Working on SNL

“It is a really f***ing hard job; I don’t know how they do it,” Shane said he was told of working at SNL. “So everybody this whole time has been like, ‘You dodged a bullet. You wouldn’t have fit in there.’ And I’ve been like,’ I don’t know, I think I could’ve done it.’ One week [of doing ‘SNL’], I was like, ‘Nah. This worked out.’” Listen to the full episode of The Bonfire featuring guests Shane Gillis and Dan Soder, a former host of the SiriusXM show.
