    Three New Comedians Join SNL Cast As Will Forte Departs

    Saturday Night Live is approaching its 36th season. Earlier this week, Will Forte announced he would leave SNL after eight years with the program. SNL producer Lorne Michaels was recently in Chicago in early August to scout for talent. Paul Brittain and Vanessa Bayer were among four Chicago actors who were flown to New York for a second round of auditions. Multiple sources are now confirming three new comics will join the late night variety show including: Paul Brittain, Vanessa Bayer and Taran Killiam. Brittain is a Chicago-based improviser and sketch comedian. He also has previous experience with NBC as part of the syndicated Sports Action Team. Bayer is a comedian from Cleveland who has also performed around Chicago at iO Chicago, Second City and the Annoyance Theatre. Killam, who has the most credits of the three, has appeared in the sitcoms How I Met Your Mother and Scrubs. He has also appeared on MAD-TV and Nick Cannon's Wild 'N Out. He additionally appeared in the ABC pilot Freshman, which did not get picked up for a series run.
