In honor of 'Saturday Night Live' celebrating four decades of iconic weekend comedic skits, the Emmy Award-winning show is holding a grand affair with a three-hour event featuring guest appearances from Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift.

The live epic event goes down later this month and in addition to a star-studded lineup of musicians, the show will also mark the return of Eddie Murphy for the first time since 1984. He'll likely play some new reggae tunes like his latest, 'Oh Jah Jah.'

The 40th anniversary episode will surely be one to remember with skits coming from other former 'SNL' staples such as Tina Fey, James Franco and Will Ferrell and a slew of other top names in comedy. Check out the full lineup for the 'SNL' 40th Anniversary Special and the promo video below.
