Dan levy‘s Saturday Night Live hosting debut starts with him highlighting the coronavirus safety protocols. Dan Levy is an Emmy Award-winning actor and also the co-creator and director of Schitt’s Creek.
Dan Levy’s SNL started with his words-“Somewhere, my 13-year-old self has fainted in like a really needy, melodramatic way. And now in the past 12 months I have quite literally changed my life in so many ways, both good and not so good. The good: people finally started watching our show Schitt’s Creek.”
Dan Levy added by saying-” The good: I have been getting stopped on the street by all different kinds of people, which is new and fun and different. The not so good: those people are mainly screaming ‘Ew!’ at me, which was a line I wrote for the show that will now haunt me for the rest of my life. But in all seriousness, for all the good and the not so good, I have somehow found myself here on this iconic stage standing in front of all of you. And trust me when I say this, it has only been good here at SNL.”
Dan Levy also took the viewers for a tour to show the backstage and the studio. The tour showed all the viewers some socially distanced rooms, staff in hazmat suits, and an antiviral mist. A safety officer named Dorene was seen keeping everyone safe and managing the COVID-19 guidelines. She says while holding a pool noodle in her hand to measure the physical distance -“When you wanna get chummy, just put a noodle in your tummy.”
Dan Levy gets a surprise when he sees his father and Schitt’s Creek co-star Eugene Levy who was waiting for him around the corner. Eugene Levy spoke to his son through a plexiglass display by saying-“I flew in to wish you luck tonight but because I traveled, I’m in this isolation box.”
However, when Dan Levy returns to the stage, Eugene Levy requests the staff members to shift his box so that he can have a better view of the stage. Eugene Levy says-“Excuse me, can you turn me towards the stage so I could see the show?”
