Episode 51: Kristen Bartlett
Kristen Bartlett (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, SNL) lost her husband's father and then her father within a 4 month period while pursuing her dream of working in comedy. After multiple rejections from UCB sketch teams, she decided to form her own team, and eventually turn her grief into a celebrated sketch show, The Dead Dad's Club. We also dive deep into her time writing at SNL and how she dealt with going from a successful first season to being a mid-season casualty.
