Aziz Ansari will host the first ‘SNL’ episode in Trump’s America

Aziz Ansari will host Saturday Night Live on Jan. 21, the program announced Tuesday.

The actor — best known for his work on Parks and Recreation and Netflix’s Master of None — is also an accomplished stand up. 

It wasn’t immediately clear what project Ansari will be promoting; a Season 2 premiere date for Master of None has not been set but is expected later this year. In September, Ansari and showrunner Alan Yang won an Emmy for outstanding writing in a comedy series for their work on that show.

Fun fact: It will be the first episode of SNL after Donald Trump is sworn in as president, so that’s something! 

The first-time host will be joined by Big Sean, whose new album, I Decided, drops in February. 

A week earlier, Rogue One‘s Felicity Jones will host the first new SNL episode of 2017, alongside musical guest Sturgill Simpson, the country music fave who will take on Adele and Beyonce for Album of the Year at the Grammys next month.
