Joshua Michael Tillman, 35, aka Father John Misty surpassed expectations with his spellbinding performance on Saturday Night Live. The singer made his highly anticipated appearance on March 4, and treated the audience to two of his new singles from his forthcoming album Pure Comedy. Even though it was his first time as the musical guest on the 8H stage, he commanded the crowd like a total pro while belting out the lyrics to “Total Entertainment Forever,” and “Pure Comedy.” Wearing a black coat and dark pants, he looked suave for the special occasion.
