New York, NY – Kate McKinnon and Pete Davidson have announced that they are leaving NBCs Saturday Night Live to try something they’ve never tried before, comedy.
“It’s going to be difficult.” McKinnon explained. “On SNL I never made an attempt or was expected to be funny. My movies are also aggressively unfunny like Ghostbusters 2016 and The Spy Who Dumped Me. So, I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
“I tried to be funny one time on SNL.” Davidson acknowledged. “I said, ‘live from New York it’s Saturday Night Live!’ But I said it in a funny voice. It didn’t go well. Lorne (Michaels) told me to cut it out.”
Fans of the long running sketch show are concerned that with the departure of McKinnon and Davidson the show will move away from a leftist agenda in an attempt to be humorous.
“With diversity hires and a focus on inclusion, we can confirm that our show will continue to be unfunny.” SNL creator Lorne Michaels assured viewers. “We stopped hiring actors and writers based on merit years ago!”
As of this report NBC has renewed SNL forever in fear of being called racists and sexist.
