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.

Steve Martin SNL Monologue 10/23/1976
In his first time hosting Saturday Night Live, Steve Martin went from a relative unknown to an overnight sensation with his October 23, 1976, SNL monologue.

Steve Martin would go on to host the show a total of a 15 times, which after 39 seasons, was tied for the most with Alec Baldwin.

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!

Norm MacDonald SNL Monologue 10/23/1999
After being fired as a cast member of the show just a year and a half earlier, Norm MacDonald was invited to return and host the show. His monologue is the opposite of grateful for the invitation to take the stage once again, and the product is comedy gold.

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.

Paul Simon SNL Monologue 11/20/1976Hosting during just the second season of the series, musician Paul Simon dressed as a turkey during his hilarious Saturday Night Live monologue. As part of their Thanksgiving episode, Simon "loosened up" for his November 20, 1976, hosting gig and sang "Still Crazy After All These Years." Things took a turn for the worse later prompting Simon to leave the stage in humiliation to change into something less "alienating."
