    No he was only a guest host.Steve Martin, Comedian / Writer

    * Born: 14 August 1945

    * Birthplace: Waco, Texas

    * Best Known As: Comic star of The Jerk and Father of the Bride

    Steve Martin got started as a zany and absurdist stand-up comedian in the 1970s, when his comedy albums like Let's Get Small (1977) were big hits; his punch line "Excuuuuse me" became a pop culture catch-phrase. He was also a favorite recurring guest host on Saturday Night Live for many years. In the 1980s he began starring in mainstream movie comedies like Parenthood (1989) and Father of the Bride (1991, co-starring Diane Keaton, with a sequel in 1995). He proved himself an able writer/director, with successes like Roxanne (1987, with Daryl Hannah), LA Story, (1991, with Sarah Jessica Parker) and Bowfinger (1999, with Eddie Murphy). Martin is known for his brainy versatility and continues to work in films, write plays (Picasso at the Lapin Agile), publish humorous essays in the New Yorker magazine, and write books like Shopgirl (2000, made into a 2005 movie starring Martin and Claire Danes). His other films have included the family comedy Cheaper by the Dozen (2003, and a sequel in 2005) and the slapstick remake The Pink Panther (2006, with Martin in the Inspector Clouseau role made famous by Peter Sellers).

    Martin has appeared in four films directed by Carl Reiner, including The Jerk (1979) and Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid (1982)... Martin hosted the annual Academy Award ceremonies in 2001 and 2003.

    I always thought he was a regular Prime Time player but according to web research it looks like he just has hosted more than any other person 14 times to be exact according to Wikipedia the first time was in 1976.

    heres exert:

    In the mid-1970s he made frequent appearances as a stand-up comedian on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. That exposure, together with appearances on HBO's On Location and NBC's Saturday Night Live (SNL) (on which, despite a common misconception, he was never a cast member)

    under becoming household name section if you check it.

    Steve Martin was a regular on Saturday Night Live. I believe that he was one of the first regulars when Saturdy Night Live had started.

    While only a host, Steve Martin was a popular guest, which is why he did so many episodes.

    One time he hosted the show for free in exchange for the music video SNL produced for "King Tut".

    For the record Steve Martin was one of the greats. But apparently just a host. This is a link with the cast list by year.

    He was never a regular on the show - a lot of people think he was a regular because he's hosted so many times. I think he holds the record - something like 14 times! He's one wild 'n crazy guy.
