Galifianakis Happy To Break His Saturday Night Live Curse

THE HANGOVER star ZACH GALIFIANAKIS was thrilled to be asked to host hit U.S. comedy show SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE earlier this year (10) - because he'd been thrown off the set twice before.
The funnyman admits he once sneaked onto the set to watch a rehearsal and was asked to leave. Years later, he landed a two-week stint as a writer on the show before he was fired.
He recalls, "When I first moved to New York I snuck into the set for Saturday Night Live. I don't know what I was thinking but I went to the Donahue show (talk show) and I knew he was filming next to Saturday Night Live. I sat through Donahue and when everybody left I just sat and watched them rehearse Saturday Night Live. I guess this was 1997.
"It was surreal walking out on the stage as a guest years later knowing I got kicked out years before for trespassing.
"I actually wrote for Saturday Night Live for two weeks 10 years ago... There was not one laugh the whole time I was there. It was like, 'What have I done?' Then they let me go."
