The November slate of hosts and musicals guests for Saturday Night Live has been released. Though some familiar names are on the docket, November will also see a number of new contributors grace the legendary NBC television stage.
The month’s first weekend show, November 4, will see a repeat hosting gig from Larry David, as well as Miley Cyrus return as musical guest. David made headlines last year on SNL even when he wasn’t signed on to host. He appeared in multiple episodes as Bernie Sanders. The impression almost created itself, a la Tina Fey as Sarah Palin a few years ago. David and Sanders look and sound an awful lot alike. From there, it wasn’t hard to fit him into sketches.
As host, David utilized a greater wheel of talents, though he was very much Larry David through and through. That is not a bad thing, and it is no wonder the show invited him back to host again.
The same goes for Cyrus, who is one of the better performers and musical personalities working today. She will surely find herself involved in a sketch or two during her appearance.
As the month progresses, we get a glimpse at some brand new faces. Tiffany Haddish and Chance the Rapper will both be hosting episodes for the first time. Chance has appeared before as musical guest but never as host. In just a few weeks, we will see if he is up to the task.
