Vanessa Bayer is a featured cast member on Saturday Night Live this season. Three years ago, she was just another single face on Comcast's Dating on Demand.

If you were in Chicago in 2007, you could have looked her up on your cable TV as sassy2 and asked her out on a date. But you didn't. You lose.
