Simon Rich  

Writer, Saturday Night Live

Twenty-four-year-old humorist Simon Rich has the kind of career upon which authorial dreams are made: He is the youngest-ever writer for Saturday Night Live, has been published in The New Yorker, and already has a book under his belt — the well-reviewed 2007 collection Ant Farm: And Other Desperate Situations. Now he’s back with a second collection, Free-Range Chickens, in which he muses on everything from the monsters that hid in his closet as a child to the absurdity of the euphemism "the world’s oldest profession." Rich spoke to Vulture about the new book, the upcoming season of SNL — which premieres this weekend — and the possibility of a certain bookish brunette tackling the role of our nation’s latest vice-presidential fixation.
