Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is taking his talent from the field to the screen to host Saturday Night Live tomorrow, March 4. Before you tune in to see Kelce’s moment in the spotlight, take a look at other Kansas Citians who made their way to the SNL stage.

Jason Sudeikis

Not only did Sudeikis host in October 2021; he was a cast member on the show from 2005 to 2013. He is now starring in “Ted Lasso,” which is loosely based on his basketball coach from Shawnee Mission West High.

Paul Rudd

Home grown in Overland Park, Rudd made his first SNL hosting appearance in 2008, and more recently in 2021.

Heidi Gardner

Gardner was voted “Most likely to be a cast member of Saturday Night Live” by her senior class after growing up in KCMO — she is now on her fifth season as a cast member.
