15 'Saturday Night Live' Cast Members' Stories Of Being Fired

When I was in college, I got my first computer. I was fascinated with all the wonderful things you could do with a computer. I didn't enjoy this list of interesting facts, though. It was a long time before I found a way to make it fun. I enjoy this list of interesting facts much more. I have been making it for years and have learned a few things along the way. This is the most fun list of interesting facts that I have ever made. My hope is that you will enjoy reading and learning as much as I did making it. I enjoy this list so much that I have written several books about them. Each book covers one or more topics in great detail, then gives a summary. These are the perfect books for anyone who is easily bored, but wants to learn something new. If you have the patience for it, you can learn something truly amazing about the world. I recommend them if you like the list.

Horatio Sanz

Horatio Sanz CRACKED.COM But who's gonna break character with Jimmy?! When budget cuts hit SNL in 2006, some of the show's most established cast members (like Horatio Sanz) were abruptly asked to leave. Lorne Michaels said, Things like this are never pleasant. I made the decision to stick with the 20 episodes and cut everything back.

Variety

Jay Pharoah

Jay Pharoah CRACKED.COM Hired together, fired together. Jay Pharoah lasted the same number of seasons as Tarran Kil- lam before they were let go. In an interview, he said, You go where you're appreciated. They put people into boxes and what- ever they want you to do, they expect you to do. And I'm fiery. More like firedy. Sorry.

Laurie Metcalf

Laurie Metcalf CRACKED.COM Now that she's won multiple Emmys and Tonys, we can talk about her five-day stint as an SNL cast mem- ber. A single segment on one epi- sode in 1981 is all she got before the Writers Guild strike forced the sea- son to end early. She was not asked back the following year. Come on, there's no way her segment was that bad!

Vulture

Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Julia Louis-Dreyfus CRACKED.COM After Seinfeld and Veep, it's impossible to imagine her not having success on TV. Her stint on the show was from 1982 to 1985, and in a Sirius ХМ interview, she recalled being pretty miserable in a very dog-eat-dog environment. Her third season was that infamous 1985-86 season, and she was one of many who were not asked to return. Unjust! She also called the show very sexist back then.
