If you happened to notice something different about SNL’s Weekend Update, you can look to the new writer Drew Michael. Michaels addition to the writing team was just one of seven changes made between seasons. Michaels job however, is to focus on the material for the shows Weekend Update.
Michael’s has been an up and comer in the New York comedy scene. Landing a spot special on Comedy Central’s Half Hour earlier this year. Back in 2014 Michael’s landed a performance on AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live.
SNL has made major changes to the writing staff this past off season. Joanna Bradley, Anna Drezen, Kristen Bartlett, Julio Torres, and Nick Kocher were all added to the writing team. The new writers seemed to have paid off for NBC as the show had the highest premiere ratings since 2008.
