Tina Fey on “The Daily Show”

In an interview with Readers’ Digest:

RD: What pleases you more, applause or laughter?

Fey: Laughter. You can prompt applause with a sign. My friend, SNL writer Seth Meyers, coined the term clapter, which is when you do a political joke and people go, “Woo-hoo.” It means they sort of approve but didn’t really like it that much. You hear a lot of that on [whispers] The Daily Show.

You reckon that’s ever been the case with one of your predictable anti-Republican gags on SNL, Tina?
