Louis CK will host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 3. This will be his first time as host, though the Emmy-winning star of Louie and revered stand-up comedian helped write several of Robert Smigel’s “Saturday TV Funhouses” over the years, and he once appeared uncredited in an SNL sketch back in 1995. Not for nothing, but he also made his bones writing for Chris Rock, Conan O’Brien, Dana Carvey, and David Letterman, so it should be fascinating to see what stand-up’s biggest star brings to Studio 8H.

Fun. will join him as musical guest.
