Bill Hader Doesn’t Hesitate When Asked Who The Worst ‘SNL’ Host Ever Was

Published

Bill Hader doesn’t seem to be the biggest fan of Justin Bieber, or a Belieber as they are also known. During his appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Hader was asked an uncomfortable question by a fan caller, to which Hader responded quite comfortably:

“It Was Bieber”

“It was Bieber,” Hader told the caller who asked who the worst SNL host ever was. In February 2013, Justin Bieber was both the show’s musical guest and host, all while promoting his new album, Believe. “He was in a bad place,” Hader explained. “Maybe he’s in a better place, but back then … It was rough.” Fellow guest alongside Hader, Jay Pharoah, didn’t seem to disagree.

“Everybody’s usually on great behavior. Everyone’s very excited and great behavior … most [times] it’s 100 percent,” he added. “Yeah, Bieber’s the only one in my experience. I think it was just, he just seemed like exhausted or just at the end of a rope. He was just so huge.”

Bad Memories

It’s not the first time Hader has described his interactions with Bieber without a hint of warm nostalgia. in the 2014 edition of Live From New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live, the 39-year old comedian said “I really didn’t enjoy having Justin Bieber around. He’s the only one who lived up to the reputation. I think that’s the only time I felt that way in eight years.”

On another occasion, during an interview with Howard Stern in 2013, Hader shared some more of his experience working with Bieber in the infamous SNL episode: “Justin Bieber showed up with, like, 20 guys,” Hader recalled. “He had a guy holding a slice of pizza, a guy holding a Diet Coke. Like, you’re going around the stage and you’re trying to fight through all of these people to get dressed.”

The Flip Side

Nevertheless, it seems as Hader doesn’t hold only bad feelings toward the beloved pop star. The comedian also told Stern in that same interview: “I had nice chats with him when he was doing the scenes … he was a nice guy. He would try to do the best that he can.”

Perhaps, Hader might feel extra sensitive when it comes to SNL, being that he has done eight seasons on the show, in addition to hosting it twice. For many fans and comedians alike, SNL is the Holy Grail of comedy, and hosting it is considered the highest of professional honors. Anything less than the best might be seen as unworthy of the show’s legacy, at least in Hader’s eyes.
