I think Molly is a really great actor and she was really coming at it from the inside out, as opposed to just applying a silly wig and saying, “I’m doing this character.” But I also think she had a fearlessness. She’d just set her scene up and say, “I want the chairs like that.” And then on the live show she would just run into them. I mean, those folding chairs hurt when you fall into them. And she frickin’ bruised the shit out of herself but she would get and applause and people would go ape shit.

I love Molly Shannon so much. Je n’arrive à croire que certaines personnes pensent —et osent dire— que les femmes sont moins drôles. Du sexisme dans sa forme la plus pure.
