Not a huge surprise. I had his odds of being fired at 2-1 two months ago. In fact, my spellcheck still hadn’t learned whether it was one Es or two Es, and my spellcheck knows how to spell Dave Kneebone, a producer on Nathan for You.
Anyway, totally worth it for this joke.
Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke… FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!— Brooks Wheelan (@brookswheelan) July 14, 2014
According to my calculations, announcements on John Milhiser and Noel Wells will probably be next.
Anyway, we’ll always have that game-show appearance where you played yourself, Brooks, and of course your Weekend Update segment, which sounded like a bit you had been working on all through high school and college.
