Who will host the April 1, 2023 episode of Saturday Night Live?

Quinta Brunson! 

April 1 will mark Brunson's SNL debut, but if the appearance is anything like her hilarious role on Abbott Elementary, it's bound to be a fun-filled night. Brunson is the creator and star of the cherished workplace comedy, earning three Emmys and a total of seven nominations along the way for her work on the series. Brunson has been flexing her funny bone for years, and as a writer and creator herself, she's destined to be a shining light in the SNL writer's room. We can't wait to see what the comedian brings to studio 8H because so far, she's never missed.
