Neither Martin nor Short are strangers to “SNL”.
Martin, in fact, first hosted in 1976, creating such iconic comedy creations as Jorge Fenstruck — one half of the “wild and crazy” Czech Fenstruck brothers alongside Dan Aykroyd — and Theodoric of York, medieval doctor. This will mark Martin’s 16th time as host.
Short, on the other hand, has only hosted three times, but can boast of being a full-fledged cast member during the show’s 10th season. Meanwhile, both Martin and Short have made numerous “SNL” cameos over the years.
