Comedian and actor Chris Rock will host Saturday Night Live alongside musical guest Prince for its Nov. 1 show, NBC announced Tuesday on Twitter.
Rock, who began his career as a start-up comedian, rose to fame when he became a cast member of the NBC sketch comedy show in the early 1990s. Rock left the show in 1993 to join the predominantly African-American sketch comedy show In Living Color, later returning to SNL to host an episode in 1996.
It also isn’t Prince’s first time on SNL, which is celebrating its 40th season. Prince, who now performs with backing band 3rdeyegirl, first appeared on the show in 1981 to perform the song “Partyup.”
