SNL has been auditioning binders full of black females to join TV’s highest-rated late night show, and it has settled on stand-up comic and UCB vet Sasheer Zamata.
She’s pretty fucking hot.
This is SNL’s first female black cast member since the departure of half-Jewish Maya Rudolph five years ago.
I’d just like to point out that the uber-racist SNL has not employed an Asian male since the departure of Fred Armisen in 2012.
We’ll see her in action during the next new SNL on Jan. 18, hosted by Drake.
