Maureen Holloway –
Saturday Night Live is cleaning house, and the last ones in are the first ones out. Yesterday, Brooks Whelan, a first-year cast member, announced that he was given the boot.
Now comes word that Noel Wells and John Milhiser are also leaving, as well as veteran player Nasim Pedrad, who’s been on the show for 5 seasons.
Pedrad actually has a new show starting in the fall on Fox called “Mulaney”, which is being produced by Lorne Michaels, so she’s fine, but the other three will be left to wander in the comedy wilderness. It’s a strange world when the real king of comedy is such a grim little man as Lorne Michael.
