Joseph Gordon-Levitt / Dave Mathews Band

It was a little scary watching Joseph rehearse that monologue over and over again. Watching him do those multiple flips. Sometimes he would do them, sometimes he wouldn't. I guess he was just saving them for the actual show. But every time it was like..."is he going to make it?..yes! Whew." He really committed to everything he did on the show.
Dave Matthews was really funny as Ozzy, and Kenan as Reba kills me. He did that live on a show that Andy headlined at Town Hall here in NYC. I got to be on it too as did a few of the SNL writers. What Up With That is so incredibly fun to do. Every rehearsal of it is insane. We always try to carefully block it so that they can set up the camera shots, but by the time we do it live it's just everyone filling in the stage wherever they can fit. Chaos. I never really know who the guests are going to be. It's always a surprise on Saturday.

This was on a guitar amp for Dave Matthews. It's actually a laptop with graphics of amp heads and effects.
