Other than 30 ROCK‘s TINA FEY, it’s hard to come up with the name of a recent SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE alum who’s working on a new and exciting project; perhaps the real Saturday Night Live Curse results in the death of your career (although for the love of all things AMY POEHLER, we hope that we’re wrong).
On the other hand, if STEPHEN COLBERT and his spin-off into fame are any indication, JON STEWART has the Midas touch.
