Anyone who has seen Bill Hader on Saturday Night Live or his supporting work in films like Superbad and Adventureland knows he’s hilarious. But did you know that Hader also writes for South Park? I did not and now I do and I think we’re all better for the experience.
Steve recently interviewed Hader (who’s doing press for Paul) and asked how he came to be credited as a creative consultant on season 12. Hader explains how the writing behind the show works and that he’s still on board as a consulting writer and will be going on a three-week retreat in April where showrunners Trey Parker and Matt Stone hash out their ideas. For those curious as to how the South Park machine works, hit the jump. The 15th season of South Park premieres Wednesday, April 27th at 10pm on Comedy Central. You can expect Steve’s full interview with Hader this week.
