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
Wheelan, a 27-year-old comedian from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was one of six new cast members who joined the show's 39th season during a major cast overhaul following the departures of veteran players Fred Armisen, Seth Meyers, Jason Sudeikis, and Bill Hader. The fate of the Wheelan's five fellow freshmen—Beck Bennett, Kyle Mooney, John Milhiser, Noël Wells, and Mike O'Brien—has not yet been determined.
NBC has declined to comment on the news.
