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 9 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 anti-viral mist and a safety officer named Doreen.
At the end of the tour, Dan had the sweetest surprise in the form of dad Eugene Levy in a glass box. “I didn’t know about the box at the time, no, I found out when I landed,” said Eugene with a resigned sigh. “Well I’d offer to help but we’re live on TV,” Dan added with an awkward laugh. You can catch the reunion in the video above.
