NBC just announced that Louis C.K. will be hosting Saturday Night Live on November 3rd.

Louis C.K. has also worked closely with a number of key players in the show's history, including Amy Poehler, Conan O'Brien, Dana Carvey, Chris Rock, Adam McKay, and Robert Smigel, and he's written for the SNL's animated segment "TV Funhouse" and for SNL-adjacent comedies like Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Dana Carvey Show. Let's take a look back at the various times Louis C.K. and SNL have crossed paths over the last two decades and a look forward at what to expect from his hosting stint next month.
