A question I have wondered for years but only now have thought to ask.
The guest hosts' scripted jokes are presumably written by others though.
Sarcy dickhead reply
they all sit and have a brainstorming session beforehand with some writers, might be like that?
I suspect they "solo" off with some of their own stuff and pepper it all with their personal zest.
It wasn't on last night was it? they keep gimping about with it.
they can ry their own shit as well,
The guest hosts get paid more and do less work, apparently.
the guests sit down with the producers and run through the clips quickly, so they've seen them once in advance, that's the only preparation I believe.
it can't be as much as Mock the Week. They clearly get the questions, the answers, choose the topic they do for the standup bit and all sorts. I am not even sure why they pretend.
