Comedians thrown into lively mix
sketch show Saturday Night Live adds three new performers for the upcoming season following the departures of Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg (pictured). Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant and Tim Robinson join SNL for its 38th season. Strong comes from Chicago improv theatre Second City. Bryant hails from the iO Theater in Chicago, and Robinson is an alumnus of Second City. It’s a period of transition for SNL, which enters a new season without Samberg, Wiig or Abby Elliott. Jason Sudeikis is also likely to go.
