Taran Killam is saying goodbye to Saturday Night Live the only way he knows how — through the art of parody.
Last month, NBC confirmed that the veteran cast member wouldn’t be returning to the series, along with fellow fan-favorite Jay Pharoah.
Though he admitted he was “never given a reason why” his contract wasn’t renewed, Killam did make sure to say he had “no gripes” about being let go.
So how did the actor decide to officially say goodbye to the late night sketch series?? Why, with a spoof of the HBO docu-series Hard Knocks, of course!
Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, Taran shared a quick sketch titled Live Knocks: Saying Goodbye to SNL — which showed the vet packing up his dressing room, and included a shameless plug for his new film Brother Nature.
Liev Schreiber, who narrates Hard Knocks, commentates Killam’s exit as the funny man pulls down photos of costars Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. So sad!
