This coming season of Saturday Night Live will be missing a few greats, including Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis, and Bill Hader. But SNL has hired six new cast members, which is always exciting, since the show has always been pretty good at filling its ranks. Though you might not recognize the new cast members (comedians usually become famous during or after their stint on SNL), here are some videos that give you a feel for their comedy.
This cute Comedy Central-showcased comedian and CollegeHumor writer is adept at crude, earnest humor.
Bennett is best known for his AT&T commercials, but you should also check out his Youtube comedy group Good Neighbor.
Another member of Good Neighbor, Mooney has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Parks and Rec, and Sports Show with Norm MacDonald.
Wells has proven herself adept at impersonations on CollegeHumor and Cracked.
Perhaps the least well-known of the new cast, check out this Step Up parody if you have any doubts about Milhiser’s abilities.
O’Brien already writes for SNL, and he is an amazingly awkward host on the Youtube channel Seven Minutes in Heaven.
