Kate McKinnon: "My parents would always do bits from it ["Saturday Night Live"]. They'd say [adopts a high-pitched singsong], "Oh, nooooooo," and I'd be like, 'Why are you saying that?' I just thought they made it up. My mom would do Roseanne Rosannadanna . . . And then they told me it was from a show and they'd let me stay up to watch it." -- McKinnon talking to The Daily Beast about cutting up with her parents in their Sea Cliff home. After years admiring SNL, she made her debut on the show in 2012, making a name largely with a parody of a fellow LIer, "Long Island Medium" Theresa Caputo.(Credit: AP)
