Marcello Hernandez bills himself as a writer, comedian and producer, and is a Cuban-Dominican stand-up who has opened for Tim Dillon, Jim Breuer, Mark Viera, Gilbert Gottfried and others.

Michael Longfellow hails from Arizona and has done stand up in Los Angeles.

“Saturday Night Live” is navigating its way through a seismic shift in cast. Alex Moffat, Melissa Villaseñor and Aristotle Athari are not expected to return to the show, nor are McKinnon, Bryant, Kyle Mooney and Pete Davidson. What’s more, senior producer Lindsay Shookus, is parting ways with the program after years of managing talent relations.
The 48th season of “Saturday Night Live” airs Oct. 1 on NBC and will also stream live on Peacock. NBC also plans to broadcast live episodes of the show on Oct. 8 and Oct. 15.
The guests are as follows:
