The SpaceX CEO also took to social media to get some feedback on his ‘skit ideas’, including ‘Baby Shark & Shark Tank merge to form Baby Shark Tank’ and ‘Irony Man – defeats villains using the power of irony’.
Keegan-Michael Key will host the show next week with performances from Olivia Rodrigo, while season 46 of SNL will conclude with help from Anya Taylor-Joy and Lil Nas X.
