Sasheer Zamata: 'Saturday Night Live' Casts a Black Female Comedian!
The sketch comedy series has not had a female black performer on the show since Maya Rudolph left the cast five years ago and there has been much controversy over the absence of diversity on the show.
Sasheer‘s name has reportedly floated around the SNL casting office in the past and she was one of twelve ladies who tested for the position last month on the stage at Rockefeller Center. She will be one of the featured performers on the show this season.
