Seth and Stefon Meyers text posts
There was a guy Bill would buy coffee from, who had Stefon’s mannerisms. He would always put his hands over his face, and he once said to Bill that he lived on the Lower Lower East Side.
"I didn’t get emotional. People were kinda like the whole time, "Are you emotional? Are you… ?" and I was like, "No, not really." I was just kinda like, oh this is great, I’m gonna come back and see all these people and stuff. And then during the last show, you know, Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg all told me, "Oh, our last shows, we got emotional." And I’m like, "Oh yeah, I’m fine, you know." And then we did the last Stefon thing, you that, and watching that and I’m with Seth Meyers, I was just like… And it all hit me, I’d been there 8 years, and I was like, "I love you guys!" You know what I mean, I got really emotional."
Happy one year anniversary to my favourite couple!
