Looks like 2015 is shaping up to be a busy year for funny man Kevin Hart. In addition to touring around the country for his ‘Let Me Explain Tour’, the Ride Along star is confirmed to host Saturday Night Live on Jan. 17, which marks the first new episode of the year.

The episode will air during the same weekend that Hart’s comedy The Wedding Ringer hits theaters. A musical guest for the episode has not yet been announced, but this appearance is Hart’s second time hosting.

Hart also stars with SNL alum Will Ferrell in Get Hard, hitting theaters in March.

Congrats Kevin!
