Jenny Slate Joins SNL!

It’s official: after rumors were a’swirlin more than the inside of a frozen yogurt factory, Jenny Slate – of Gabe & Jenny, Dead Millionaire, and Big Terrific – has been hired as the newest cast member on some television program titled Saturday Night Live!

That’s one small step for New York comedy, one giant leap for Jenny Slate.

Oh, and Chicago transplant Hannibal Burress and UCB performer Christine Nangle will both be writing for the show, too. Friends are fun!
