I wrote this. Sasheer punched it up and made it funnier. We wrote it together. We shot it last month with Todd Bieber, Lauren Adams, Shalyah Evans, John Trowbridge, and George Kareman. For a silly reason it was removed from youtube… but now its back! Everyone in this is super fucking funny in it, and it makes me smile that UCB Comedy was able to shoot edit and release this so fast.

you’re going to blush really hard when you watch this thing that i wrote for our february show. love watching langan, kelly, lisa, and jon in this.
I fucking love this. I hope Langan was channeling her inner Nicole Byer.
Amazing. This is the best.
HAHAHA “that’s not nice. come one.” Paparazzi people can eat trash and become trash and then blow away like trash :)
Live From New York, It’s Our New Girl Crushes: the Ladies of SNL!
Megan Angelo - Glamour Magazine
Not watching Saturday Night Live these days? Start, start, start—because there’s a new lineup of women killing it week after week. Glamour met all five of these brilliant comedians (Vanessa Bayer, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Nasim Pedrad, and Cecily Strong) on the set of our shoot for our April issue.
GLAMOUR: You’re the latest in a long line of amazing women on SNL. Who inspired you to want to be on the show?
VANESSA: I loved watching Julia Sweeney do Pat, and Melanie Hutsell do Tori Spelling, when I was little. And Tina [Fey] and Amy [Poehler], of course.
CECILY: I remember watching all the Gilda Radner specials growing up.
KATE: Molly Shannon, Cheri Oteri, Ana Gasteyer…I had T-shirts of all their characters. I taped the sketches every week and transcribed them the next morning. It was unhealthy.
GLAMOUR: What would you say are the craziest things that have happened to you so far on the show?
AIDY: On my way to audition, I got caught in a rainstorm. When I walked in, I was soaked like a dog, I looked insane, and I was about to cry. Those hair and makeup ladies transformed me—by the time I auditioned, I felt so confident. I’m so grateful to them for that.
NASIM: They are amazing. Going from a child to a Kardashian, I go from barely anything to a million eyelashes in 30 seconds. I just stand there frozen while they attack me.
GLAMOUR: What’s the deal behind the famous end-of-show farewells? Have you ever really gotten in there to get a hug from a star you love?
CECILY: I forced Alec Baldwin to hug me. I was like, “You have to do this.” He certainly wasn’t initiating.
For more from the April issue of Glamour, pick it up on newsstands March 12 or download the digital issue on your tablet.
Happy International Women’s Day to Cecily, Kate, Nasim, Aidy & Vanessa! :)
(sung to the tune of a song an insane person would sing)
There hasn’t been a black woman on SNL for 20 years
And yet I still watch it every week
and am loving the “Bobby and Cecily get fired” sketches
because I am a coward and an idiot
gonna kill myself
Maybe no black ladies, but I think this is a thumbs up for diversity overall? They are different sizes, we have a lesbian there, and there are two wonderful ladies of color (Cecily Strong is my #1).
Sidenote, but somewhat related: why is Amy Poehler the only woman from the last 15 years to get a “Best Of” compilation? And truth be told, Amy’s isn’t even that good! I mean, it’s great because she is great in everything, but it has NO Kaitlin in it! Which is insane, to me! Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Tina Fey, Kristen Wiig, none of them have “Best Ofs”!
Do they not make “Best Of” comps anymore? Is my complaining dated?
According to Wikipedia, the last three best of were: SNL: The Best of 2009/2010, SNL: The Best of Will Ferrell, Volume 3, and SNL: The Best of Amy Poehler.
Also: fuck yeah awesome ladies on SNL.
I really love this.
