SNL Writer: Gay Character Stefon Was Based On Two Real-Life New Yorkers - VIDEO


Saturday Night Live has already sent off the weirdly wonderful gay NYC party-promoter Stefon (he got married to Anderson Cooper, remember?).

But in a recent talk with former SNL head writer Seth Meyers, co-writer John Mulaney discussed the real-life barista and party-promoter who helped inspire the Stefon character as well as Mulaney's regular attempts to get Stefon actor Bill Hader to crack up during every show.

  1. I'm disgusted by the promotion of effeminany, we must ban all trans activists who want everyone to accept their heterosexual standard of you can be attracted to men only if you are woman.

  2. Ooooookaaaaaay, whatever Litper.

    Anyways...Stefon left Anderson at the alter and ran off with Seth Meyers instead.

  8. I love and miss Stefon so much!! The character was so cute and funny. The way he and Seth would flirt with each other was just as adorable as their cracking up onstage. I wish they could get their own series or at least, bring some new sketches to Seth's show occasionally.

  10. Bill Hader has explained the origins of Stefon for a while now. This isn't new information.

  13. Stefon actually DIDN'T marry Anderson... Seth beat Anderson up and stole Stefon away.

  14. John Mulaney's stand-up special "New In Town" is on Netflix and is LOL funny! He talks about how God meant to make him a gay man but forgot to flip that switch at the last minute, being effeminate as a child, a run-in with an old gay man in a restroom, and a prostate exam gone wrong. So yeah, pretty funny/gay stuff from a very cute and tolerant guy. He has a show coming up on FOX with gay characters as well.

  15. OH Litper/Rick, seek help.

    Posted by: BETTY | Apr 7, 2014 4:29:26 PM

  16. Oh, man, that is so funny. Mulaney is a genius and a cutey-pie to boot.

  17. BF loves Stefon. He's always impersonating him in inappropriate places and embarrassing the hell out of me. He cracks himself up and leaves me pretending I don't know him.

  18. not shocking at all!

  19. Wait he is not gay? Wow, color me surprised.

  20. That's my favorite Stefon sketch--I think it's also the one with the club called (baby doll voice) "Thank YOU" (located in a crashing blimp!), and another club called "......KEVIN?" Oh, and midgets on robot vacuums, just in case you need another visual to crack up over.
