    • The SNL star best known for spoofing celebrities like Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Sean Connery revealed on CNN -- 'SNL's' Darrell Hammond reveals dark past of abuse -- that he was brutally abused by his mother through stabbings, beatings, and electric shocks throughout his childhood. This led to severe mental health issues, including self-injury. He revealed in the interview that he began to self-injure at the age of nineteen. The diagnoses thrown at him varied and included schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. He was put on sometimes up to seven medications at once which he says were "soul-killing" but also says that they gave him stability. Darrell says that he was medicated while performing on SNL and that acts of cutting took place backstage, also that one time he was led away in a straitjacket. With the publication of his book "God If You're Not Up There, I'm Fucked" Darrell has made his mental health troubles public and says that he's not hiding anymore. "I don't feel ashamed of falling down, because I got hit by a Mack truck," he said in the interview. "The fact is, I kept trying to get back up, and then I did."
