Bill Hader and Fred Armisen
Fred Armisen is a legendary member of Saturday Night Live, the combo of these two is full of laughter. These two has done a lot of segments together, some popular of them is, ‘The Californians’, ‘Gay Couple From Maine/New Jersey’, ‘The Royal Family’, and ‘Kissing Family.’
It all started back when Bill Hader first joins Saturday Night Live, Fred was on his way to the set, and he got a lift from a production assistant, and it was none other than Bill.
And when the time comes when Bill Hader officially joins the cast, the writers pair them at first and soon realize that they are perfect with each other.
They both look really funny standing next to each other. According to them, they spend like 24 hours with each other, more like 18 cause you know..bathrooms breaks.
Their chemistry is so weird that it made people wonder, are these guys really that off, or just do it intentionally. It seems that these are “as weird in real as they look on screen.”
When they went for an interview for their collaborated “Documentary Now”, the person who interviews them felt kind of awkward. Like the two doesn’t really talk much to each other, and it made him think that maybe they are not well with each other.
Well, long after it, he realized that they are talking but telepathically, like using some kind of alien language that only those two understand.
Bill Hader and Fred also told that they did write a sketch together, they said, ‘That was really cool. We would write sketches that never got on but we understood the joke. No one at the table would laugh, but Fred and I would be laughing really hard.”
Bill Hader Roast
Along being the weirdest guy on Saturday Night Live, Bill Hader was a part of ‘Comedy Central Roast.’ Bill Hader appeared in one episode, and it was the roast of James Franco.
The show runtime was 82 minutes and it was hosted by Seth Rogen… Oh and Irony, Seth is BFFs with James for 20 years, I guess that’s what friends are for.
Bill Hader has done a pretty good job insulting Andy Samberg, Jonah Hill, and pretty much everyone. Here are the highlights of the show.
Bill Hader Stand-Up
The Emmy award winner for Lead Actor in Comedy Series, let’s review the origin of his existence. There is no single member of SNL who hadn’t done stand-up. The thing that made Bill Hader exceptional is that he doesn’t want to do it.
Bill said that the idea of standing in front of people scares the heck out of him. “I don’t know how people do that. I need a character. I need people out there with me.”
So, how did he became what he is today? Bill Hader opens up about his situation, of what happened when he started his career as a production assistant, he said “I didn’t do anything creative that entire time because I just was like, ‘I need to pay the bills.’ he added,
“I need a job where I get out at 6 p.m. So I started a job as a post-production assistant on a Lifetime television show and that led to me being an assistant editor.”
It was his friend that lead him towards the live sketch comedy, his friend took him out one night to watch a 5 level show, Bill went there thinking it would be fun.
When Bill Hader saw that his age of people is doing something like that, they were being creative, and on the other hand, Bill wasn’t doing anything at all. That’s when it hit him, he realizes that he needs to do something like that.
And, it was no long ago after that, when he went in to audition for Saturday Night Live.
