Nate Talk About Stephen

One of the episodes of Saturday Night Live (SNL) is a special Halloween edition with stand-up comedian Nate as the host and the Foo Fighters as the musical guests.

On Halloween episodes, SNL often features sketches that mix humor with spooky or scary themes. 

Nate made his debut on SNL, and he started by joking about hotels, especially the futuristic and strange things you find in them, like half-full showers and wet floors. 

He also talked about how going to a fair these days is quite a hassle. 

Then, he shared stories about his dad, a magician, and how they used to watch his dad’s magic show at the fair in the 80s

This was a time before the internet, so those things were interesting. 

Nate mentioned something unusual, like donkeys jumping off high dives into pools, which he found strange. 

He also commented that it’s hard to hold people's attention these days, even when his dad was doing magic tricks. 


His son Nate's age is 42 years as of 2023.

Nate, who debuted as a host in Saturday Night Live (SNL), shared some funny stories during his routine. 

He talked about his parents discussing their health issues, including his deaf great aunt, who was diagnosed when she was very young, and doctors didn't know what to do. 

He also told a humorous story about his mother accidentally going to the wrong house to pick up their daughter, which led to a funny mix-up.

Nate then mentioned his health issues, where he’s addicted to a nasal spray called Afrin.
