Question by  tony (17)

Is the cast "Saturday Night Live" chosen solely through auditions?


Answer by  Binome (1975)

No, though auditions are part of it. Casting directors representing the show contact agents they know when there is an opening on the cast. The agents then try to find someone in the stable of talent they represent that would be a good fit and then get him/her an audition.

Some of the players are chosen through auditions, but many are selected through recommendations or based on their previous experience. Kenan Thompson has been doing sketch comedy his entire career.

No, the cast of Saturday Night Live is chosen by audition, by membership of The Groundlings comedy group and by the producers scouring the world of comedy for new talent.
