Larry David Graduates From SNL Cameo to Host on February 6
Seinfeld creator Larry David’s SNL cameos as Bernie Sanders (or just plain heckling Trump) have been a highlight of Season 41, and the next step is more than prettay, prettay, prettay good. David will make his hosting debut on February 6, joined by musical guest The 1975.
SNL confirmed the news on-air during Ronda Rousey’s hosting debut, making David the third consecutive star of 2016 to make their hosting debut. For those unaware, David actually began his SNL tenure as a writer in 1984, famously getting only one sketch to air, and in the final slot of the evening at that.
Over the past season, David has appeared in cold opens as presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, also appearing offstage during Donald Trump’s monologue, shouting “Trump’s a racist!” in response to then-internet backlash encouraging audiences to disrupt the episode. Elsewise, The 1975 will similarly be making their SNL debut.
In the meantime, Ronda Rousey seems off to a strong start, but what can we expect from Larry David’s first full-fledged hosting?
