Hey there, folks! Big news from the Saturday Night Live stage – Ayo Edebiri made her hosting debut, and it was a moment filled with pure emotion. The NBC late-night sketch show got a touch of heartfelt excitement as Ayo took the stage. With a twinkle in her eye and a quiver in her voice, Ayo expressed, “I’m so excited to be here. SNL means the world to me. This is truly a dream come true.” As she fought back tears, she continued, “I was born and raised in Boston, making me the first Black woman to ever admit that. Three days into February, and I’m already making Black history.” Opening up about her roots, Ayo shared that she was raised in Boston by an immigrant family, proudly claiming her African and Caribbean heritage. With a humorous touch, she added, “So, you know what that means… I’m in therapy.” Reflecting on her journey to the SNL stage, Ayo shared how she had always wanted to be a part of the show. Recalling the time when she sent in a packet of ideas, she humorously reminisced about a failed attempt at a sketch called “White Jeopardy,” where it turned out to be just white people playing Jeopardy. Ayo also spilled the beans on another idea involving a character with a catchphrase, “Hop on to it now.” Picture this – Ayo delivering the line like Keenan Thompson and the Queen of England with a British accent. But alas, it didn’t make the cut, and she jokingly asked for the whole packet to be burned. Wrapping up her heartfelt monologue, Ayo expressed genuine excitement for the night ahead. “I came up in the New York comedy scene with some of my best friends, who I am so blessed to be working with here tonight, and it truly feels like a homecoming.
