Elon Musk will host NBC’s Saturday Night Live for the first time on May 8, the long-running sketch comedy show announced over the weekend.
The CEO of the car company Tesla and the aerospace company SpaceX was already seen in films such as “Iron Man 2” in 2010 and in TV shows such as “The Big Bang Theory” in 2015.
The singer Miley Cyrus will appear in her sixth SNL appearance as a musical guest on the show.
The announcement comes on the same day that Musk celebrates the successful docking of the SpaceX spacecraft Dragon with the International Space Station.
It is unusual, if not entirely unheard of, for someone in the business community to host SNL. Steve Forbes, for example, hosted the show in 1996, even though he was running for president at the time. Donald Trump hosted SNL in 2015. At that time, he was also running for president.
