March 2 (UPI) -- "Big Bang Theory" actor Jim Parsons joked that he's not the nerdy, genius comic-book loving Sheldon Cooper character that everyone seems to think he is.

During his first turn as the host of "Saturday Night Live," Parsons treated the audience to a little ditty during his opening monologue that encouraged viewers not to mistake him for the character he plays on television.

Take a look at his opening monologue and musical intro below:
