UCB’s Josh Patten Hired as a Writer at ‘SNL’


Josh Patten, UCB mainstay and recent focus of our Follow Friday feature, was just hired as a Weekend Update writer at SNL. If you’ve been following him on Twitter, this should not be a great surprise to you: the guy is a monster of a joke writer. Presumably more hires will be coming in the very near future, both in the writers room and in the cast, as the new season is set to premiere on September 15th — the wheels are definitely in motion. In any case, congrats to Josh!
