The Secrets of Saturday Night Live
Dana says at his audition for Lorne, he went on right after Jim Carrey. "So I go out and it's just silence," he says. "And Lorne, in his fashion, [says], 'When are you going to start being funny?' But I realized later that Lorne was testing me to see if I could be 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and I wouldn't crack."
When Tracy was auditioning for Lorne, he says he had a different concern. "I met Lorne Michaels at Yankee Stadium," he says. "I was working at Gate 4, and that was behind the bleachers. Lorne would come in every week and I would overcharge him for Yankee stuff. I was more concerned about him going, 'Wait a minute. That little baseball bat was only $10. You charged me $15!'"
Tracy says from the day he auditioned for Lorne, his life has been changed. "We've been eating since I met Lorne Michaels," he says. "He's the coolest."
