SNL, Here He Comes! A Look Back at Some of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Funniest Moments


Tonight, Lin-Manuel Miranda will host Saturday Night Live with musical guest Twenty One Pilots. And in a year dominated by HAMILTON, hosting SNL is the icing on the cake.

Miranda will soon begin filming MARY POPPINS for Disney, opposite Emily Blunt. He recently composed original music for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, and his original music will be featured in Disney's upcoming animated film MOANA.

Miranda also wrote the music and lyrics for the musical In the Heights, which opened on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in March 2008. His written work for the show earned him numerous accolades, including the 2008 Tony Award for Best Original Score and the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. Miranda's performance in the show's lead role of Usnavi earned him a nomination for the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical.

This year, Miranda received multiple TONY AWARDS for his work on HAMILTON. He is a 2015 recipient of the MacArthur "Genius" Award, and received the 2016 Edward Kennedy Prize for Drama.

While we count down the hours until his SNL debut, BroadwayWorld is looking back at some of his funniest moments!
