Paul Rudd Joined by Tom Hanks and Tina Fey on SNL as Show Makes Changes Due to COVID-19 Concerns – BizNewsPost

He then introduced Fey, who added that this wasn’t the smallest crowd she’d ever performed to because she’d once “done improv in a Macy’s.” 

When Hanks added that he was the one who started the 5-Timers Club on the show, Fey cheekily replied, “Oh, like you started COVID!” 

The duo then welcomed Rudd onto the stage. Although he appeared happy, the actor stated that he was “extremely disappointed” by the turn of events, adding that there was “a whole show planned” that ultimately didn’t come to fruition. 

In an attempt to make his spirits bright, Hanks showed Rudd the “very special message” that Steve Martin had sent to congratulate him on his new title. However, the hilariously poorly dubbed video appeared to congratulate Hanks instead of Rudd. It also featured an appearance by Martin Short, who revealed he had only hosted the show three times before Martin shoved him off camera. 

Outside of the show opening, Fey also reprised her role on Weekend Update, filling in for Colin Jost who was not present and cracking jokes about current events opposite current anchor Michael Che

Although she did not perform on the night, Charli XCX did make an appearance in one of the show’s pre-recorded sketches as a macaw named T.J. Rocks

The segment was a parody of the 2000 single “The Christmas Shoes” by Christian group NewSong and featured Rudd and Kyle Mooney singing about a young boy attempting to purchase socks for his mom for Christmas after a hard year and the loss of their bird, who they later discover has joined a rock band.
