Rob Riggle spent 15 years in the Marines before landing his first real comedy job on the cast of ‘Saturday Night Live.’ It has seemingly been nothing but smooth sailing since then with stints on ‘The Daily Show,’ scene-stealing turns in films like ‘Step Brothers’ and ‘The Hangover’ and his most recent gig hosting ABC’s ‘Holey Moley.’ In this episode, Riggle opens up about the struggles he faced along the way, including what he describes as a ‘dysfunctional’ year at SNL and the highest-stakes audition imaginable for Jon Stewart.
