  • Congratulations on Shrill.

  • If you haven't seen it, it's a Hulu series.

  • I'm not talking to you because you've seen it,

  • but people watching.

  • It's a Hulu series.

  • You're the executive producer.

  • You write.

  • You star in it.

  • Explain to everyone what it is about.

  • Yeah, it's based on a memoir called Shrill.

  • And it's basically the story of a girl who is fat and has spent

  • her entire life hating herself.

  • And, literally, trying to make herself smaller by dieting.

  • And she reaches a breaking point and she decides,

  • you know what, I want to change my life,

  • but I don't want to change my body.

  • And here I go, let's try and do it.

  • So she's really trying to break through all this messaging

  • about worth and size of body.

  • And, I don't know, for me, it's very

  • close to my own experience.

  • So it's been a really fun thing to put on TV.

  • And to have a fat lead who has a full, dynamic life

  • and has sex and all that stuff.

  • Yeah.

  • A lot of sex.

  • A lot of sex.

  • One of my favorite lines is--

  • I think your mother is talking about eating the six almonds

  • and how full she gets.

  • And you say, sometimes when I eat six,

  • I feel like I've had 12 or--

  • is that the line that I'm remembering?

  • It's hilarious.

  • Yes.

  • I've never understood that.

  • When people say, have a handful of nuts

  • and that will be a snack.

  • It's like, no, it's not a snack at all.

  • Six almonds.

  • It's a dark way to live and--

  • Yeah.

  • And I think a lot of women spend most of their life

  • running that loop through their head.

  • And being like, how many almonds can I have.

  • And what this, and that.

  • And it-- it wastes a lot of your time in a lot of ways.

  • Yeah.

  • And it's also-- I mean, your mother just

  • guilting you, and talking about how full she is

  • and how she can't possibly eat all that.

  • It's that-- and I think a lot of people

  • can relate to their mothers doing that to them

  • when you're growing up.

  • And you know, when you're sitting there next to somebody

  • who's telling you that they couldn't possibly eat all that.

  • And then it's like, then what do I feel like trying to eat this.

  • Yeah, so it's all good messaging.

  • And there is a lot of sex in there.

  • A lot.

  • Do parents enjoy seeing that?

  • Or does your husband-- how does your husband feel?

  • I mean, it's graphic.

  • When the Boy Scouts show up-- when you're, you know.

  • Oh, Ellen.

  • I'm sorry, yes.

  • I don't think it's their favorite part of the show.

  • But at least how I sell it to them--

  • my parents and my husband-- is, I'm like,

  • it's a story about someone who's facing their body.

  • So how can you not involve sex in that?

  • And then also I like to get mine on set, so.

  • Oh.

  • All right.

  • All of the characters in it are hilarious.

  • It's so good.

  • Anyway.

  • All right, so I know you're supporting the charity

  • Frontline Foods, right?

  • Yes.

  • OK, so I'm going to give you the chance

  • to raise some money for them.

  • You play so many amazing characters on SNL.

  • We're going to play The Accent Game.

  • So you have some accents there.

  • You will do the accent.

  • I will try to guess what the accent is.

  • Andy, you can't play.

  • Right, because I'm a linguist.

  • Yeah, because you would figure it out too fast.

  • Portia and I will guess.

  • Portia is off to the side and she'll help me.

  • Hi, Portia!

  • Say hi.

  • Hi, Aidy.

  • There she is.

  • OK.

  • All right, so $1,000 for each one that I guess correctly.

  • OK.
