Larry King: It also did a great deal to promote female comedians.
Chris Kattan: Yes, they do. The show? Yes, oh by far. And I came at a time right after I think there was some of that, there was a bit of a problem with that. You know, I don’t think it was sexist, but it was a difficulty when Jeanine Garofalo and those people were on that there wasn’t much of say they had.
Larry King: It was a male dominated show.
Chris Kattan: It was more of a male dominated, and um- but I mean I got to say like Sandler and Farley, I mean- Spade, that was a great cast. I mean those three were phenomenal, hilarious. And um, it did change when I think Cheri Oteri had a lot to do with the energy, Molly Shannon. And then of course Tina Fey came on, it was, I think she gave a great writing voice, her writing was incredible, and really strong. But I think somebody like Molly Shannon was like incredible as a performer, so that mix was perfect. And then when you get somebody like Amy Poehler coming on whose a combination. Writing from UCB and performing it’s like that makes for that level of women, you know for the next generation.
