Darrell Hammond: Impressions Of Drugs, Dispair and Comedy

by The Comedy Nerds on October 31, 2011

With the upcoming release of Darrell Hammond’s autobiography, God, If You’re Not Up There, I’m F*cked: Tales of Stand-Up, Saturday Night Live, and Other Mind-Altering Mayhem” we discuss the psychological make-up that pushes comedians to do what they do, how one could possibly handle the pressure of a job like being on Saturday Night Live, with a less than stable personal life (and apparently for Darrell it was — Hoo boy you guys, it was rough), and the differences between an accurate impression, a funny impression, and a funny and accurate impression. It might seem like a minor distinction, but it can make all the difference in the world.
