It says I’m worth about 100 times more than actually. I’ve worked on a TV show and earned much more per week plus residuals (SNL cast members don’t get much residual money. $7000 per week is hardly anything. The season isn’t year round. Subtract taxes. Subtract 10% for agent and likely 10% for manager. Can barely afford to live in Manhattan let alone being rich. $25,000 per episode is enough to live comfortably in Manhattan and that’s it. But when she leaves the show, there’s no guarantee of future work so she has to save.
