Adam Sandler is returning to 'SNL.' Here's when

Adam Sandler attends the SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration at Rockefeller Plaza

Twenty-four years after he said goodbye, one of Saturday Night Live's most popular cast members ever will return to 30 Rockefeller Center to host the show for the first time.

The date of his appearance will be May 4, and Sandler will be joined by musical guest Shawn Mendes.

Sandler got his start on the show as a writer back in 1990.

Vue experienced similar problems, asking fans to "please be patient" as the company attempted to get their website back online. In a post to social media it said: "We're experiencing high levels of demand for Avengers: Endgame tickets".

Sandler, who appeared on the show from 1991-95 having joined in 1990 as a writer, now appears in his latest Netflix comedy special 100% Fresh. He created famous characters while on the show including Cajun Man, Opera Boy and Canteen Boy. There are guys who love doing it, who are great at doing it. I did what I can do on the show'. While he has returned sporadically for cameos (including during the 40th anniversary special, where he performed a song with Lonely Island), he has been reluctant to actually host.

Chevy Chase was the first comedian to return to the show as a host and others include Tina Fey, Dana Carvey, David Spade, Will Ferrel, Jimmy Fallon and a laundry list of others. But perhaps Sandler's Netflix special has reinvigorated him creatively and we'll see more of the old Adam Sandler. Later this year his film Murder Mystery will premiere on the platform.
