Culkin appeared on “SNL” in 1991 at the age of 9 along with his big brother, “Home Alone” star Macaulay Culkin. But Mac was the one in the spotlight, and he was hoisted into the air by cast members as the show closed.
Little Kieran was “clearly jealous,” Culkin revealed after showing a clip of the scene. “My brother’s up there. He’s got his arms up, all victorious. And I’m down there on the ground, like, ‘What about me? I want uppies.’”
Forlorn Kieran turned to then-“SNL” cast member Kevin Nealon for a half-hearted lift.
“I wanted to show that clip for two reasons: One, in the hopes that someone … will pick me up again at the end of the show,” said Culkin. “And two, because I have waited 30 years to be back on this stage.”
He got his wish. And he loved it.
In another blast from the past, “Saturday Night Live” tweeted scenes of Mac and Kieran on the program when they were boys.
