The Best SNL Monologues of All Time

As one of the longest running series in television history, each episode of the sketch comedy Saturday Night Live starts with a skit and a monologue from the host, but only a select few can be part of the best Saturday Night Live monologues of all time. To make this list, the SNL monologues have to be funny, memorable or even so controversial that it prompted the host to be banned from the show for life.

What hosts have performed the best SNL monologues? It should be no surprise that Steve Martin, who has hosted the show 15 times over 39 seasons, comes in twice among the best SNL monologues. He however has some stiff competition in other great monologues from newer hosts such as notable performances in 2011 from Zach Galifianakis and Justin Timberlake.

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.
