31 Day SNL Challenge: Favorite Writer
For this category, I strictly limited to the full-fledged writers on Saturday Night Live. While all cast members also write sketches, I figured this was the time for the behind-the-scenes crew to shine. And while there was no shortage of iconic writers to choose from (Pell, Higgins, Taccone, Smigel, Downey), I had to pick the man you see above these words. John. Mulaney. Sketches are not typically accredited to anyone in particular, but it is widely known that Mulaney created Stefon with Bill Hader and he would always change the cue cards at the last second to make Bill break. That is an amazing to do. Mulaney's sense of humor is so eccentric and endearing and I love it so much. Additionally, Mulaney received an Emmy nomination for the song "Threeway" in the Justin Timberlake/Lady Gaga episode from 2011. He's a weird man, but he's my personal favorite.
