Martin and Short are both familiar faces around Studio 8H: Martin has hosted a whopping 15 times, while Short was a one-time SNL cast member and has hosted three times. (The pair have also made approximately a zillion cameos over the years.) They’ve also co-hosted the show before, joining their Three Amigos costar Chevy Chase to host a 1986 episode.

Double hosts are rare but not unheard of on SNL: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co-hosted the Christmas episode in 2015, and past pairings also include Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, Mr. T and Hulk Hogan, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
