Saturday Night Live is back and last night's episode featured Adele as host and HER as the musical guest. The episode saw a fun 2019 fortune teller sketch and jokes about Rudy Giuliani's unexpected appearance in the Borat sequel. While Jim Carrey's Joe Biden impression is still being debated, SNL seems to be having a successful season so far. In fact, fans are particularly excited about next week's line-up. John Mulaney will be returning to host on Halloween with musical guest The Strokes.
"Three things define New York City: SNL, the Strokes, and Ed Koch. Koch is dead, so they got me. I am so goddamn excited. 4th time up. Wow and wow and wow," Mulaney tweeted. You can view the post below:

In addition to his stand-up career, our readers might know Mulaney best for some of his voice work, including playing Spider-Ham in the Oscar-winning animated film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Around the time of the movie's release, Mulaney pitched a Spider-Ham solo film.
"[Spider-Ham] is a fun guy who is capable of great rage," Mulaney joked. "To go see him back at the Daily Beagle – I could see a Watergate-like story at the Beagle where he's both a reporter and Spider-Ham by night."
"[I] never thought that the Clark Kents and the Peter Parkers leaned enough into the day job," he continued. "This would be more like The Post or All The President's Men or Spotlight, but we'd make it family-friendly. Lots of bacon jokes, or, 'that's hamfisted.'"

John Mulaney and The Strokes can be seen on Saturday Night Live this October 31st.
