Amber Ruffin Facts

  1. She has affirmed that the best part of being in her profession has been to suddenly see the machinery of sets, costumes, and props being set into motion for the idea she had come up with, with people she has never met before calling her up and commenting on the characters she had created.
  2. When she embarked on her role with Late Night with Seth Meyers, she became the first African American woman to write for a late-night network talk show in America. In a time in which both African-Americans and women have been fighting to find equal footing in an industry that has been dominated by men for ages, Amber’s accomplishment has been considered to have huge implications in matters where opportunities for women and people of color are concerned.
  3. She has revealed that she does not feel like she is doing good comedy unless she feels like she is in a little danger and that she has wanted to be somewhat uncomfortable and scared, having believed that otherwise, her work will not be interesting enough to appeal to anyone.
