Tina Fey and Amy Schumer to Host ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Final Season 43 Episodes
Joining the Stern Show veterans are musical guests Kacey Musgraves and Nicki MinajApril 18, 2018
Two titans of comedy are headed back to Studio 8H in May.
Amy Schumer and Tina Fey are hosting the last two episodes of “Saturday Night Live” Season 43. The sketch-comedy show broke the news Wednesday on Twitter.
Amy, who last week joined the Stern Show to discuss her new comedy “I Feel Pretty,” will host the season’s penultimate episode on May 12 alongside musical guest and country music sensation Kacey Musgraves. Tina, meanwhile, will host the May 19 season finale along with musical guest and BBMA-nominated rapper Nicki Minaj.
Amy has previously hosted “SNL” once, in 2015, while Tina returns to host for the sixth time after serving as the NBC sketch show’s head writer, cast member, and Weekend Update anchor for the better part of a decade.
Tina discussed her “Saturday Night Live” days at length during one of her recent visits to the Stern Show, even revealing the genesis of her infamous Sarah Palin impression which took America by storm during the 2008 election season. “That was probably the biggest thing I was ever a part of,” Tina told Howard. “It was crazy.”
Listen to a clip from their conversation (below).
Amy and Tina aren’t the only proven comedians taking the “SNL” reins in May, either. As previously announced, “Community” and “Atlanta” star Donald Glover will pull double duty during the May 5 episode, serving both as musical guest (under his stage name Childish Gambino) and host ahead of the release of his upcoming film “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
