Behind the Scenes of SNL's Weekend Update

Colin Patrick

Saturday Night Live fanatics have had plenty of gossip to discuss lately - with Will Forte and Jenny Slate leaving the cast, several new members joining the fray, and now the news that Amy Poehler will be hosting the 36th season premier episode on September 25.

If that’s not enough, Gawker has a fantastic interview with Doug Abeles – a writer and producer on the late night comedy mainstay for the last 10 years. Abeles provides some advice to aspiring comedy writers as well as behind the scenes insight on how the Weekend Update segment comes together.
