Louis C.K., the red-headed Lou Reed of comedy, will host Saturday Night Live on November 3, with musical guest fun., NBC announced during the show's October 20 broadcast with host/musical guest Bruno Mars. The gig will be the stand-up comedian's first time hosting the late-night sketch comedy showbut considering his show biz credits — which include an ongoing comedy tour, his own Emmy-winning FX sitcom Louie, and a recurring guest role on NBC's Parks and Recreation — first-time jitters probably won't be a problem, even if he did mercilessly mock his own acting inabilities (see it below).

Fun., for their part, mark the show's newfound commitment to putting bona fide chart-toppers on Studio 8H's stage, after last year's Karmin incident. NBC will re-air the season opener, featuring host Seth MacFarlane and musical guest Frank Ocean, this week (October 27).
