Live Sesson: Comedian Natasha Rothwell (Writer, SNL)

The Hype Magazine grabs some time with comedian Natasha Rothwell (Writer, SNL), who is taking part in a new sketch comedy series from Netflix called Netflix Presents: The Characters.

One show. Eight comedians. Multiple personalities. In Netflix Presents: The Characters, the next generation of comedians get a chance that only Netflix could offer: the opportunity to create their own 30-minute episodes and do whatever they want. No rules. No limits. Each comedian writes and appears in his/her episode, presenting a series of sketches that veer wildly from Bachelor parodies, to music videos, to biblical spoofs… all in the name of outlaw comedy.

In additional to NatashaThe Characters features: Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is The New Black, Jurassic World), Kate Berlant(The Meltdown), Dr. Brown (Dr. Brown), Paul W. Downs (Broad City), John Early (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp), Tim Robinson (SNL), andHenry Zebrowski (Heroes Reborn). The series also features cameos from SNL’s Cecily Strong and Bobby MoynihanTyson Beckford, and Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson.
