After losing Kristin Wiig, Andy Samberg and Abby Elliott (and who knows what's happening with Jason Sudeikis), Saturday Night Live is on the verge of bringing in some new talent. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Aidy Bryant and Tim Robinson will close deals within the next week.
Here's what The Hollywood Reporter has to say about Bryant and Robinson:
Bryant is a Second City alum from Phoenix, Ariz., with a theater degree from Columbia College. With SNL's Vanessa Bayer, her sketch comedy group has performed at Chicago's Annoynance Theatre comedy club.
Detroit native Robinson, meanwhile, has a role in CBS' midseason Christopher Mintz-Plasse comedy Friend Me and has appeared in a handful of short films and as the lead in the BBC's Nice Day for a Welsh Wedding. He's also a Second City alum and an improv group active in Chicago's comedy circuit.Hop past the jump to check out some of Bryant's and Robinson's work.
Robinson is the guy reading the cue cards in the next short.
