New York -  Mick Jagger will test his comic skills later this month as host of the Saturday Night Live season finale.

The Rolling Stones frontman has been a musical guest twice on the long-running NBC show, and the network said on Thursday he will perform musically on the May 19 finale. But he has never been host before, a job that usually requires participation in several comic skits.

The Rolling Stones mark their 50th anniversary this year but have yet to announce any activities to commemorate the occasion.

Jagger last year put out a disc as part of a group called SuperHeavy, which also included reggae singer Damian Marley and former Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart.
