Brown shined from the moment he took the stage, where he jokingly struggled to fight back tears during his hilarious monologue.

“I actually have a reputation for being pretty sensitive,” Brown explained. “But what can I say? I’m an actor, and I wear my emotions on my sleeve.”

He only made it a few moments in before the feelings began to well up inside him about getting to host the show for the first time, and he had to psych himself up yelling, “Wooo! Get it together, Sterling Kathleen, it’s all good.”

For Sterling K. Brown’s first turn as host of Saturday Night Live, he boldly went where so many past guest stars have gone before: Trump’s cabinet.

With Sterling K. Brown hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time this week, a parody of NBC’s This Is Us seemed inevitable. But we did not know he would be playing Dr. Ben Carson.

“Millions of Americans have tuned in to the show that’s captivating a nation,” the announcer read, before revealing Brown as President Trump’s HUD secretary.

“Dr. Ben Carson, what’s wrong?” an aide asks him. “All of it. All of it is wrong,” he replies. Later, his wife laughs in his face when he tells her he runs the Department of Housing and Urban Development instead of something that has any relation to his career as a brain surgeon.
