Michael Che Debates Leaving 'SNL,' Reveals He's Been Thinking About Leaving for Years

One of the SNL Weekend Update anchors, Michael Che, went viral a few months ago when he told a comedy show audience he planned to leave the variety show this year.

As the show plans to wrap its season this month, the 38-year-old comedian was asked if he’ll return.

Michael told the New York Times, “My head has been at leaving for the past five seasons. I do think that I’ve been here longer than I’ll be here. This show is built for younger voices and, at some point, there’ll be something more exciting to watch at the halfway mark of the show than me and dumb Jost.”

SNL head honcho Lorne Michaels was also asked if Michael might depart.

“If I had my way, he’ll be here,” Lorne said. “And I don’t always get my way. But when you have someone who’s the real thing, you want to hold on as long as you can.”
