Two 'Saturday Night Live' Writers Muse On The Show's Polarizing Political Comedy
Huffington Post - 9 months
Having just concluded a season that produced banner ratings, “Saturday Night Live” remains a political firebrand unlike any other institution. Forty-two years into its existence, the sketch-comedy staple has benefitted from the divisive election of Donald Trump, even after the show’s controversial choice to have him host an episode mid-campaign.  Of course, current-events fodder has always been a key part of the “SNL” brand. What’s changed is the speed at which news travels and the country’s temperament toward establishments of power. Two writers ―Tim Herlihy (1993-2000) and Bryan Tucker (2005-present) ― are scheduled to discuss the staff’s creative process during a panel at this week’s Greenwich International Film Festival. Ahead of the event, HuffPost hopped on the phone with each to reflect on their tenures at the show and what it was like to write during different presidential elections. Below are the highlights, edited for length and clarity. On approaching a comparati...

Huffington Post - 10 months
Video by Aya Elamroussi By Ana Tarlas and Aya Elamroussi Javier Luna came to the U.S. from Peru when he was 24 years old in 1998. The economy was good, the job market was plentiful and American society was enthralled by the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Luna lived in the U.S. through 9/11, the 2008 financial crisis and Donald Trump’s shocking presidential win. He considers the U.S. his home. “Once I touch American soil, I feel home,” Javier said. “I feel safe. This is my home. I live here. I vote. I pay my taxes.

Huffington Post - 10 months
The jokes are on President Donald Trump. Literally. Trump is on course to become the most joked-about president on late-night television in at least the past 25 years, according to a new study. The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University counted the number of opening monologue Trump-themed zingers delivered by Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah during Trump’s first 100 days in office. It found they mocked Trump some 1,060 times. When combined with jokes about Trump’s family and administration, the figure soared to 1,530. ”Donald Trump is head and shoulders above the competition as the politician late night comedians most love to hate,” the center’s director, S. Robert Lichter, said in a statement Thursday. According to the tally, the 100-day joke total is already higher than the number of quips made about former presidents Barack Obama (936), George W. Bush (546) and Bill Clinton (440) during e...

How DNC Chair Tom Perez Can Be Trump's Sunday Show Nightmare
Huffington Post - 12 months
By leveraging a little-known industry gimmick, the first Latino elected as DNC Chair could make TV history and send Donald Trump a message that Democrats are back. Last Sunday, the day after he made history as the first Latino elected to serve as the Democratic Party’s top boss, Tom Perez took to the Sunday shows, appearing on State of the Union with Jake Tapper on CNN... ... and Meet the Press with Chuck Todd on NBC. ... and This Week with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News. It was a fantastic showing, an epic foreshadowing of the spotlight Perez will be under from here on out as chair of the Democratic National Committee. As a Hispanic, I couldn’t be prouder to see Tom Perez as the party’s top boss. Along with Vice Chair Maria Elena Durazo and Finance Chair Henry Muñoz, I’m confident that Hispanic and immigrant perspectives will be at the table as never before in the Democratic Party. As DNC’s former media booker,...
