We compare 2 previous cut sketches that made it to air this week! Who was cut from the Chuck. E Cheese sketch? What made Kate McKinnon break during update? All this and more!
This podcast has been a welcome variety between other podcasts and listening to music. The hosts are lighthearted and great SNL fans. Also this is a must-listen podcast if you are considering doing standby line.
Their take on cut sketches makes it so easy to visualize that when some make it to air I think I’ve already seen them 🤣 great work Jill and Amanda, and your supporting crew!
I was lucky enough to go to an episode of SNL a decade ago(Timberlake/Lady Gaga) and would of have killed to know what happened in dress. Now after I watch it every week I get to find out all the different things thanks to these great ladies who camp out every week.
Great behind the scenes info
I love knowing behind the scenes anecdotes and the show operates. This definitely sets it apart from other SNL podcast I listen to. But the two hosts can get into disagreements which can get a little grating. 😆
