New Female Cast Members Nasim Pedrad and Jenny Slate Join Saturday Night Live

Meet the New Female Faces on SNL!

There are going to be some funny new mugs when Saturday Night Live premieres later this month: comedians Nasim Pedrad and Jenny Slate. The two women will be welcome additions, since this will be the first full season without Amy Poehler. Relatively unknown, Pedrad had a role on ER, and Slate has been on Important Things With Demetri Martin.

Last year's new girls were Abby Elliott and Michaela Watkins, who held their own among heavyweights like Kristin Wiig and Bill Hader, thanks in part to killer Angelina Jolie and Hoda Kotb impressions, respectively.

I can't wait to see what this fresh blood will bring in — the show comes back Sept. 26 with Megan Fox hosting.

I think this show has been dead for years - no one on that show has any class or any kind of smart comedy; and I'm sick of people thinking Tina Fey is talented - she's not!

Interesting. I don't find Jenny Slate to be very funny, honestly. I hope she'll change my mind.
