The SNL squad thinks Lindsay can do better.
Ben Affleck is currently dating Lindsay Shookus, producer from Saturday Night Live. You know, that very funny show that airs on Saturday nights! So it comes as no surprise that the people involved with the show are comics who find humor to be very important. Lindsay has been showing off her new beau lately, and everyone enjoyed seeing the power couple at the Emmy’s on Sunday night (well almost everyone!).
Lindsay’s SNL buddies are not impressed with Ben. According to a source, the SNL crew are super tight and they do not easily welcome a new comer into their circle.
They have all come a long way together, and they value talent and comedic skills above fame. As if Ben does not already have a problem entering this tight knit clan, they are not too sure if he would fit in as he is famous but not funny.
It appears that no one has informed him about it yet and as a result he tried to show off throughout the entire night by cracking jokes. According to the insider Ben came across as trying too hard and that he needs to relax and just be himself.
Sadly, by the end of the night they were laughing at him and not with him.
