SNL ‘went to a gay joke as a lazy, poorly crafted punch line’

SOUNDBITES — “Just like a joke based on race, it really depends on each individual joke, scenario, and person telling it. One of the faults of SNL that we were well aware of while I was on the show is that we often just went to a gay joke as a lazy, poorly crafted punch line. But a gay joke could be funny if it wasn’t lazy and it had some real wit to it.” —Rachel Dratch on the art of a gay joke [Advocate]
