(CNN) - Adam Sandler is headed home to Studio 8H.
The man who gave the world "The Chanukah Song" will make his return to the "SNL" stage on May 4 for what will be his first time hosting.
Sandler joined the show in 1990 as a writer and was a member of the "SNL" cast from 1991-1995 before being fired. (It all worked out for him.)
In a statement, executive producer Lorne Michaels said, "We are happy to welcome Adam back to 'SNL' in what is sure to be a special night."
In his time on the show, Sandler was known for characters like Opera Man, Cajun Man, and Hank Gelfand.
Hell. Yes. Adam Sandler will be returning to his old stomping grounds on May 4th. I'll be honest, SNL has lost a step or two since they heyday of Sandler, Farley, Spade and Co. but they'll churn out a grade A skit every now and then. It's hard work making top notch content week in and week out with less than a six day turn around. I can't imagine what the hours are on those writes and rehearsals. Proabably why they run their seasons like a school year with a few breaks and a long summer vacation. Sandler said in an interview he didn't want to host ever because he feels he's "too slow" now...Ummm based on his latest standup special, he's as sharp as ever. I'll definitely be tuning in on May 4th to watch the magic happen. - @Traceahamilton
