Anthony Jeselnik: ‘I Would Throw Everything Away to Be the Weekend Update Anchor’


“I would give away everything that I have to be a ‘Weekend Update’ anchor, and I don’t think it will ever happen. It’s one of those things that would have been my dream job, but as I was coming up, SNL never called me. They never asked me to submit a packet or come on board … I’ve always told agents and managers if that job is ever in play, I want to be in the conversation, even if it’s just to have my name brought up in the room. But I would throw everything away to be the ‘Weekend Update’ anchor.”
