Hey everyone, Shannon here! Some of you may not already know this about me, but I am a HUGE Saturday Night Live fan. Like, really huge. I haven’t missed an episode in over 13 years. It’s actually one of the reasons I took a career in radio. I discovered SNL when I was in middle school and I became fascinated with the “live” production of the show, the thrill that anything could happen at any moment.
Since I was 16 years old, I have been entering the SNL lottery every year in hopes to win tickets. For the whole month of August, SNL opens its lottery to anxious fans. You have one chance to convince their staff that YOU deserve to be an audience member at a dress- rehearsal or live taping. That’s a lot of pressure! Obviously, my pleads haven’t worked in the past, so I’m asking The Andie Summers Show to help me out.
Here’s what I submitted last year.
Please consider me for the 2021-2022 SNL lottery. We would be incredibly pleasant SNL audience members because we are not only HUGE fans. Let me explain.
My obsession does not stop on Saturday nights. I’m also the proud owner of a pair of Kristin Wiig’s baby hands, every published SNL book, SNL décor, clothes, and of course, how can you successfully ring in the New Year without more cowbell?
I am desperate to go to a dress rehearsal or live-taping. If I win tickets, I will not be able to contain my excitement and just like Kristin Wiig’s iconic character, Sue, I will make a Shannon-sized hole right through the wall.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my email
