“Saturday Night Live” season 39, episode 16: “Louis C.K., Sam Smith” premieres tonight on NBC.
In this week’s episode, Comedian Louis C.K. hosts “SNL” alongside musical guest, Sam Smith. This is his second time on the sketch comedy show, but the history goes back way beyond his prior hosting duties.
NBC’s description of “Saturday Night Live” is as follows:
“A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band and a pop-cultural guest host each week. Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here. With live show surprises, especially those timed to the national elections – from Barack Obama’s surprise walk-on, Hillary Clinton’s performance opposite Amy Poehler, and Sen. John McCain’s “Weekend Update” appearance – SNL is making headlines and influencing the political dialogue while skewering it at the same time. Beyond politics, the show’s cast of recurring characters and take on pop culture targets remains spot-on. The addition of the show’s Emmy Award-winning SNL Digital Shorts continues to keep the show as current today as it was when it debuted.”
“Saturday Night Live” season 39, episode 16: “Louis C.K., Sam Smith” airs March 29 on NBC at 11:30 p.m. EST. Check out the preview of the upcoming episode below.
