Julia Louis-Dreyfus Jokes About Her Years On ‘SNL’ In Monologue – WATCH VIDEO
Julia Louis-Dreyfus opened her “SNL” monologue by talking about how she used to be on the show, joking how her characters were not very memorable. She then talked about some of her films, which also barely featured her. After that Louis-Dreyfus apologized for how her show “Veep” was supposed to be about a narcissistic, buffoon in politics, and now that’s happened. See the video below of Louis-Dreyfus’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue.
This marks the third time Louis-Dreyfus has hosted “Saturday Night Live.” The first time Louis-Dreyfus hosted was back in May 2006 when Paul Simon was the musical guest. She came back the next year to host again. Of course, Louis-Dreyfus knows the ins-and-outs of “SNL,” having been a cast member from 1982-1985. And it was during her time on the show that she became friends with one of its writers, Larry David, who would later create and cast her in “Seinfeld.”
A few days ago, Louis-Dreyfus noted that she looks back at her time on the show “fondly-ish.” The comedic actress, who was on “SNL” alongside Eddie Murphy, Martin Short, and Billy Crystal, told the New York Times, “It was a very sexist environment” back then, but it’s “much more of an equal-opportunity environment” since she’s returned to the sketch comedy show.
Louis-Dreyfus’s appearance on “Saturday Night Live” is in advance of the season five premiere on April 24 of her hit HBO series “Veep.” Check out the video below of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s “SNL” monologue.
