This evening's How to Kick People features, to our great pleasure, four writers from Saturday Night Live, each reading original pieces. SNL is on break for the summer, and we got lucky enough to snag some free time from these writers before they go back to their Dickensian 19-hour working days, trying to please the fickle comic tastes of guest hosts like Felicity Huffman and John Elway.
I usually don't link to press notices for the show, but I have to make an exception. Check out the write-up in The NY Observer, notable for its almost unilateral nastiness. I think it's such a weird tactic, to sift through the hundreds of press releases they receive each week, and then pick out a choice few to recommend/shit all over. Nonetheless, we know they tease us out of love.
