Kieran Culkin Finally Gets The ‘SNL’ Lift He Longed For 30 Years Ago

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 ended.

Little Kieran was “obviously jealous,” Culkin revealed after showing a clip of the scene. ‘My brother is there, he has his arms up, victorious. And I’m there, down on the ground, like, ‘And 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 hopes that someone … will pick me up again at the end of the show,” Culkin said. “And two, because I’ve waited 30 years to be on this podium again.”

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 show when they were boys.

var _fbPartnerID = null; if (_fbPartnerID !== null) { fbq('init', _fbPartnerID + ''); fbq('track', "PageView"); }

(function () { 'use strict'; document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', function () { document.body.addEventListener('click', function(event) { fbq('track', "Click"); }); }); })(); .
