Big news in the comedy world: Kristin Wiig and Bill Hader, two of my favorite funny people from SNL are reuniting, this time on the big screen. Wiig and Hader will team up to star in the dark comedy The Skeleton Twins, set for release in 2013. The story follows the estranged twins after each manages to narrowly defy death on the same day, adding a supernatural twist to the comedy. As a result, they come together to figure out what has gone wrong with their ... Read More

In what we can only guess is an attempt to put together the most effing amazing awards show ever, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are set to co-host the 70th Annual Golden Globes. These funny ladies only get funnier when they’re together. Remember Tina photo-bombing Amy at the Globes last year? Or the 2011 Emmys? Or Baby Mama? Or SNL? The list of times the two have been brilliantly paired together goes on and on.
The Golden Globes will air on January 13, ... Read More

On Monday, NBC announced that three new comics will star in its upcoming 2012-2013 season of Saturday Night Live. All of them are Chicago based, and two of them are ladies. Though we're still bummed over the show's loss of Kristen Wiig, we're ready to open our hearts to these new comedic players.
New stars Aidy Bryant, Tim Robinson, and Cecily Strong are all affiliated with Second City, the famous troupe that has launched the careers of comedy ... Read More

Brace yourself: Kristin Wiig graduated from SNL this weekend. We’re providing the video in case you missed it, and you provide yourself with some tissues. Go. Now. As we were forewarned, it appears she is moving on to either paint and eat bread in Paris, or be a nun. Since she doesn’t like to have goals, she is probably just leaving this open. But for us devoted fans, we just hope she continues to grace the boob tube and the silver screen with her fab, ... Read More

So rumors are aflutter that this will be Kristen Wiig's last season of SNL, as her contract is up this year. She has yet to confirm or deny this, but one can surmise that if she doesn't leave now, her departure remains imminent. And while I will be completely devastated when she does leave, listening to her Monday WNYC interview on "Here's the Thing with Alec Baldwin" had me in such a Surprise Party Sue state.
In case you didn't know -- which you may not, ... Read More
This weekend’s episode of SNL was perhaps the best of all season, with a lineup that seemed ripped from the pages of BUST (plus plenty of killer cameos…and one by Bill O'Reilly?) and a distinctly female energy (no doubt stemming from host Maya Rudolph’s presence) that felt like a breath of fresh air—or a gasp for fresh air after laughing so hard at Rudolph and Kristen Wiig’s frozen-chicken-fondling, golf-cart-driving, ...

The folks over at Saturday Night Live must really love BUST Magazine! The host of this weekend's comedy sketch show is none other than yours truly. Sort of. Although the hilarious staff here is not actually hosting SNL, our current cover lady Maya Rudolph is, and the musical guest is (drum roll please) Sleigh Bells! Not only did Sleigh Bells land a spot as our featured review in the Feb/March issue, we've got a brand-spankin' new interview with ... Read More

So maybe we did just post about Quirkyalone Day, but, much like Zooey D. (I didn’t used to think she possessed a funny bone in her body, but now I take it back), we BUST girls are capable of not taking ourselves too seriously. Which is why I present you with an SNL clip from this past Saturday, one which highlights some of the essential tenets of quirkiness. Abby Elliott plays Zooey Deschanel, the real Zooey portrays an electric-blanket wearing, ... Read More

If you're old enough to remember the SNL skit "Delicious Dish," I've got some exciting news for you: Ben & Jerry's is releasing a new flavor, called "Shweddy Balls", based on the sketch with Alec Baldwin.What's the ice cream made of? In this imagining of the taste of Alec Baldwin's Shweddy Balls, it features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream with fudge-covered rum and milk chocoloate malt balls. I can't wait to get my mouth around those ... Read More
What’s that you say? You need something to cheer you up? Thursday is a bore because it’s almost Friday but not quite Friday and you’re having a hard time staying awake enough to even make it to Friday? Think your life is rough? Well think again.This is Marcel. Marcel is a shell. Marcel wears shoes and seems somewhat gender-ambiguous. Marcel ate some cheese once, but it was probably a bad idea. Marcel has to walk on phones to talk on them. Marcel ... Read More
