Little did I know that while strolling through NYC on a late summer night back in 2009 with my roommate (Jamie Lee) and her friend that her friend was the John Mulaney. I knew he worked at SNL but I had no idea the extent of his funniness. After seeing one of his stand-up shows I left crying (and almost peeing my pants, but that’s a whole other story). He’s the guy behind Bill Hader’s hilarious character, Stefon, and has just secured a deal with Comedy Central for his own stand-up special.
As for Mike O’Brien, he’s the hilarious SNL writer and guy behind 7 Minutes in Heaven (see post #87), the web series based out of a closet at Rock Center. He’s brought on everyone from Amy Poehler to Patricia Clarkson and yep, you guess it, he’s sucked face with most of them.
