Michelle Wolf told NPR’s Terry Gross she “wouldn’t change a single word” of her headline-making White House Correspondents’ Dinner monologue. “I didn’t want to cater to the room. I wanted to cater to the outside audience, and not betray my brand of comedy,” said Wolf, who drew criticism for making fun of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders’ appearance. Not so, said Wolf. “If there are two people that I actually made fun of their looks on Saturday it was Mitch McConnell and Chris Christie,” noted Wolf, “and no one is jumping to their defense.”

According to Carol Burnett, the comedy project she was to star in for ABC, exec produced by Amy Poehler, was snuffed out due to network meddling – a situation she’d never encountered during the run 1967-1978 run of The Carol Burnett Show on CBS. “They never even asked to see the script,” Burnett told the New York Post. When it came to her recent pilot, Burnett said, “At this time of my life, do I want to face a bunch of network or advertising people who want to make their opinions known? I just don’t want to be around that.” Presumably she doesn’t have to in Netflix’s upcoming A Little Help with Carol Burnett, premiering May 4.
