On Dec. 12, New York native Timothée Chalamet delivered a charming monologue as first-time host of Saturday Night Live. After giving a sweet shoutout to his mom — who actually worked as a background actor on SNL during the days of Dana Carvey and Chris Farley — Chalamet sat down at a piano and began to reminisce about Christmas in NYC. “Ice skating on the Hudson; sledding down the side of the Chrysler building; leaving cookies for Santa in the bathroom at the Port Authority bus terminal,” he said with a smirk. “Nothing like eating Cheetos on the F train Christmas Eve. You eat a handful, then you hold the pole, then you lick your fingers. I miss that.”
Of course, it didn’t take long for Pete Davidson to join him with his own Staten Island memories. “We don’t leave Santa cookies and milk. We leave him Bud Light and a White Claw,” said Davidson with a grin. “OK, slightly different, but that’s still New York, right?” Chalamet questioned. You can watch a clip of the duo above.
