SNL: Watch Dan Levy’s Opening Monologue | Video
On Feb. 6, Dan Levy made his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live with a charming monologue. “Somewhere my 13-year-old self has fainted in like a really needy, melodramatic way,” he stated with a grin. When discussing the highs and lows of his 2020, he couldn’t help but include Schitt’s Creek, which earned nine Emmys and Dan the personal honor of being recognized on the street. Granted, now people keep shouting “Ew!” at him; something he said “will now haunt me for the rest of my life.” He then took us on a tour of the SNL set, showing all the “safety measures” the show had put in place, including antiviral mist and a safety officer named Doreen.
At the end of the tour, Dan had the sweetest surprise in the form of his dad, Eugene Levy, in a glass box. “I didn’t know about the box at the time, no, I found out when I landed,” Eugene said with a resigned sigh. With an awkward laugh, Dan added, “Well I’d offer to help but we’re live on TV.” You can catch the reunion in the video above.
