Sorry! No More Gilly Or Penelope Sketches For Kristen Wiig on SNL

| Filed under: TV News

She's tired of them. You're tired of them. We're tired of them.

Obviously, it's time.

In her recent interview with Time Magazine, Kristen Wiig revealed that she is ready to retire two of her most notable (and rather annoying) characters on SNL: Gilly and Penelope.

Refresher: Gilly is the mischievous frizz-ball kiddie that loves causing trouble and Penelope, the endless one-upper.

It's not like we didn't find these characters HIGHlarious at the time…but it's been AWHILE and we're ready for new material - and so is Kristen. In fact, she was smart enough to see that the characters have run their course; she didn't need Lorne Michaels to retire them for her.

Perhaps, its for this reason and so many others, that Lorne named her one of the "top three or four performers all-time" on SNL.

That's quite a compliment…one we agree she deserves!

    Gilly was a horrible creation, I'm amazed Lorne Green allowed it on the show, Penelope wasn't as bad, as least we all know a pretentious girl like her, but who thinks a character like that is funny is beyond me

    Nothing she does is funny. Annoying always…

  3. Low says – reply to this

    i think kristen is very talented, but gilly was horrible. only keenan was funny in those sketches. penelope not so bad, and had a bit of a point.
    either one is no 'matt foley".
    i think bill heder's characters are much better. (vinnie vedici or stefon)

    OMG…is he retarded?
    Kristin Wiig is the worst thing to ever happen to SNL. SHe is so unfunny and talentless I fast forward every skit she is in. Thank GOD they stopped putting her in ever goddamn skit.

    The only thing that I find her funny in is where she has those baby arms and giant forehead. Everything else is blah.

    Gilly hasn't been on the show since Will Forte left, so I don't know why that one was even an issue.

    THANK GOD! These were two of the worse characters EVER!

    I like the "just kidding" character she does

    every character she does, and every voice she uses is the SAME DAMN THING.

    She isn't funny, and they need some new talent on the show. Stop relying on her for laughs, she is useless.

    Thank goodness! SNL has gone soooo far downhill in the last 5 years or so. All the real talent is no longer on there.
