If there is anyone who could deliver the worst news in the world with a smile on her face and give you hope that everything will be OK, it’s Amber Ruffin.

With her sweet and cheery demeanor and a don’t-mess-with-me twist of irreverent shade, Ruffin has written for various shows and her signature comedy has been featured on Drunk History, but she is best known from her work as a writer on Late Night with Seth Meyers. However, we really love her recurring bits on the show including “Amber Says What?” as well as “Jokes Seth Can’t Tell” with Jenny Hagel — which serves as fuel for her own late-night talk show The Amber Ruffin Show, which debuts on Peacock Friday, September 25.

When Ruffin stopped by Deadline’s New Hollywood Podcast, we had a delightful time as the Nebraska native gave us a preview of what we can expect from her talk show and about her journey to becoming a comedian and improviser. She also demonstrated her skills when it came to the dying art of Signing Exact English — not American Sign Language, but Signing Exact Engish which is a whole different ball game. We covered lots of ground in our hour conversation including her love for Spanglish and her excitement for working with her writers’ team that includes Hagel as head writer and Demi Adejuyigbe, Shantira Jackson and Dewayne Perkins. We also talked about her ideal Verzuz battle — and her answer will surprise you.

Gallery: Will There Be a Season 2? Everything to Know About Netflix's 'Ratched' (US Weekly)

a person standing in front of a car: Ryan Murphy‘s world just expanded. The producer’s first Netflix series, Ratched, dropped on the streaming giant on Friday, September 18, introducing the world to an entirely new Nurse Ratched — a character featured in the 1975 drama One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The thrilling drama is dark, twisted and at times, very funny, following the life of Sarah Paulson‘s Ratched, a nurse who cons her way into on a job at a mental hospital. It doesn’t take long for her dark past to be revealed. The actress, 45, who has worked with Murphy for years on American Horror Story and American Crime Story, actually didn’t get approached for the role at first. “My agent called and said, ‘Is Ryan not talking to you about Ratched?’ I was like, ‘No!’ I called him and he said, ‘I wasn’t sure if it was something you wanted to do. You spent all this time on American Horror Story playing a different character every season. I don’t know if you’re going to want to play the same character season after season,” the Emmy winner told Vogue. “And I was like, ‘I might! You could just have asked me.’ And then I thought, ‘Why would I want to face-plant in front of the whole world by taking on a character that was made famous by Louise Fletcher, who gives an Oscar-winning performance?’ It might be the craziest thing I’ve ever thought about doing and that made it too intriguing to pass up. I’m a glutton for punishment.” Cynthia Nixon, whose character falls in love with Paulson’s devilish nurse, felt the exact opposite. “I’d been hearing about the project for a while and that there were a number of characters that I might be right for. Then, Ryan approached me about playing Gwendolyn,” the 54-year-old said. “She is so ahead of her time. She’s a queer woman and someone who wants not just to be behind the scenes in politics, but also to eventually be the candidate herself. That’s a tall order in this period.” Despite her fears, the Glass star dove in and rewatched the film to start. Despite viewing Ratched as “heinous” the first time around, it was different upon rewatching. “I was looking for a way to get inside her head and I said, ‘This woman is a victim of a patriarchal infrastructure at this hospital.’ The question is would we have hated the character so much if a man was playing it?” she recalled. “We come up against our own expectations that a woman who is a nurse should be maternal and soft. If not, she’s a villain.” For more on Ratched, scroll through the gallery below.
