editor’s note: A couple weeks ago, some friends and I camped out for standby tickets for Saturday Night Live. NYU film student, Colin Marchon, was also in line, and he made this film about the experience. If you watch it, you’ll be able to spot me pretty easily.

They discuss their respective entrées into comedy, their favourite sketches/hosts from their time at SNL and Melissa McCarthy. The ladies were so kind and generous with their answers, so it’s worth a read, y’all! Check it!
