For the first time in 18 years, Chris Rock is hosting SNL.
Rock was on SNL from 1990-1993. He was in good company: David Spade, Adam Sandler, and Chris Farley were also cast members at the time. He left the show for In Living Color, seeing it as a better artistic opportunity…and the show was cancelled a month later. Funny thing, though: Rock still managed to do all right for himself. 😉
Rock appears with musical guest Prince…who is, reportedly, going to perform an “uninterrupted, eight-minute jam session”…? Of course he is. It’s Prince.
