Anthony Crispino

"Just like Drunk Uncle, Colin Jost came to me one night saying, 'I need to write an Update sketch. What about a second-hand news guy? Someone who gets his news from terrible sources?' I said, 'That's brilliant' and immediately went into Anthony's voice. The only thing I added was the looking around, because I think it's funny when you're saying nothing that's a secret to look around as if you shouldn't be saying it. We called him Angelo Scaggs at a dress rehearsal but changed it when Colin said, 'I have a buddy I went to high school with named Anthony Crispino.' I actually met the real Anthony Crispino last summer and I was pretty happy about it. I said, 'Do you mind if I get a picture with you?' He looked around just like Anthony Crispino and said, 'Shouldn't I be asking you that?' I still don't know if he was doing a bit or not."
