Travis Kelce's SNL Bloopers Will Make You Need to Watch His Sketches Again

The Kansas City Chiefs tight end's sense of humor is on display in this blooper reel from Please Don't Destroy's "Self Defense" digital short—which reminds us of his standout Season 48 episode.

By Samantha Vincenty

Travis Kelce is a multitalented man. As the tight tend for the Kansas City Chiefs, he helped his team defeat the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2023 Super Bowl LVII (facing off against his older brother, Eagles center Jason Kelce). Kelce also happens to be a natural performer off the field, and he showcased his talent for comedy as March 4 Host of Saturday Night Live's Emmy-nominated Season 48

How to Watch

Watch Saturday Night Live Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.  

Being a part of any live SNL episode is hard work, but it's clear from watching Kelce in this blooper reel that he had an amazing time on the show. The digital short that he starred in with comedy trio Please Don't Destroy, "Self Defense," required some demanding stunts from both Kelce and Please Don't Destroy's Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy.

For Kelce, it also posed the formidable challenge of keeping a straight face as he commanded Herlihy to punch an older white-haired woman in the face (they both dissolved into giggles instead).

Hosting SNL was a longtime dream for the football star: His manager, Aaron Eanes, told Vanity Fair it “was the only thing he ever said he wanted to do"—aside from winning two Super Bowls, presumably. Watch the "Self Defense" bloopers, and check out more sketches from Travis Kelce's Saturday Night Live episode, below.

Kelce seemed to be having the time of his life playing the weirdo you never expected to meet at the American Girl Cafe.

"Straight Male Friend"

Straight Male Friend

Bowen Yang and Travis Kelce's fake ad touts the rewards of a "low effort, low stakes relationship" with a straight male friend (wing nights! video game sessions!), where the only drama comes from when you tell them, "I bet I'm faster than you."
