Shane Gillis Makes First Stand-Up Apperance Since Being Fired From 'Saturday Night Live'

Shane Gillis is back on stage.

The comedian performed an 11-minute set at The Stand on Wednesday night (September 18) in New York City following his firing from Saturday Night Live days after being announced as a new addition to the cast due to his use of racist slurs.

“Everybody’s been like, you can’t say sh–t and not expect consequences. I’m fine with the consequences. I’m not arguing. F–ck it. But I do want everyone to know that I’ve been reading every one of my death threats in an Asian accent,” he said during the set.

“It’s been weird. Twitter has been f–king nuts. You try to stay off it when the whole f–-king country hates you. That’s not a fun feeling as a human. Especially when you never get to say your side at all.”

The audience reportedly gave him a warm greeting, clapping loudly and shouting his name multiple times.
