The first big surprise came when MC Darrell Hammond announced the host: Tom Hanks.

It has been exactly one month since Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson announced that they had tested positive for COVID-19. Dressed in a costume from his kitchen, the Oscar-winning actor looked better than ever and more than ready to make fun of him.

“Hey, it’s nice to be here, but it’s also very weird to be here to host Saturday Night Live from home, “said Hanks. “It’s a strange time to try to be funny, but trying to be funny is SNL »That’s it, so we thought, damn it, let’s try! “
