Brooks Wheelan Fired From 'SNL' But It Was TOTALLY Worth It for that Twitter Joke

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.

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.
