NEW YORK CITY - Saturday Night Live has been an election staple and part of American culture for more than 40 years.

It is must-see viewing for millions of Americans and it has spun off dozens of stars from Will Ferrell to Tina Fey.

Now we're getting an all-access, behind the scenes pass from one of the cast. Rising star Aidy Bryant also just happens to be from the Valley.

Bryant, who is making the whole country laugh, has wanted to be a star for about as long as she can remember.

And now she gets the chance every week.
