The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

Andy Sam­berg has stunned fans by re­veal­ing he’s leav­ing hit US com­edy show Satur­day Night Live. The fun­ny­man, who is the brains be­hind the weekly show’s star-filled dig­i­tal short movies, has con­firmed re­ports sug­gest­ing he’ll be fol­low­ing Kris­ten Wiig, whose fi­nal SNL ap­pear­ance came dur­ing last month’s sea­son fi­nale. ‘‘It’s an in­cred­i­bly emo­tional and strange mo­ment in my life. Ob­vi­ously, it’s not a huge shock, but I did of­fi­cially de­cide not to come back . . . (It was) one of the hard­est de­ci­sions I’ve ever made,’’ Sam­berg (pic­tured) tells the New York Times. Sam­berg spent seven sea­sons on the show and is per­haps best re­mem­bered for his com­edy video with Justin Tim­ber­lake. Satur­days, 10.30pm, The Com­edy Chan­nel.
