Hugh Fink – Comedy Writer (SNL / Martha & Snoop)

Hugh Fink
Take a walk with me down Fascination Street as I get to know comedy writing icon Hugh Fink. Hugh has written for such shows as: The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, and he spent SEVEN years writing for Saturday Night Live. In this episode we chat about what it was like growing up in a Jewish family in a VERY unlikely; and UN-Jewish place. Then we jump right into how and why he got into comedy and tv writing. Hugh tells us some fun stories about working in the industry, including stories about SNL, the time he almost got David Spade beat up by Eddie Murphy, and even a phone call he had with OJ Simpson! Finally, we discuss Hugh’s classes where he teaches; both how to write comedy sketches, and how to write for late night television. I had such a great time sitting down with Hugh! Special thanks to our mutual friend Stephen Krueger for making this happen. Enjoy!
