranda brings back Ham4Ham

Posted on

NBC

Ham4Ham is back…kind of. Really just for this weekend’s Saturday Night Live.

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and his special guests used to entertain people on the sidewalk with free performances. Since he’s hosting SNL tonight, Miranda decided to pop over to see all the people waiting to join the live audience — not with a performance, but with pizza and hugs. 

“This has been your Ham4Ham show, except it’s not a lottery. We’re just, you know, you’re waiting in line. That’s how it works,” Miranda said into a megaphone. 

Miranda’s hosting turn with musical guest Twenty One Pilots follows Margot Robbie, who hosted the SNL premiere. Emily Blunt assumes the duties next week, with Tom Hanks on the docket the week after.
