She then turned her attention to her hosting duties and preparations for SNL. “The reason this show is so fun to do isn’t actually the performance or the show itself. It’s getting to spend time with the people there,” Schumer wrote.
“The cast and the writers of course but the people who are behind the scenes making it run smooth are my favorite. The crew! Donna. Jerry. Jodi. Genna. Tom Wally and on and on. Lorne has assembled the most talented people with the kindest hearts,” she added. “Thank you everyone there and to the doctors and nurses who helped us.”
She posted a series of images alongside the long caption, along with a behind-the-scenes video of her time on the set of “Saturday Night Live.”
