A truly amazing interview with Lorne Michaels, executive producer of SNL.
While we’re all grieving the loss of Kristen, Andy, Abby and possibly Jason, look on the bright side: we get 3-4 new cast members! This means new faces, new impersonations and new sketches! Bring it on, season 38!
There was something crazy about that sketch from the beginning. It tickled a funny bone where Kristen got the giggles -– even in rehearsal. When we were coming out in the golf cart, I looked at her and I knew. I heard it, this laugh of hers that comes from the throat. It tripped some sort of wire in her where she couldn’t stop. Something about that voice … it’s a voice we do when we’re joking around with each other in life. It’s just a stupid, dumb voice, but it gets her every time.
