NBC announced Thursday that stand-up comedian and former “SNL” writer Mulaney is set to host on Feb. 29. The show will feature musical guest David Byrne, who currently appears in Broadway’s “David Byrne’s American Utopia.” In December, Netflix released Mulaney’s new variety special “John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch” on the streaming platform.
Craig will grace the stage in Studio 8H on March 7, just a little more than a month before he reprises the role of James Bond in “No Time to Die,” which hits theaters on April 10. Returning for his third appearance as musical guest that week is The Weeknd.
It was previously announced that RuPaul would make his “SNL” hosting debut this Saturday, featuring musical guest Justin Bieber. RuPaul is currently the host of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and stars in Netflix series “AJ and the Queen.” Bieber’s performance on Saturday will mark his third time on the show; he recently released the single “Yummy” from his upcoming album.
Other “SNL” hosts this season have included “Star Wars” and “Marriage Story” star Adam Driver, “Fleabag” star and creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Chance the Rapper, Kristen Stewart, Woody Harrelson and Eddie Murphy. In one of his only appearances on “SNL” since he was a cast member in the early 1980s, Murphy made his anticipated return to the sketch comedy show on Dec. 21.
“SNL” is currently in its 45th season.
