Why was this Dayton native on the Tonight Show?

Not only does he write, he acts as well.

Dayton native Stephen Levinson, a writer for the Tonight Show, appeared in a skit during Thursday’s show.


He was one of several actors pretending to be members of the American Badminton Team.

Levinson, who wears glasses in the skit, has a solo part.

Levinson and his younger brother, Joel, released the comedy album “2776” in 2014. The album includes a cast of well-known artists, including Ashanti, Neko Case, Bobcat Goldthwait, Ira Glass and Dick Cavett.

In addition, the Levinsons were speakers at TEDxDatyon in 2014.
