Adam Sandler returning to SNL to host for the first time

Saturday Night Live

Sandler originally joined the show in 1990 as a writer and was part of the cast until 1995, according to a report published by Page Six.

The long-running sketch show's official Twitter account revealed on Friday that Sandler will host the May 4 episode with musical guest Shawn Mendes. 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". The pair also worked together on Sandler's famous Lunch Lady Land song. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.

Huddersfield relegate from Premier League with 6 games to end the season
This season things have not gone according to plan and the club has so far managed just three wins from 32 League games. We tried everything to avoid relegation but at the end we couldn't do it.

Each of the stars had just released two popular movies, Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore, as well as Tommy Boy and Black Sheep respectively so the move was a shock to fans. 'I don't know how good it would be. There are guys who love doing it, who are great at doing it. "I did what I could do on that show".

In 2014, Adam Sandler appeared on Norm Macdonald's podcast, the aptly-titled Norm Macdonald Live, to explain why he has no interest in hosting SNL. Though Sandler has returned to the show a couple times to make quick cameo appearances, this will be his first prominent return to the place that launched his comedy career. But perhaps Sandler's Netflix special has reinvigorated him creatively and we'll see more of the old Adam Sandler.
