Saturday Night Live: John Mulaney on Baby Rumors, Intervention & More

With NBC's Saturday Night Live expected to make some kind of news very soon on how Season 47 is shaping up, we've been looking back over the past few months at the previous season via SNL's "Stories from the Show" series as well as a number of interviews that the hosts and cast members have run through. Recently, we've looked at how SNL founder Lorne Michaels and the cast were able to pull off the most difficult season in the show's near half-century run. Following that, actor & comedian Dave Chappelle (who hosted the first show after the Joe Biden/Donald Trump election, with musical guests the Foo Fighters) reflected on what the experience was like and how he approaches being on SNL as opposed to being on stage.
