Michael Che just made comedy history- and television history.
The Saturday Night Live comic and writer, most known for hosting the Weekend Update sketch/show, had been tapped as SNL’s new co-head writer, along with his Weekend Update co-host Colin Jost.
Jost was a co-head writer for seasons 38, 39, and 40, while this is Che’s first time in the role.
He is the very first person of color to be a Saturday Night Live head writer.
He first joined the show in 2013.
