Fans of the New York Giants know it, but the rest of the country may not: quarterback Eli Manning is actually a pretty funny guy. In addition to his various commercials (see ESPN spot below), Manning's sense of humor is often experienced by his teammates, who are frequently the subject of his pranks. The world will now have the opportunity to see Eli's funny side (not just his "funny face") when he hosts Saturday Night Live on May 5th.
In a position he's become used to, Eli will have a lot to live up to as his older brother and former Indianapolis Colts quarterback, Peyton Manning, once hit one out of the park while hosting SNL. Eli appeared in the audience that night, so he'll at least have some first-hand experience to work with as he prepares his sketch(es).
In addition to Easy-E, R&B recording artist Rihanna will be the musical guest that night.
Saturday Night Live airs from 11:30 PM until 1:00 AM, so be sure to set your DVR's/Tivo's.
