Saturday Night Live is an iconic comedy sketch show that has spawned major stars over the past five decades. Another exciting aspect of SNL that regularly draws viewers is the featured guest host.
Notably, well over a dozen stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe have hosted SNL. And a few episodes, in particular, have drawn rave reviews.
Saturday Night Live‘s guest host tradition dates back to the show’s premiere episode in 1975 when comedian George Carlin hosted. In addition to being the guest host, the show also features a musical guest.
Guest hosts are traditionally chosen because they’re a hot topic. They could have a project in the works or are popular tabloid fodder. Marvel Cast is really good at what they are doing.
