Twenty-four years after he said goodbye, one of Saturday Night Live's most popular cast members ever will return to 30 Rockefeller Center to host the show for the first time.

The amusing man will make his debut as host on May 4 along with returning musical guest Shawn Mendes.

The 52-year-old comic will host SNL for the first time in his career in May, it was announced by the show via Twitter on Friday. Some of his most famous performances from the era include his portrayal of the effusive Opera Man, tired husband Hank Gelfand, and the infamous "Chanukah Song".

Sinnett said making the software updates to each plane will take about an hour and will begin immediately. The FBI has also joined a criminal investigation to look into the certification of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 .

"We are happy to welcome Adam back to SNL in what is sure to be a special night", executive producer Lorne Michaels said in a statement. Sandler and Farley were both fired from "SNL" in 1995, but Sandler told The Daily Beast in 2014 that "we kind of quit at the same time as being fired". I just don't know how good I'd be doing it.

The comedian will return to the show that made him famous for his first hosting gig, Variety reported.

The actor is also on a standup comedy tour to promote his recently released Netflix special "100% Fresh". His latest comedy special, 100% Fresh, is now streaming on Netflix, and was praised as an evolution in his stand-up, previously synonymous with an array of goofy-voiced characters reciting not-quite punchlines.
