Video: SNL Weekend Update host Michael Che & Colin Jost talk friendship & Comedy

Saturday Night Lives’ “Weekend Update” anchors Colin Jost & Michael Che chatted recently on a bunch of topics including friendship & comedy

The two started co-anchoring in 2014, but were stand-up buddies before they became work colleagues. There’s a genuine friendship (see video) — that’s the reason for their chemistry on the show.

I think (Lorne Michaels) kind of saw something and trusted us to figure that out a little bit,” Che said. “I feel like he had some patience which was nice to let us find it a little bit.”

There’s a lot of people who make you laugh who are comedians,” Jost added. “But there’s not that many that you necessarily want to hang out with regularly.”

Talking Writing Comedy – under a President Trump’s reign Che offered: “I think when you have as wide of a base as we have for our show, it’s impossible to please everybody, so you kind of just have to trust your instinct and know if it’s making us laugh, there’s something in there

Jost added – people get “depressed if you just watch regular news. I think at least if you’re watching something that has comedy with it … you at least feel like you have some release to it;  it’s not just bad news or sad news.”

Videos: Comedians talk comedy, inspiration, writing & what makes people laugh

Comedian Tom Papa‘s crowds would laugh, but it finally came together when he got a few words from his hero Jerry Seinfeld: “He came up and after seeing me several times complimented me and said I was really funny,Papa said.

I just learned how to be a comedian from him … When you’re starting out, you’re not sure what you’re doing. You think you’re funny, and you’re making audiences laugh, but you don’t know if it’s going to go anywhere. There’s a lot of uneasiness and fear, and for him to come up and validate my stand-up, it was just huge.”

Fast-forward 10-Years & he’s still got laughs going strong (see clip):

Here comedian Bill Burr talks about his writing process saying he starts by taking a single idea on stage –

Burr will then riff on stage, as if he’s  telling a story to friends and tightens up the jokes over time. He also says how opening for Dave Attell years ago taught him a writing trick he still uses today.

And finally Comedian Jay Nog‘s “NO JOKE” web-docu asks working comedians “what makes people laugh”

What makes you laugh? Where do you get inspiration?

Video: Comedian Jordan Peele says Horror & Comedy have lots in common

The best comedy and horror feel like they take place in reality,” says Comedian Jordan Peele taking up his horror movie “Get Out ” directorial debut. “You have a rule or two you are bending or heightening, but the world around it is real. I felt like everything I learned in comedy I could apply to this movie.”

When asked what keeps horror from becoming comedy Peele replies, “the second you have people doing something you know they wouldn’t do, you lose the audience. With “Get Out,” what needed to be believable was the protagonist’s intentions. Why he’s there. I followed the “Rosemary’s Baby”-“Stepford Wives” model of inching into this crazy situation and alongside, justifying how the character is rationalizing staying.”

Peele started writing “Get Out” about three years ago and  when asked about writing a film dealing with race he says: “We can discuss race all day long, but if you see a movie that successfully puts yourself in the shoes of somebody different than yourself, you see the world differently, so I think the power of story is greater than the power of conversation in a way.”
