13 of the Youngest “Saturday Night Live” Hosts of All


Feb 28, 2023

Though “Saturday Night Live” is technically for adult audiences — leading to its late-night airtime — the show is a fan favorite for people of all ages. And while most of the people who’ve stepped up to host the show were old enough to legally drink at the after party, there were 13 hosts who got the nod from Lorne Michaels to host the sketch show before their 21st birthday — “Wednesday” and “Scream 6” star Jenna Ortega is the latest to join their company.

She’s set to host “SNL” this March, making her debut at just 20 years old. Other superstars who share this honor include Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, and Taylor Lautner. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen also hosted the show together, and Miley Cyrus took over hosting honors shortly after “Hannah Montana” ended. But some “SNL” hosts have been even younger. Though the show has moved away from this in recent years, Macauley Culkin, Drew Barrymore, Fred Savage, and Jodie Foster all hosted the show when they were just kids, making them the youngest of all.

Ahead, check out all 13 of the youngest people to ever host “SNL,” alongside their ages when they got the honor and some of their most memorable sketches from their appearances.
