Stars Who've Hosted SNL The Most Number of Times

Updated November 25, 2019 389.3k views19 items

This list of the most frequent SNL hosts is impressive. Sure, most of us know that Alec Baldwin has hosted a lot - but did you know that he's hosted a record number of times?! Yep. Who has hosted SNL the most? Those on this list have graced the SNL stage multiple times, and while most are actors and comedians (and former 'SNL' cast members), at least one musician also made it. 

At the moment, there are a dozen members of the so-called "Saturday Night Live Five Timers' Club," meaning they've hosted the show at least five times (some way more than that). Are they the funniest hosts ever? Some are, some aren't (in my opinion). Some people with the most SNL host appearances are ones who I would happily never see on that stage again. I've included plenty of videos, as well, so you can check out the Five Timers past monologues.

Enjoy this list of the most frequent Saturday Night Live hosts, and be sure to vote for your favorites!
