By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | January 6, 2014 | Comments ()


Her name is Sasheer Zamata and the now former Upright Citizen’s Brigade member (NYC chapter) will debut on Saturday night Live with the winter premiere on January 18th. The new featured cast member will be the first black female cast member since Maya Rudolph left, and the first black female hire in seven years.

Zamata has a webseries called Pursuit of Sexiness. Here’s a stand-up act of hers from April.

Well, good. Controversy settled, right? We can all move on with our lives.
