Emmy Award winner and Drama Desk Award Phoebe-Waller Bridge hosted Saturday Night Live October 5. Take a look above at the recently released sketch “New Play,” which had been cut for time.
Keenan Thompson plays the director of a new play, A Shout Unscreamed, starring British actors played by Cecily Strong and Waller-Bridge. But the Britain-born stars can’t seem to get the Midwest Nebraska accent right.
Waller-Bridge recently won three Emmy Awards for her Amazon series Fleabag: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Comedy Series. The series was inspired by her solo show of the same name; she was Drama Desk-nominated for the stage version's recent Off-Broadway bow.
