With his well-known impressions of Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, among many others, Darrell Hammond holds the impressive distinction of having been the longest standing cast member of Saturday Night Live, performing regularly from 1996-2010. Throughout his career, he has been a stellar standup comedian and has also performed in numerous films, on stage and on TV, in Law & Order SVU as well as the late night shows. He is also the author of the best-selling memoir: God, If You’re Not Up There, I’m F*cked. His account is a telling tale of his difficult upbringing and his challenges with mental health and substance use issues, areas that are near and dear to the mission of Homes with Hope.
