Bringing the laughs to the long-running NBC show, Joseph Gordon-Levitt kicked off his hosting efforts with a "Magic Mike" inspired striptease on yesterday's (September 22) episode of "Saturday Night Live".

After a 'Live with Kelly and Michael Cold Open' to kick things off, the 31-year-old actor took the Studio 8H stage for his monologue while asking audience members, “You know what my favorite part of Magic Mike was?”

“This part!" Levitt proclaimed while proceeding to ditch his duds with the sounds of “It’s Raining Men" playing in the background.

During the course of the show, a favorite skit saw Levitt play the son of the 'Most Interesting Man in the World' while filming a commercial for Tres Equis.

“It’s one Equis more than my dad’s beer, because he was never there for me,” Joseph told of his product. “Two parts Dos Equis, one part none of your business. Keep banging, my friends."

Also well received was the 'Weekend Update' which saw Kate McKinnon as First Lady hopeful Ann Romney and Jay Pharoah as ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith.

Capping it all off, the Gordon-Levitt hosted installment of "Saturday Night Live" welcomed musical guest Mumford & Sons, who treated viewers to renditions of "Below My Feet" and "I Will Wait" during the course of the episode.
