Bill Hader stopped by to chat with his old pal Seth Meyers on Late Night last night, where the two reminisced on their weepy SNL parting and the faux Stefon-Seth wedding. Known as a character primarily comprised of Hader breaking into laughter, he explained that the reason Stefon always put his hands up to his face was because the way Meyers would respond to the character made him laugh, too. "A person being patient with an insane person is my favorite thing in the world," he said.

Tonight David Letterman celebrates 30 years on the air. It's been quite a ride for old Dave, through different timeslots and networks, from the peak of zeitgeist to something else entirely.
