The Comedian Who Changed My Life is a new series where comics talk about, you guessed it, the comedian who changed their life. This week, Bill Hader talks about Megan Mullally.

Hi I’m Bill Hader, and the comedian that changed my life, would have to be Miss Megan Mullally because she saw me in a show and recommended me to Lorne Michaels and gave me the biggest break of my life. I went from being assistant editor on Iron Chef America to a featured player on Saturday Night Live so I owe everything to Megan Mullally, but not her husband Nick.

Outside of SNL, he’s known for roles in Superbad, Knocked Up, and as the voice of Flint Lockwood in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs among others.  Hader is currently receiving rave reviews for his performance in the new movie, The Skeleton Twins, which he co-stars in with Kristin Wiig.
