I’m sorry I fell asleep during SNL’s final show of the season. Even sadder still to learn that Bill Hader is leaving the cast. I know “Birds gotta fly and leave the nest”. Alas now it is Stefon’s turn and he will be missed.
Without question my favorite SNL character actor/comedian to come along in a long time has been Bill Hader. He executed well on all the characters he was cast to play. I particularly loved Stefon on Weekend Update. He kept us informed behind his mouth covered giggles about the hottest clubs in New York City. I never knew that the SNL comedy writer would change his lines just before he delivered them live which added to the hilarity of it all.
I also enjoy his characterization of crotchety news reporter Herb Welch. A non-politically correct personality in the age of political correctness.
