Kenan Thompson Feels Black Female Comedians Aren’t Ready For SNL

Kenan Thompson

Saturday Night Live recently kicked off it’s 39th season with an all white cast of 6 members, 5 men and 1 woman.

This decision comes as no surprise as this marks the 6th season in a row that the comedy show failed to hire a black female. Meanwhile comedians like Kenan Thompson have no problem cross-dressing to portray black actresses.

While many may feel it’s time for SNL to give black female comedians a chance, funny man Thompson disagrees. “They just never find ones that are ready,” the actor told TVGuide. Kenan is 1 of 3 black cast members in the 16 member skit show, and after 38 years, the show hired only 4 women.

Vixens, what female comedians do you think should be on SNL?
