FBLA Exclusive: What’s It Like To Be Spoofed on SNL?

Ben Mankiewicz of The Young Turks and AMC fame is now just a cog in a series of Bill Hader characters. Wow – Mankiewicz was parodied on SNL! We asked Ben what it feels like to be the Christine O’Donnell of TYT. “Seeing yourself spoofed on SNL is surreal,” the host tells FBLA. “Everybody thinks it’s great…but my mother. She asked, ‘Being parodied on TV does that make you a joke?’”

Relax Mrs. Mankiewicz, your son is still serious basic cable and Internet show host. But he does now have pretty stellar pick up line. Our suggestion: “Don’t be a hater ’cause I was played by Bill Hader!” Ahem.
