In his hilariously-covered new memoir, former SNL comedian Darrell Hammond admits to heavy drinking, drug use, and even of practicing forms of self-harm during his tenure there. According to the Post, Hammond engaged in the behavior to escape painful childhood memories. "I kept a pint of Remy in my desk at work. The drinking calmed my nerves and quieted the disturbing images that sprang into my head…when drinking didn't work, I cut myself," Hammond writes.

In 1998, the NYPD took Hammond from NBC to the hospital in a straightjacket, and when his wife came to pick him up, he "didn't recognize her." During a relapse in 2009, he writes, "I had the brilliant idea I should try crack," a spent a period of time in a crack house in Harlem. Recently, Hammond's one-man show about Truman Capote, Tru, had to be cancelled after he sustained injuries in a car crash. He's currently suing the driver for unspecified damages.

Unlike some SNL alums, Hammond doesn't have any axes to grind: "I don't have anything bad to say about anyone there," Hammond says, "They all really went above and beyond the call for me."
