‘SNL’ Casts Two Chicagoans: Aidy Bryant and Tim Robinson


The Comics Comic is reporting that SNL has brought in Aidy Bryant and Tim Robinson to join the cast. They’re starting in time for the season’s premiere on September 15. Both are vets of the Chicago comedy scene: Second City, iO, Annoyance Theater, etc. Aidy was actually once part of a sketch group with Vanessa Bayer at the Annoyance, which is fun. Watch a few videos of the two below to get yourself acquainted. We’d be very surprised if this is it for new cast members; expect at least one other new female performer to be announced before the season kicks off.
