“Saturday Night Live” head writers Michael Che and Colin Jost are set to host the Emmys and they gave Variety a small preview of what the illustrious night has in store.
“Somewhere between what we do as stand-ups and what we do for Weekend Update, I’m guessing, some mix of that,” said Jost. “It’ll generally be a very ‘SNL’ event, and there’ll be a lot of our cast members, a lot of former cast members. The nice thing about the Emmys is that a lot of the people who are there who are nominated, we’ve been fortunate and they’ve come and hosted the show so they’ll be able to participate, hopefully, and do some things.”
“You can expect a very, very long speech from me,” Che joked. “A very long speech.”
