Guess who’s headed back to “Saturday Night Live?” It’s everyone’s favorite Greek comedian Zach Galifianakis! NBC has just announced that the star will appear on an upcoming episode of the sketch comedy series next month marking his second appearance. The first time he hosted was on March 6, 2010 with musical guest Vampire Weekend.
This year, Galifianakis will take the SNL stage on March 12, almost exactly one year after his debut appearance. The musical guest that weekend will be Jessie J, an English singer and songwriter best known for her tracks “Price Tag” and “Do it Like a Dude.” We don’t know about you but we’re excited to see Galifianakis host again, we just don’t know what he’ll be promoting. The Hangover Part II doesn’t hit theaters until the summer.
One of the things we’ve always loved about Galifianakis is his ability to utilize the awkward pause. No one does weird and uncomfortable like him. He will sit and stare at you until you laugh. If he can’t get you that way he’ll try to serenade you with a piano solo filled with strange lyrics that make no sense. In other words, he has multiple aces up his sleeve, and that’s why we love him.
Are you excited to see Galifianakis co-host the show again?
