Darrell Hammond Reveals Dark Past

Former 'SNL' comic discusses his new memoir, 'God, If You're Not Up There...' and his tumultuous life

Comedian Darrell Hammond reflects on the ups and downs of life in the public eye. — Brian Marcus

Darrell Hammond was a cast member on Saturday Night Live for a record 14 years, but success on the iconic late-night show masked a personal life that was constantly on the verge of falling apart.

In his new memoir, God, If You're Not Up There…, the comedian chronicles his topsy-turvy existence: a harrowing childhood filled with physical and emotional abuse, a lifetime spent battling alcoholism, bouts of self-mutilation, psychiatric hospitalizations and misdiagnoses. On SNL, he wowed with impersonations of Bill Clinton, Dick Cheney, Chris Matthews and a hundred other prominent figures, but finding himself proved an ongoing struggle.

Hammond talks to us about his new book, which delves into the darkest corners of his life, both in front of and behind the camera, with brutal honesty and fierce comic wit.
