Did Macaulay Culkin host SNL?

Macaulay hosted the show on November 23, 1991.

His brother Kieran appeared in three skits.

He hosted SNL before the premiere of his starring role in My Girl.

Macaulay’s father, Kit Culkin, an actor and stage manager requested that he do the show without cue cards. Kit believed cue cards affected his son’s performance.

Macaulay and the cast memorized their lines for that episode. That was the first and only time the sketch comedy show cast was asked to do this.


What’s different 30 years later?

On November 6, 20021, Macaulay’s brother Kieran’s dream to host an SNL episode became a reality.

He paid homage to his appearance at 9-years-old with his brother 30 years ago. He showed a clip of Macaulay hoisted on the shoulders of a cast member with his arms lifted like a champion.

Kieran joked he then asked then-cast member Kevin Nealon to also lift him up like his brother. He pokes fun at his expressions when he was lifted up.

He said he waited 30 years to be back on SNL’s stage to say, “we’ve got a great show for you tonight!”

He was joined by musical guest Ed Sheeran.
