Louis C.K. will host Saturday Night Live on November 3rd, with musical guests Fun., NBC announced during the show's October 21st broadcast. 

While the episode will mark C.K.'s debut as an SNL host, he's no stranger to the show, having worked as a writer for Robert Smigel's animated "Saturday TV Funhouse."

The comedian, who is currently in the midst of a national standup tour, recently announced that he will be taking an extended hiatus from Louie, the award-winning show that he writes, directs, produces, edits, and stars in. He expects to resume shooting in October 2013 with a return to the air in May 2014. His SNL appearance will come just after the end of his standup tour's seven-night run in New York City.
