Good One: A Podcast About Jokes

Good One: A Podcast About Jokes is a podcast about - well - jokes, and the people who tell them. Each week, a comedian will play one of their jokes and then break it down with Senior Editor Jesse David Fox.


episode 131: Aidy Bryant's Overnight Salad

This week, we've got a rerun with recent Saturday Night Live alumn Aidy Bryant! In addition to Aidy being a highlight of the show since she joined in 2012, she also starred in and executive produced the Hulu series Shrill, a show that is “about a fat young woman who wants to change her life — but not her body.”

In this Good One episode, Jesse talks to Aidy about her SNL sketch “Overnight Salad,” a digital short that aired in the last episode before quarantine shut down in-studio production. As Aidy discusses in the interview, it’s a sketch that she might not have felt comfortable pitching or writing much earlier in her career. Similarly, Shrill feels like a creative milestone in Aidy’s career, with characters and humor that feel more authentically Aidy. 

You can watch episodes of Shrill on Hulu. Episodes of Saturday Night Live are available on Hulu or the NBC app, and you can catch clips on YouTube. You can follow Aidy on Instagram. Follow Jesse David Fox on Twitter and Instagram.
