With classic skits like "King Tut" and "Common Knowledge," actor Steve Martin has become one of the most unforgettable guest hosts on "Saturday Night Live." The 64-year-old funnyman has hit the stage as host at Studio 8H an impressive 15 times - a record he shares with actor Alec Baldwin.
While hosting the Season 35 finale of "Saturday Night Live," actor Alec Baldwin reached another milestone in his career and tied Steve Martin's record for hosting the show 15 times.

At 88-years-old, Betty White is the oldest person to host "Saturday Night Live." The TV legend hosted a special Mother's Day Special in Season 35 and created a lot of laughs while talking about her "muffins" on the spoof NPR radio show "Delicious Dish." Most notably, her guest appearance was inspired by a Facebook-based campaign that stemmed from her hit Super Bowl commercial for Snickers.
With his "Living Colour" and comedy background, it made perfect sense for funnyman Jim Carrey to host "Saturday Night Live" in 1996.

Actress Candice Bergen was the first woman to host "Saturday Night Live" in Nov. 8, 1975. In one of her famed skits, the "Murphy Brown" star played a foreign correspondent reporter who insults and torments the king of a Middle Eastern country (played by John Belushi) during a TV interview.

Actor Christopher Walken was a host favorite on "Saturday Night Live," appearing on the show seven times.

Comedian-actor Jerry Seinfeld has twice made his mark on the "Saturday Night Live" as guest host. The "Seinfeld" creator and star first appeared on April 18, 1992, then later hosted on Oct. 2, 1999. He made a cameo in May 2010, joining "SNL" cast member Seth Meyers on the ""Really?!" segment.
