Louis C.K. Appears in Promos Announcing His Upcoming SNL Hosting Gig

Louis C.K. is ready to make his triumphant return on NBC’s Saturday Night Live

The 46-year-old Mexican American actor/comedian appears alongside SNL cast member Kenan Thompson in a series of promos announcing his hosting gig on the network’s long-running sketch comedy series this weekend.

In one of the clips, the Thompson asks the Emmy-winning creator and star of FX’s Louie what the “C.K.” stands for. After receiving a rather mundane response, Thompson whispered his previous (possibly obscene) guess in C.K.’s ear. Thompson: “What? You look like the type of guy who would do that!” Louis C.K.: “What’s wrong with you?! Why would you …?”

U.K. singer-songwriter Sam Smith, whose hits include “Money on My Mind,” “Lay Me Down” and “Stay With Me,” will be the musical guest this weekend.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays at 11:30 pm ET.
