Tim Meadow Shares his Experience Working with Travis Kelce: He Wants Travis Kelce to Host SNL Again

During an interview with PEOPLE at Samsung 837 in New York City earlier this week, when he was accompanied by fellow SNL veteran Molly Shannon, the actor and comedian, 63, confessed that he would want to see Kelce, 34, return to Studio 8H in the near future.

 

“He hosted once and did an excellent job. “He was very funny,” Meadows added. “I really like him. “I think he’s very funny.” “It’s like, those athletes, they come in, and you are surprised how good they can be,” the Mean Girls actress remarked. Kelce hosted SNL for the first time back in March 2023. At the time, he was joined by Kelsea Ballerini as the musical guest.

 

During his opening monologue, which featured numerous cutaways to his family — including older brother Jason Kelce and their parents, Donna and Ed Kelce — the Kansas City Chiefs tight end celebrated his 2023 Super Bowl win. During the show, Kelce took part in various sketches, including one where he played an odd customer at the American Girl Doll store’s café, and another where he portrayed SNL cast member Bowan Yang’s “straight male friend.”

 

Another memorable moment saw Kelce perform in a parody of Netflix’s Too Hot to Handle.
According to Meadows, Kelce contacted him before to his hosting position because he was planning to play a character in a comedy similar to Meadows’ classic SNL character, Leon Phelps, and needed assistance.

 

Meadows said he and the NFL player “touched base” on Instagram. “Because he was doing … a lady’s man impression on Live.” As for Shannon, 59, she couldn’t help but gush over the geographical connection shared between herself and Kelce. “Travis is a Cleveland guy. Like me, I’m from Cleveland,” she said. “I’m from Shaker Heights and … he’s from Cleveland Heights.”
