Actress and comedian Aidy Bryant has been a cast member on NBC’s iconic Saturday Night Live since 2012. She had a recurring role on IFC’s Comedy Bang Bang, and has recently guest starred on Girls, Broad City, Documentary Now! and Horace and Pete.
Over the festive break, Talkhouse Film is revisiting some of its most read (or listened to) pieces of the year, including this one. Happy holidays! – N.D.
On this episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast, two of the funniest people around – Saturday Night Live‘s Aidy Bryant and Inside Amy Schumer‘s head writer, Jessi Klein – meet for the first time. Talking on the day Klein’s new book, You’ll Grow Out of It, is published, the two have a hilarious conversation about the very specific discomfort of SNL writing nights, Emmy awkwardness, casting nightmares, their SNL host crushes (which leads to a great story about Drake), the celebrity Jessi recently drunk-dialed, hot guys, bras and breasts, and a whole bunch more.
