On today's episode I talk to actor and comedian Sasheer Zamata. Originally from
Indianapolis, Indiana, Sasheer moved to New York after college and began taking classes at UCB, eventually becoming a house sketch actor and improviser at the theatre. She was a cast-member of the short-lived MTV sketch show Hey Girl, and she created the webseries Pursuit of Sexiness with Nicole Byer. In 2014, Sasheer joined Saturday Night Live as a featured player, and two years later was promoted to repertory cast-member. She also serves as ACLU's Celebrity Ambassador for Women's Rights.
