We are doing a video diary of my time at the SNL, which I believe in America they call SNL. And this is a wall. This designed I think to intimidate me.

I have been here I think for 90 minutes to two hours. And that is terrifying but really nice at the same time. Everybody is being lovely. I just went into the office of Lorne Michaels and that was a big, and the entire casts and lots of producers and writers from SNL sat on the floor. Grown adults. They are employed by a big multinational corporation which is amazing that they sat on the floor. And I got to sit on a chair, which was great. They all pitched different ideas I mean.–

This is the stage. And this is the audience. This is where my entire family will stay. This is all for them. All from the Ireland and Scotland, which is a narrow space. bye.

Hey there. I have just done the table read. Or as we call, the read through of 40 sketches or so. Yeah. It’s crazy. Absolutely crazy. My admiration for these people at Saturday Night Live is at a peak level most of the moment because they do this every weekend. This is insane. It is amazing. So no one want to be a part of it.

This is my fourth night on SNL. And this is us about to do the pre-record for one of the sketches. We’re in about the main streets of New York city, or Brooklyn, or I don’t really know the difference which I know is terrible. And it’s a really good sketch. I’m really excited. It’s going to be with a bunch of incredibly talented people and I’m little bit intimidated. But I’m looking forward to it. Fingers crossed you’ll like it upon transmission.
