The Latest

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned.

In my fantasy world, Gilda and I would have been best friends. In my fantasy world, Eddie Murphy would’ve been like, “I don’t really think white women are funny, but you’re really great.” I wish that I had met Phil Hartman. I think about that sometimes. He’s someone I would’ve really liked to have met and worked with, and, sadly, I didn’t get that chance. But certainly Gilda. They were such comedy giants for me; I can’t really imagine sharing the same air as them. It’s interesting: Whenever you parachute into SNL, the time that you parachute in, it has to work. I was extremely lucky to come at a time when women were dominating, when my friends were working there, and where I felt like I had some chops having worked at UCB…
A lot of the ways that the women of SNL keep in contact is that we have a text chain where we send pictures of our kids, and it was really cool to have Maya, Tina, Ana, Rachel, Molly, and me and everyone’s kids there. It just felt like the circle of life.

Even though my time in the beginning there was pretty painful, I’m proud of my association with [SNL]. I feel like I was in the trenches and then to go back was just a kind of personal triumph, a happy one, that’s hard to put into words. I think a lot of that is very gender-specific. I think women are better at getting along in a group, frankly. And there are a lot of really funny women in the cast, you know, with Kristen and Maya and Amy and Tina. I’m not suggesting that the men were hostile or aggressive or competitive with one another, but I think there was a culture of friendliness there and I cannot help but think it had sort of an osmosis effect, and I think it came from the ladies. I really do. Because if you think about the material that was popular at the time and successful, you know, characters that came back and stuff, they featured characters that would have a camaraderie between them that was funny, and you can tell it was born out of a friendly environment because the material had a friendliness to it. That’s actually when I met Amy Poehler for the first time and we immediately got along and she’s actually become a good friend of mine.

I felt that Seth was and is my equal and peer. We started together, so it was nice not to be the one who was starting. I knew we would instantly connect because in many ways I’m the sister he never had, and he’s the brother I always wanted. There’s such affection, and we share a very similar language, and Seth is so sharp and so incredibly smart. Just as with Tina, I basically felt at times like a car that was riding next to a giant talent truck and was just drafting on their wind.

In a very ridiculous way, I was thinking that I had control over when my baby was going to come… on Friday night he decided he wanted to start coming and he wanted to get there by Saturday, and so I texted Mike Shoemaker and Seth in the middle of the night and said, “I’m not going to make the show tomorrow.” From what I understand, it was really exciting because everyone had these fill-ins for my parts. Elisabeth Moss filled in for herself in a “Mad Men” sketch, and she met Fred Armisen that night, and a year later, on my son’s birthday, they were married. That was also the night where Seth had to do “Update” for the first time, and I held my newborn son in my arms as I watched Maya and Kenan sing a song to me and him. Seth tapped on the “Update” desk, which he does now pretty regularly out of a lovely habit, and I felt it was really one of those really incredibly moving moments where all these moments in my life were happening at the same time and I felt my heart crack open.
It was just love with a capital L all over there. Getting it, receiving it, feeling it, seeing this little person, my first son, and seeing the people I loved so much at my job. It felt very real to me and it is very real to me. I treasure the love and relationships that I have there and continue to have because of that job.

I am a romantic. I hope everyone has those experiences, whether it’s a date that lasted all night or a date that lasted five seconds at a train station, moments that are so personal and so special it was hard to explain to somebody else.”
