Saturday Night Live (SNL) comedian Michael Che will join Associated Student, Inc. (ASI) for a Q&A from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. today, Nov. 12.
The comedian, writer, actor and co-anchor of SNL’s iconic “Weekend Update” segment will answer student questions, which will be chosen by ASI.
The event will be moderated by comedian Anna Drezen, co-head writer of SNL.
“We encourage students to come enjoy this unique opportunity with a prominent figure in late-night comedy,” student manager of ASI Events and recreation, parks and tourism administration senior Nick Price said.
Che is a co-head writer for the late night comedy sketch show, and is currently in his sixth season as co-anchor of the classic “Weekend Update” segment. Before joining SNL’s cast, Che was a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and appeared in Chris Rock’s film, “Top Five.” In 2016, “Michael Che Matters,” Che’s hour-long comedy special, premiered on Netflix.
Along with comedy writing, Drezen is editor of satirical women’s magazine, “Reductress,” and is a member of the Gentlemen Party sketch group and educational performance group, Story Pirates.
Che and Drezen have been nominated for three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series.
“We invite students to submit questions for the chance to engage with Michael Che live,” Price said.
Questions may be submitted online, according to the ASI Event website.
