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.

I had done my time.

Michaela Watkins

Michaela Watkins CRACKED.COM After her one season, Michaela Watkins described her firing from SNL in 2009 as a little rude. I thought that this was my big break. I thought that it was going well. I thought we were all having a good time, but then they didn't renew my contract the next year. Maybe I was delusional. I really wanted to go back. I would have been really happy if they'd had me for three seasons. I felt like that would have been a really nice time there, but they had me for one.

Не was fired, made the move, then In Living Color was can- celled 3 weeks later.

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.
