    Little seth meyers. A small man. Small in wit, small in influence and small in stature. Oh, and obviously bitter about the small thing.

    Seth is a disingenuous prick. He is full of himself, typical douchbag.

    Read bossypants . Yes it was more sexist before Tina and Paula and Amy fucking tore the roof off that shit. Don't get mad at seth for being honest. And he didn't even dismiss it. He just said " not when I was there but it was a different and better time with Tina Fey as head writer" .

    I don't know the details of Julia's experience at SNL, but I can think of 2 men there whom she did like. One was Larry David, and the other was Brad Hall.
    Like Julia, Larry was miserable there, but apparently for different reasons. Larry would later play a crucial role in Julia landing one of the most celebrated & successful roles ever.
    The other fellow was Brad Hall. Brad, Julia, and Gary Kroger were colleagues in a college comedy troupe, and SNL recruited them as a package. Brad has been Julia's husband for decades now. They have 2 sons. Julia wasn't always a writer, but more recently, she & Brad have collaborated on one or more scripts.

    • RaymondHng
      RaymondHng Month ago

      @Kathy TOEFL Teacher Frankly, I have not heard about her revelations despite my checking the headlines everyday. The websites I check everyday are filled with hard news, not entertainment news. Meyers is a comedy writer and runs a comedy talk show. That does not make him a newscaster. He is not an investigative journalist. He is not a news anchorman. He cannot be expected to have any intimate knowledge of the work environment or interactions between cast members ten years before he started working there no more than I have any knowledge of the work environment at a company ten years before I start working there. Furthermore, _Saturday Night Live_ executive producer Lorne Michaels is also executive producer of _Late Night with Seth Meyers_ . He is not going to bite the hand that feeds him.

      Well, part of that was who was running the show. Ebersol was not the right person to steward the program. His eye for young talent wasn’t the best. He had to rely on veterans such as Crystal, Short, and Guest just to keep the show afloat. The show was a mess at the time. Ebersol could be partly to blame for fostering that environment.

    Wow Julia had the misfortune of appearing during some of the worst writing SNL ever had. It became famous for basically Joe Piscopo and Eddie Murphy - and no one remembered anyone else until years later. Not that the other cast members weren't funny - but none of their skits were funny.

    He's right; even being unaware of the statement, it's very true that season by season, the environment can be drastically different. I imagine that joining the cast would probably feel like winning the lottery, but it takes a lot of effort & keeps you on your toes -- that certainly has the ability to bring out the worst in someone's personality. These days, the SNL cast appears to have built better relationships.

    SNL in the 70s and 80s was extremely sexist. It was a not so secret secret. Lots of the women have said it was a hostile work place. Jane Curtin, Julia, and some others have said it.

    Julia was a kid who had not developed her talent yet, and was not very funny at all, and really should have been fired sooner. Now of course she finds it convenient to blame her failure to catch on at the time, on some old boys network. She does not mention that the year before she was hired, the show was run by a woman and it failed so horribly that the show was almost cancelled.

    • ArtemisScribe
      ArtemisScribe Month ago +1

      @NYsun flower Yeah, everything I've seen said about him suggests he was a deeply insecure man which is ridiculous considering how talented he was in his own right. He could easily have just been a nice person and still have had the fame and respect he got. He may have even gotten more work done using some of the energy he wasted on trying to get people fired.

    • NYsun flower
      NYsun flower Month ago

      @ArtemisScribe apparently Belushi finally conceded that Radner was pretty funny. She was onen of the funniest people who ever lived. According to Curtain he was always trying to get the women fired. I can't imagine what his reaction to Tina Fey and Amy Pohler would be. Or Kate McKinnon. Or Leslie Jones.

    • ArtemisScribe
      ArtemisScribe Month ago

      @NYsun flower it baffles me how anyone in SNL could say women aren't funny when Gilda Radner was the first person ever cast in the whole show and possibly one of the funniest people ever to have lived. How anyone could have the audacity to look her in the eye and say the words "chicks aren't funny" just beggars belief.

    • NYsun flower
      NYsun flower Month ago +1

      She's not the first woman to say snl was a sexist boys club. The women in the original cast were all treated badly. They were constantly told that chicks aren't funny. That all changed when Tina Fey became head writer. Even Belushi would have to admit he was wrong. Chicks are indeed funny

    I’m surprised Seth missed the mark on that first question. Having “strong” female cast members doesn’t mean they or other workers at SNL didn’t experience objectification, harassment, or assault. If you’re not aware of it happening, say that. Don’t allude to it never happening because you were there during a _better era_ .

      Why do you assume that Seth would be incapable of calling out injustice if he saw it? If a person has sufficient empathy, (s)he can sense unfair treatment even if it's being directed at someone else. It would be unfairly prejudiced to suggest that someone is incapable of sensing these kinds of problems just because (s)he doesn't happen to belong to the group who is being mistreated.

    That Seth Meyers sure is a cuck. Instead of hitting her hard, just as he would against any man; he chooses to blindly agree with her. and, in the end result: Shiitlib women are accusing shiitlib men of being "seeexist", and he becomes a "Yes Man". It's predictable.
