"Some people look at me and have sort of a visceral, angry reaction (to me)," the SNL "Weekend Update" co-anchor said on NPR's Fresh Air while promoting his memoir, which was released Tuesday. "You see it in our audience. When I get hurt or hit on camera — like when (castmate) Cecily (Strong) throws drinks in my face or throws up red wine on me — the audience really loves it." Jost added: "Part of writing this book was being excited to talk about parts of my life and weird episodes in my life that I thought that would be entertaining for people." As for when Jost will leave SNL, he says: "It's a world that I love so much. You just don't know how often you get to work at a place like that, and the odds are zero other times in my life will I get to work at a place like that. So it's a scary but a necessary decision to face at some point."
