Bill Hader made the switch from being a master of impressions on SNL to creating, directing, and starring as a burned out assassin trying to break into the LA theater scene in HBO’s Barry. How did he pull it off?
Now entering its second season, Barry is only getting darker, funnier, and more addictive—and it’s being hailed as one of the most refreshing shows on television. The show received 13 Emmy nominations, including Best Actor (for which he won), Best Director and Best Writing for Hader himself—along with Best Series. Join us as Hader and fellow SNL alum John Mulaney discuss the trajectory of his career leading up to the show, the new season, and much more.
