Taylor Swift thought Travis Kelce was ‘funny’ before they met for the first time after she watched him on Saturday Night Live

 

 

Taylor Swift thought Travis Kelce was hilarious before meeting him for the first time.

His sense of humor caught her attention before the 34-year-old singer went on to reach out to him and kick off their romance, according to Saturday Night Live star Ben Marshall.

Before meeting him, the superstar — who took barefaced photos with a lucky family in Sydney — said that she thought he was ‘funny’, he recalled on an episode of Mike Birbiglia’s Working It Out podcast released on Monday.

‘We worked with both Taylor and Travis Kelce before they got together,’ he said, before joking that he and his comedy group Please Don’t Destroy are ‘a little bit’ responsible for getting them together.

He explained that he and his group had worked with Kelce last year when the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, 34, made his hosting debut on the sketch comedy show in March 2023.

It’s a love story! Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce sing and share kiss

 

Marshall said that after his episode aired, Swift shared some of her initial thoughts about Kelce with the comedy group.

‘She kinda told us that she watched his SNL episode and saw him in our video and was like, “Oh, this guy seems funny”,’ he recalled.

‘So, like, a little bit [we] brought them together,’ he added.

The 14-time Grammy then famously went on to message Kelce for the first time when she learned that he previously tried and failed to give her his number on a friendship bracelet.

The 28-year-old comedian then admitted on the podcast that he did not tell the story before on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon because he was worried about the reaction of Swift’s loyal and devout fanbase.

He explained that the group was concerned if the relationship did not end up working out, they would be held responsible for Swift’s heartache.

‘I was thinking about like maybe [sharing that anecdote] on Fallon, and then we were like, “I think that if then they ever break up, we will be pinned for causing this disaster”,’ he explained.

‘It’s just a very precarious situation,’ he said. ‘Because people have such strong feelings.’

Marshall and his comedy group Please Don't Destroy worked with the Midnights hitmaker over two years ago in November 2021 when she joined then-cast member Pete Davidson for a musical sketch for Three Sad Virgins
