'Saturday Night Live' Season 43 With John Mulaney: Everything to Know Before Show Airs

Comedian and actor John Mulaney will return to Saturday Night Live this week as the show's host, alongside musical guest Jack White. 

Mulaney spent six seasons as a writer for SNL, beginning in 2008, where he was known for his hilarious “Weekend Update" sketches, especially the character Stefon ("New York's hottest club is..."), played by Bill Hader. He won an Emmy for outstanding original music lyrics in 2011 for his work on Justin Timberlake's musical monologue and has received several Emmy nominations for his writing. But he rarely appeared in front of the camera during his tenure on the show. 

Saturday will be Mulaney's first time as SNL host. But considering all his previous work on the sketch comedy series (and from the looks his happy feet in the promo for this week's show), Mulaney's seems up to the challenge.

Find out everything to know about the upcoming SNL below.

Who: Joining Mulaney will be musical guest Jack White, who will be returning to SNL for the second time as a solo artist. He previously performed on the show with his White Stripes bandmate, Meg White, in 2002.

When: The show will air at its usual time, 11:30 p.m. ET.

How to Watch: SNL will air on the NBC network. Viewers can live stream the show on NBC's website or Hulu.

Extras: For clips of Mulaney's “Weekend Update," check out the SNL YouTube channel after the show airs on Saturday. There will likely be tons of SNL Twitter chatter during the night, which fans can join in by following the hashtag #SNL on social media.
