She reminded the audience that she had actually been acting since she was little. His mother got him into the business by posting a video of Ortega on Facebook, “which someone explained to me is like TikTok but for racism instead of dancing.”

Ortega then shared a toothbrush commercial she shot as a child, and how the “invisible villains” she talked about in the commercial can be turned into a horror movie today, thanks to a chilling music and editing.

“I like horror movies. I don’t get scared very easily,” Ortega said. “Part of the reason [she wanted to host] was facing my biggest fear – happy, outgoing people who are always trying to perform.

It was then that she mentioned that the former SNL comedian Fred Armisen, who plays Uncle Fester on Wednesday, was in the crowd. Ortega told her he was one of the reasons she started watching SNLespecially because of his sketch on The Californians.
