Molly Shannon

What do you do:

Where do you work:
TV, Movies in New York City, and all over

Why work in this field:
I come from a family where my dad believed, just do what makes you happy. He was very supportive about that. He was never about make money or this or that. If you are happy it doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are happy doing it.

How would you advise others interested in being on SNL:
If someone was in LA I’d say go to The Groundlings; they always pull from The Groundlings. Personally I never went to The Groundlings, but they always seem to go there or Second City in Chicago. I don’t know much about where they look in New York, I guess Upright Citizen’s Brigade. They do see other people who do their own thing, but you would probably have to have an agent that would know somebody there. To just get in cold without knowing anybody would be hard.
