It’s always a gamble when a professional athlete hosts “Saturday Night Live,” simply because many of these jocks are just not cut out to perform comedy, or even be on a stage. Sometimes the gamble pays off, oftentimes, it does not. In this episode, Nick looks back at 5 SNL episodes that were hosted by jocks, and analyzes what worked and what didn’t, what was funny and what wasn’t, and more. The five athletes profiled on this episode are: Lance Armstrong, Michael Phelps, Ronda Rousey, Michael Jordan and Peyton Manning, and the results range from awful (Phelps, Rousey), to funny (Jordan) to absolutely hilarious (Manning). You’ll hear sketches and bits from the shows, the stories behind some of the comedy, the weird cameos by much funnier people in order to help the jocks out, and also a rundown of other non-performers and politicians who hosted in the past as part of SNL’s stunt casting.  This is the first in a series of episodes dedicated to the fun (and sometimes disastrous) topic of jocks hosting SNL.
