I was there Sunday night - it was awesome! The "friends" included: Kenan Thompson, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer, Seth Meyers, Jenny [Slate], and Gabe [Liedman]...
...Colin Jost, John [Mulaney]...
... Hannibal (I can't remember his last name but he's a writer), Brian Tucker, Fred Armisen, and I think that was it...
They did I'm on a Boat and Iran (So far away) with Fred in full Mahmoud garb and Kenan doing Adam Levine's part.
The stand-up was great and Jorm appeared in a snuggie!
Joanna Newsom sat in front of me...
I have pics with Fred Armisen and his fiancee Elizabeth Moss, with Jason Siegel...
...with Jenny, with John, with Kenan and one with Kiv!! Andy was swamped.
Notes from TAE (photos not from event):
Jenny Slate is new this year. She played Andy's girlfriend on "On the Ground."
Gabe Liedman is her comedy partner. He's only currently known for doing stand-up and comedy shows.
Colin Jost is a writer who started writing for SNL the same year that Andy Samberg started on SNL (05-06 season). So this is Colin's 5th year writing for SNL. This year he started being a Writing Supervisor for SNL.
Hannibal Buress is a new writer on SNL (as of this year, I think). He played an airplane passenger in the Megan Fox and Kristen Wiig airline stewardess skit in the first episode of this 09-10 season.
John Mulaney is another writer on SNL. This is his 2nd year as a writer and first year as a Writing Supervisor. He's made a few appearances as an extra on the show.
Brian H. Tucker is another writer on SNL. He also started in the 05-06 season. Before SNL, he was a writer on the Chris Rock Show, Mad TV, and Chapelle's Show. He's been on SNL in minor roles. He played Roy in Andy Samberg's Roy Rules, and this year he was the hot dog stand guy in "On the Ground." He also did "Tucker's Song," which is on The Lonely Island's YouTube channel where he sings about *ing The Lonely Island. Judging from Roy Rules and Tucker's Song, he probably collaborated with the Lonely Island dudes on Sloths and Giraffes.
The rest you all know. =^)
By the way, Kristen H was also there, so stay tuned!
