Andy Samburg Reveals ‘SNL’ Process with Justin Timberlake [AUDIO]
SNL’s funny guy Andy Samburg phoned in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Thursday to chat upcoming SNL finale with Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga.
As for how Andy and Justin come up with the hilarious material, (a la “D*** In A Box), Andy explains, “it’s kind of just lock the door and throw out every idea every one has and see what sticks.” Adding, “we’re stil sort of just right in the middle of it so I couldnt give you a spoiler even if I wanted to.”
Andy goes on to explain they then contemplate, “is it going to be a song or something else or more sketchy or impression, character based.” Furthering, “then we talk it down with him and everyone meets with him…wait until there are the main picks and then you decide what the show needs as well.”
As far as musical guest Lady Gaga goes, Samburg suggests the mother of all monsters may be doing more than just singing! Expressing, “I certainly hope so” as for if she’ll participate in the funny, adding, “she’s a born entertainer, she was ‘Born This Way’.”
