“I’ve never set out to write a funny movie or be a funny comedian as a woman. I am a woman. I don’t really have a choice in the matter. My goal is just to be funny.”

“Years ago, when I was young and vibrant, I flashed [Chris Parnell] my boobs on my birthday. It was right before I started SNL, and I was drinking so much tequila that I flashed him my boobs at a party at my house. The next day he called me, and he left this message: ‘Hello, Maya, this is Chris Parnell. I want to say thank you very much for showing me your boobs last night. I appreciate it.’ It’s probably my favorite message I’ve ever received. It was so fucking funny.”
Happy Birthday Maya Rudolph!

There was something crazy about that sketch from the beginning. It tickled a funny bone where Kristen got the giggles -– even in rehearsal. When we were coming out in the golf cart, I looked at her and I knew. I heard it, this laugh of hers that comes from the throat. It tripped some sort of wire in her where she couldn’t stop. Something about that voice … it’s a voice we do when we’re joking around with each other in life. It’s just a stupid, dumb voice, but it gets her every time.
