But after leaving SNL in 2006, Dratch admittedly found her career at a bit of low point. After being recast in the pilot of 30 Rock (she was supposed to play the part of Jenna Maroney, now played by Jane Krakowski) the 46-year-old funny lady found the only roles she was being offered were as "lesbians, secretaries and sometimes secretaries who are lesbians."
Good news, though: Dratch took this down time to start writing short stories that would eventually be turned into her new memoir, Girl Walks into a Bar..., which is in stores today. In the memoir, she gives readers an insight into her life both before, during, and after SNL, and reveals the sometimes-too-real details of having a "wholly unplanned, undreamed-of child" as a single woman living in New York City.
Watch her talk about the experience and play a round of Likes or Yikes? with iVillage's Jacki Garfinkel and Pat Sandora.
