And it's just so bittersweet!
Saturday Night Live is an institution with members coming and going, but it's such an exclusive staple in the comedy world, the bond every cast-member shares must be beyond comprehension.
We wouldn't even be surprised if they did special traditions every Saturday night after the show!! Ha!
"It just takes time. It's really sad when you first leave because it's such a wonderful experience that it's weird once the show starts up again and you're not on it. It's really, really hard for the first season, but especially until Christmas. It's really hard to bring yourself to watch the show. But at the same time, you are rooting for your friends on the show so you do watch it."
Sigh.. well WE have to mourn them too!
