SNL Adds Two Women

Sketch-comedy show Saturday Night Live will have two new faces when its 35th season premieres September 26. An anonymous source revealed that Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre alumni Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad have joined the cast. The UCB comedy theater has also spawned the careers of other current SNL cast members Casey Wilson and Bobby Moynihan and was founded by former SNL actress Amy Poehler. Slate previously appeared with Gabe Liedman in the comedy show Gabe & Jenny while Pedrad, a native of Tehran, had a one-woman show entitled, Me, Myself & Iran.
