Accomplished writer Allison Silverman (Russian Doll, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Colbert Report) joins Conan writers Mike Sweeney and Jessie Gaskell to talk about her time working at Late Night with Conan O’Brien. She also talks about having her own bathroom to privately weep in when she felt a pitch didn’t go well at The Daily Show, the reaction in the room being brutal when Stephen Colbert did the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and her experience being in an all female writers room for Russian Doll compared to her early experiences working in a predominantly male writers room.
