Bill Hader’s recommendation of Pete was paying forward the good fortune that landed him an SNL audition all those years ago. Arguably the most versatile utility-player in SNL history, Bill was only flirting with comedy when he got his big break. Following a big break-up, Bill signed up for Second City improv classes in a characteristic panic and found that he was a natural, forming his own sketch comedy group with some friends from the program. Amongst its members was Matt Offerman, brother of Parks and Recreation standout Nick Offerman.

She recommended Bill to Lorne Michaels, and the rest was history.
