I was really looking forward to chatting with Vanessa Bayer as I absolutely love her work on SNL. No matter what character she’s playing, she absolutely slays me. Vanessa was exactly what I’d hoped for — funny, genuine, and charming, especially when talking about eating onion rings and a bucket of shrimp in one of my favorite SNL sketches.
Vanessa is featured in the Judd Apatow/Amy Schumer movie “Trainwreck” this summer, and is also participating in the “Trainwreck Comedy Tour” with several other cast members, including Amy, Judd, Colin Quinn, Dave Attell and Mike Birbiglia. The tour hits the Harris Theatre in Chicago on June 18.Follow @bigwakeupcall
