One of the three Saturday Night Live cast members who lost their jobs this week took the news with, well, humor.
Brooks Wheelan sent out the following Tweet after learning he wouldn’t be returning to the show for a second season.
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!

Joining Whelan on the show’s “one and done” list are fellow freshman Noel Wells and John Milhiser, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The sketch show also will be losing Nasim Pedrad after five seasons. Pedrad has a gig lined up with a new Fox sitcom Mulaney.
