Saturday Night Live Facebook

Season 39 of “Saturday Night Live” premiered September 28 with six new cast members.  Tina Fey was the host and introduced the newbies by making them dance in gold shorts.

One of the members is from Iowa.  Brooks Wheelan (circled above) was born in Manchester in eastern Iowa and graduated from Dubuque’s Hempstead High School.  He graduated from the University of Iowa in 2009 with a biomedical engineering degree.

Before being hired as a writer and cast member of ‘SNL,’ Wheelan worked as a stand-up comedian in Los Angeles.  ”Comedy Central” included Wheelan in their top 10 comedians to watch last year.

 

 

Here’s the opening monologue from Saturday night’s show.

 

 

On a side note, the guy who stars in those cute A T & T commercials, Beck Bennett, is also a new cast member this season.
