Yep, the sketch comedy staple has finally hired it’s first black head writer. Congratulations to Michael Che for this major accomplishment!

To put this into perspective, the show has been around for 43 seasons…

Che came to the show in 2013 and began hosting the “Weekly Update” with co-host Colin Jost in 2014. He also appears in a skit every once in a while. Check out his “Liberal White Woman” skit below.

All we can say is… It’s about time! We’re so proud of you Michael! Keep making big moves!
