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 guested twice on the long-running NBC show, and the network said on Thursday he will also perform on the May 19 finale. But he has never been a 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 commemorative activities.
