Jon Stewart looks back on making Stephen Colbert break character on The Daily Show in his Reddit AMA earlier today.

Jenny Slate Reflects on Her 'SNL' Days

"You know, SNL was a challenge for me, mostly because of how I treated myself. Everyone was very kind to me, but if there was one thing I would change, I would ask people to stop saying that 'now is the time for women in comedy' because it's rude to all of the women who came before us, patronizing to those of us doing it, and backwards in general. Comedy comes from my nature, not my gender!"

Jenny Slate opens up about her SNL days in a recent Reddit AMA.

Gushing about Wood and All the Best Parts from Nick Offerman's AMA

Nick Offerman did a Reddit AMA last Friday and was the best. Unlike many people who only answer the serious questions (I'm looking atchu Barry Obams), Offerman seemingly veered towards the sillier stuff. Below read his best quotes on the topics of wood, his wife, Parks & Rec and more!

On how he is drastically different from Ron:

I wouldn't call it drastic, but my penis is 5/8" larger than Ron's, in both length AND breadth, but it is held that he wields his with greater aplomb.

On Amy Poehler:

I met Amy in the early 90's and she is like a superhero mixed with both Coach and Tammie [...]

What Chevy Did and All the Best Parts from Dan Harmon's AMA

Dan Harmon did a Reddit AMA yesterday and, of course, it was the best and nerdiest. He talked about what was the specific Chevy Chase straw that broke his camel back, meeting Charlie Kaufman and Mitch Hurwitz, and tons more. The best quotes are below:

What actually happened with Chevy:

He refused to do the "tag" for the Digital Estate Planning episode (the 8 bit video game episode). In the scripted tag, Abed comes to Pierce with the thumb drive he took, and says "Pierce, I've been able to adjust some of the code for your Dad's video game and I've made a version I think you might [...]

The Best of Nathan Fielder's Reddit AMA

Nathan for You star Nathan Fielder did a Reddit AMA with fans yesterday that's full of great responses on everything from how he keeps a straight face while filming the show to what it felt like to be called a "wizard of loneliness" by the private detective last season: "As mean as that was, I thought that was incredibly poetic for a guy like him. Very unexpected. But I guess there are many sides to all of us."

Scott Thompson Describes a Cut 'Kids in the Hall' Sketch About Big Packages

"Yes, one called 'Baskets' by me and Kevin. We were reporters with enormous genitals who worked for a newspaper that was only concerned with issues affecting the big packages community. It took place at a press conference. Bruce was the politician, Dave was his saxophone playing wife and Mark was Peter Allan the Australian singer/songwriter for some reason."

Fighting a Horse Sized Duck and All the Best Parts from Rob Delaney's AMA

Earlier this afternoon, Rob Delaney descended into the belly of the Internet to do a Reddit AMA. He answered silly questions and serious questions and everything in between. Here are the best quotes.

On if he's worried about being known as "The Twitter Guy":

I actually don't. And if I were known that way, that'd be fine too. I'm 35, married, a dad, sober; I'm VERY boring in real life. That I can make a living by telling jokes, be it online, onstage, on TV or wherever the hell makes me very, very grateful. If I complained AT ALL, it would be fair to call me a stupid-headed [...]
