Fran Lebowitz Explains Why She Has No Interest In Seeing SNL Sketch About Her

Fran Lebowitz Explains Why She Has No Interest In Seeing SNL Sketch About Her

Fran Lebowitz is opening up about that Saturday Night Live sketch about her that aired this weekend on the comedy show.

The 70-year-old author spoke to Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM show about the sketch and how she found out about it, as she doesn’t have a cellphone or computer.

“I went into the kitchen where there’s my answering machine, a device, which you may have to describe to your listeners,” she joked. “There were messages on it, and I thought something horrible happened, someone died, you know? And so I got these messages. But no, I didn’t see.”

Fran add of the reason why she wouldn’t watch it anyway: “I generally don’t like to watch myself and this has always been true, even when I looked a lot better.”

“I don’t like to watch myself. I don’t like to hear my voice. I would never watch myself on television when I know I’m on television. And people say, ‘Why don’t you want to watch?’ I say, ‘Well, I know what I said, and I don’t want to watch it.’”

See the sketch below:

While Fran did not see the show, she still has some opinions on it.

“I’m trying to guess if I had known it was going to be on, would I have watched it? I probably would not have, but I would have at least known it was going to be on. So I really knew nothing about this,” she says.

Fran continued, “They certainly didn’t alert me that this was going to be on. And so I was surprised by it. Yes, because I know it’s a very big network television show, and I would imagine that they would expect their viewers to know what they’re talking about.”

Like Fran, this other celebrity doesn’t have a cellphone or computer either…
