Our GIRL Vanessa Bayer was a guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night, which is already pretty cool. Even better is that the Penn alum and her old SNL costar talked SMAC – a.k.a. Singers, Musicians And Comedians, a subdivision of the Performing Arts Council (PAC)! (Puns on acronyms, a UTB special.)
Check the video above to see the twosome chat extensively about Vanessa's years as an undergrad. She ended up in Bloomers – Seth's a fan – but she hilariously mentions her failed auditions for Off The Beat ("I think they're still around") and other groups which had enthusiastically recruited at FPAN. Ah, the age-old lesson she learned – hyperactive marketing doesn't mean they actually want you. Luckily, she was more than good enough for Bloomers...and the rest was history.
P.S. Shoutout to Seth for saying "Penn," plain and simple. He gets it.
