The 37-year-old Schitt’s Creek actor and co-creator hosted the sketch show on Saturday (February 6).
During his opening monologue, Dan decided to show off the coronavirus safety protocols the show has put in place to keep the cast, crew, and audience members safe.
Dan left the stage to chat with an audience member, when safety guru Dorene (aka Aidy Bryant) came out to make sure Dan was six-feet away from the fan.
“When you wanna get chummy just pout a noodle in your tummy,” Dorene said while holding up a pool noodle between Dan and the audience member to measure the distance.
Dan then went to give a tour of Studio 8H, which includes anti-viral mist, socially-distanced dressing rooms, and staff members in hazmat suits.
Dan then bumped into his dad Eugene Levy, who was locked in a box, since he took a flight from Los Angeles to New York City to watch his son host the show.
“I flew in to wish you luck tonight but because I traveled, I’m in this isolation box,” the 74-year-old actor said.
Eugene then asked a staff member to move the box so he could get a better view of his son on stage.
Before the episode, Dan‘s mom (and Eugene‘s wife) sent out a message to all of Dan‘s childhood bullies.
