Steve Martin and Martin Short can’t stop having fun together — and making history while they’re at it.

The comedic duo, who have a rich background of collaborating, are about to embark on a third season of their breakaway Hulu series, Only Murders in the Building.

But before Steve Martin and Martin Short do, they’ll co-host the Dec. 10 episode of Saturday Night Live. Brandi Carlile is scheduled to be the musical guest.

Steve Martin and Martin Short’s Saturday Night Live History

As everyone knows, both performers have SNL pedigree.

Steve Martin has appeared on 27 episodes of the show and guest-hosted 15 of them. In fact, he is edging closer to the record 17 hosting spots set by Alec Baldwin — who took the record previously held by Martin.

Meanwhile, Martin Short was a Saturday Night Live cast member from 1984 to 1985, after which he appeared multiple times on the show, including for its 40th anniversary special in 2015.

Today recently recapped the occasions on which two people hosted SNL. They include Peter Cook and Dudley Moore in January 1976, Mr. T and Hulk Hogan in March 1985, George Wendt and Francis Ford Coppola in March 1986, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in May 2004, and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler in December 2015.

As PopCulture.com notes, the Dec. 10 episode will be Steve Martin’s first time hosting SNL since 2009. The website also said Steve Martin and Martin Short — along with Chevy Chase — hosted an episode of the variety show in 1986, around the same time their movie Three Amigos hit theaters.

“Drumroll please…Steve Martin and Martin Short!” the NBC website said. “That’s right! In a special co-hosting event, the two actors will jointly return to the SNL stage.”
