Six reasons to get excited about Louis C.K.'s return to 'Saturday Night Live'
He's baaaaack! Or at least, he will be soon. Comedian Louis C.K. is returning to "Saturday Night Live" this weekend for his second time as host, and for fans of the funnyman — and those who just enjoy big laughs — that's good news.
The "Louie" star's history with the show goes back way beyond his prior hosting duties. He was also responsible for good times on the sketch show before he was such a familiar face. And that's just one of the reasons why we're so excited to see him come back to "SNL."
'Saturday TV Funhouse'
In the 1990s, C.K. joined longtime "SNL" writer Robert Smigel to contribute to Smigel's recurring animated bit "Saturday TV Funhouse." He co-wrote 15 of the retro-looking and always-biting shorts, including some of the most memorable "Funhouse" clips to date, like "The Real Peanuts Christmas" sendup from 2002.
