The Three Newest Additions To ‘Saturday Night Live,’ Tim Robinson, Aidy Bryant & Cecily Strong

Three new cast members are joining Kate Mckinnon (introduced April 7th, hilariously portrayed Helga Handler) on Saturday Night Live‘s season 38 premiering September 15th.

Chicago comedians Aidy Bryant and Tim Robinson (pictured left) and Cecily Strong (below) have big shoes to fill.

With Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Abby Elliott (Paul Brittain too, but who cares) absent, there’s always the possibility of remaining funny people like Vanessa Bayer, Bobby Moynihan, and Nasim Pedrad getting more screen time. 

Screen time that will be shared with the mysterious newcomers Bryant, Strong and Robinson.

The Comics Comic reports that Tim Robinson and Aidy Bryant are semi-experienced stand-up comedians and that Bryant once did sketch comedy with Vanessa Bayer at The Annoyance.

Strong has toured with Second City’s Company (the other two are also alums), doing improv and sketch comedy.
