HUNKYDORY ENLIST HANNAH LEVY.
9 August 2022

HunkyDory have added Saturday Night Live director Hannah Levy to their ranks. She joined SNL in 2018 and has directed some of the show's most popular online videos with creative partner Adriana Robles. Now she's ready for a solo adventure on these shores.

Levy also becomes HunkyDory's fifth signing of 2022 after Sasha Levinson, Trevor McMahan, Thomas Beug, and Tom McKay. Before she meets her fellow newcomers, Levy says: "HunkyDory does amazing work, and I'm really looking forward to collaborating with them in the comedy space."



Stints at the likes of Funny or Die and The Onion put her in good stead, as well as her superior cocktail making skills (Levy attended bartending school before she found her true calling). Expect Manhattans all round at the HunkyDory Christmas party.

Before then, take a look at this droll spot for the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention that encourages Americans to wear face masks. The more people wear them, says the protagonist, the quicker she can visit friends again and criticise their interior design choices.



For more information on Hannah Levy, email HunkyDory's Ronae Rayson via ronae@hunkydoryfilms.co.uk or call 020 7267 5000.
