After Pete Davidson returned to the late night comedy to open Season 49 alongside musical guest Ice Spice, with Bad Bunny pulling double duty the week after, “SNL” has set the lineup for the Oct. 28 episode: Nate Bargatze will make his hosting debut, joined by Foo Fighters as the musical guest.
Bargatze is currently touring the U.S. of a standup set titled “Be Funny.” Earlier this year, he released the comedy special “Hello, World” on Amazon Prime Video, with previous specials including 2021’s “The Greatest Average American” and 2019’s “The Tennessee Kid” streaming on Netflix. He was also a part of Netflix’s 2017 comedy collection “The Standups” after releasing his first two albums, “Yelled at by a Clown” and “Full Time Magic.”
“Comedian Nate Bargatze hosted the 45th season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” (SNL), during which the Foo Fighters made their ninth appearance as the musical guest. The band consists of Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, Rami Jaffee, and Josh Freese. They are currently touring in support of their 11th album, titled “But Here We Are.” The Foo Fighters’ previous albums include “The Colour and Shape,” “There Is Nothing Left to Lose,” and “Wasting Light.”
In addition to Nate Bargatze, the October 14th episode of SNL featured appearances by comedian Pete Davidson and rapper Ice Spice. The show also had surprise cameos by Taylor Swift and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, whose romantic relationship has garnered significant attention and brought a new audience to NFL games in recent weeks.”
