Comedian Nasim Pedrad introduces us to her jarringly awkward 14-year-old Chad. No, Chad isn’t Pedrad’s son.

Pedrad, who gave us many memorable parodies as Kim Kardashian and Arianna Huffington on her five-year run on Saturday Night Live, spent the past five years developing the character of Chad. “Well, it’s been quite a journey,” she tells us. “I do feel somewhat like I’ve been pregnant for five years, and the birth is […]

Taco Bell’s Nachos BellGrande. Culver’s ButterBurger. Chick-fil-A’s Chicken Sandwich (extra sauce, please). McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin With Cheese.
