‘SNL’ comic reveals fight to get clean

Funnyman Will Ferrell was just honored with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Sunday at the Kennedy Center, but his former “Saturday Night Live” colleague’s past battle with drugs is no laughing matter.

According to the New York Post, Hammond writes in God, If You’re Not Up There, I’m F--ked, “I kept a pint of Remy in my desk at work.”

He was so out of control that the entertainer says in 1998 he was taken in a straitjacket by police officers from NBC to a hospital.

After being released from rehab for alcohol and drug abuse just two years ago, Hammond writes, “I had the brilliant idea I should try crack.”

The Post writes that Hammond, who left the “SNL” cast in 2009, is now sober. His book is set to be released on Nov. 8.
