It was just a matter of time before Saturday Night Live invited Ayo Edebiri to host the show, and her moment is finally here! The Bear star will make her SNL hosting debut next month, and she’ll be joined by the musical guest Jennifer Lopez.
Edebiri has been pretty busy picking awards since the start of 2024, and we’ve seen her collect Golden Globe, Critics Choice Award, and Emmy this month—all in one week! Shortly after this impressive trophy sweep with her hit show The Bear, the young actress has been invited to make her hosting debut on SNL.
In addition to being one of the busiest stars in Hollywood last year, with about a dozen credits to her name in 2023 alone, Edebiri has an extensive comedy background. Before finding success with The Bear, she did stand-up comedy and served as a writer on a number of comedy shows, from Netflix’s Big Mouth to Apple’s Dickinson.
Edebiri will host Saturday Night Live on February 3, and she’ll be joined by the musical guest Jennifer Lopez. J.Lo is somewhat of an SNL veteran, and she’s returning to 30 Rock to promote her upcoming album This Is Me… Now, set to hit the shelves on February 16.
