Jon Hamm / Coldplay
We started this week as a total nerd-fest. Monday is the day we pitch our sketch ideas to Lorne and our host. We walk into a small office, sit, and one by one talk about what we want to try that week. It's mainly a way for us to all get together and feel out how the show is going to be. But for this pitch meeting, we all wanted to do something special for Jon Hamm since we are ALL such huge Mad Men fans. So we decided to show up totally dressed up in suits and early 60's style dresses. It's funny because we've never done anything like that for pitch. Many of us had cigarettes and glasses of scotch too. It seemed like he really liked it and I'm glad we did it. Everyone looked great. I can't even remember what the pitches were.
I loved the whole show. We had some special guests. Maya came back to do Michelle Obama. She is one of my favorite people ever and it was amazing getting to work with her again. And Elisabeth Moss and John Slattery from Mad Men appeared as their characters in the A-Holes Mad Men sketch. Everyone was psyched to meet them as well.
I was tempted to go from sketch to sketch and talk about what was cool about them, but you get the idea. I had fun the entire night.
Coldplay played a few extra songs and I thought they were fantastic. I got to meet Chris Martink, who was the nicest ever.
Okay, so the photos below are from after the pitch meeting I just wrote about. Some of us went out to dinner and then ended up in this candy store. I was laughing about how we are these grown men in suits totally excited about getting candy. So I took some pictures.
