Nigerian-American Comedian, Ego Nwodim Joins Saturday Night Live Cast

Meet Saturday Night Live newest cast member – Ego Nwodim!


Saturday Night Live just welcomed Nigerian-American comedian Ego Nwodim as its newest cast member.

The historic NBC late-night show also added four new writers to their roster: Alan Linic, Alison Gates, Eli Mandel, and Bowen Yang.

Nwodim has been a regular cast member at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles, where she hosted her one-woman show, “Great Black Women … and Then There’s Me.”

She graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in biology, and has played small roles in 2017’s “Singularity” and the streaming-video series “Galactic War Room.”

Longtime Saturday Night Live cast member Kenan Thompson was awarded his very first Emmy earlier this week for his role on the series.

Adam Driver is set to host the Season 44 premiere on September 29th, with Kanye West as the musical guest.
