Here’s a Q and the A from the Reddit AMA hosted by Lindsey, the audience member on whose lap Sarah sat as part of the monologue on the October 4 Saturday Night Live. (Lindsey was great, by the way. Watch the clip if you haven’t already; Sarah goes into the audience at 5:45 remainder time.)
Q: Wow, this is awesome, thanks for doing this! I was watching with my buddies last night and I was insisting to them that they had to have let the person know that she was going to be in the monologue on live TV. Guess I was wrong Anyways, what was going through your head as Sarah was walking up to you and about to sit on your lap?
A: Nope I had no clue, and I have no connections whatsoever to the show, other than being a fan! (People asked me that afterwards. They thought it was scripted.)
What was running through my head: “holy shit, no this is not happening. Is this for real? Uh, I have to say something?! Don’t fuck up, don’t fuck up… Sit up straight. My hand is on her back – where do I put my hand? I shouldn’t leave it on her back, right? Don’t look at the screen. Shit, I looked at the screen. My friends and family are probably going crazy – I can’t believe this is happening!” And I felt like it lasted forever! Definitely one of the most memorable moments of my life.
And here’s more from Lindsey about her experience at the show: (more…)
