Steve Martin SNL Monologue 12/14/1991
Oddly reflecting on his previous appearances on Saturday Night Live, Steve Martin lead yet another hilarious monologue during his hosting gig on December 14, 1991. After being reminded of old skits like his "King Tut" routine by then-cast members Chris Farley and Victoria Jackson, Martin burst out in song about how he's "Not Gonna Phone it in Tonight" and finally take the show seriously.

Justin Timberlake SNL Monologue 5/21/2011
Notorious for popping in on random episodes for sketches, songs and digital shorts, Justin Timberlake hosted Saturday Night Live on May 21, 2011, for the season 39 finale and used his SNL monologue to poke fun of himself. In a song about not singing, Timberlake rattled off all the different types of singing he was not going to do, while doing them at the same time. Though the monologue was funny, it was far from his funniest moment on Saturday Night Live, which arguably was his December 2006 appearance in the "D*ck in a Box" digital short.

John Malkovich SNL Monologue 12/6/2008
Airing on December 6, 2008, actor John Malkovich provided some holiday cheer as part of his Saturday Night Live monologue. Donning an itchy Santa hat and inviting children on stage, Malkovich read "Twas the Night Before Christmas." All was well until Malkovich began adding his own depressing and violent commentary on the normally optimistic and cheery lines. Merry Christmas indeed!

Zach Galifianakis SNL Monologue 3/12/2011
Hosting Saturday Night Live for the second time in March 2011, actor and comedian Zach Galifianakis absolutely killed it in his monologue. After poking fun at himself with a few jokes and introducing a few quirky characters, Galifianakis stripped down to a short red dress to perform a rendition of "Tomorrow" from the musical Annie. Though he didn't sing, he played along, giving commentary using a large easel of paper and showing the audience sneak peeks of his pink panties.

Norm Macdonald SNL Monologue 10/23/1999
After appearing as a cast member for five years before his abrupt dismissal, funny guy Norm Macdonald returned to host a season 25 episode on October 23, 1999. He poked fun at his time as a cast member and invitation to host in his monologue by asking why in only a year and a half, the time between his dismissal and hosting invitation, he went from being not funny enough to be allowed in the building to being so funny that he's hosting the show.
