2nd Annual "Join the Fight" Luncheon
Featuring Darrell Hammond
Emceed by WFAA Chief Meteorologist, Pete Delkus
As the longest tenured cast member on television’s best-loved comedy series, Saturday Night Live, Darrell Hammond flawlessly brought to life a cavalcade of politicians, media figures and celebrities. During his reign on SNL, few of his cast members were aware that Hammond struggled with drugs, alcohol and self-cutting as a result of the horrific abuse he endured during his childhood.
In 2011, Hammond added New York Times bestselling author to his credentials, with the release of his memoir, which provided a raw look inside the troubled life and mind of an American comic genius. Described as "riveting, revealing, and refreshing in heart and honesty," this open and brave trek through Hammond's life garnered rave reviews. His story is sure to resonate with anyone who shares a love of comedy or a desire to know how an artist can climb from the deepest despair to the very top of his profession.
