UNC alumnus Bryan Tucker, who works as a co-head writer for "Saturday Night Live," paid a visit to the PIT-Chapel Hill on Wednesday.
Tucker has been leaving his mark on the comedy world for the past two decades. He has written jokes for the "Late Show with David Letterman," sketches for "Chappelle’s Show," including the “Racial Draft” sketch, and numerous sketches for "Saturday Night Live," including “What Up With That?” with cast member Kenan Thompson.
Tucker spoke with Ali Farahnakian, a former writer for "SNL" and owner of the PIT-Chapel Hill, for almost two hours about his comedy career and various topics within the genre. The talk included a Q&A session with audience members afterward.
Tucker lived in Craige Residence Hall his first year at UNC and studied journalism. He said his comedy career began while working at UNC STV.
“I was the producer of it my junior and senior year, so I would stay up till three in the morning on Saturday night editing and stuff,” he said.
