Damon Wayans got himself fired from SNL by sabotaging a sketch because they were not letting him do the material he wanted to do.

Damon Wayans got himself fired from SNL by sabotaging a sketch because they were not letting him do the material he wanted to do.


"They had me in scenes where I would just hold a spear," Wayans later recalled. "I'm like, 'I'm not doing that. My mother's going to watch this show.' No lines! Just holding the spear in a thong. I'm like, 'I can't do this.' I said, 'Y'all need to hire an extra for this.' And so they told me, 'You're not a team player.' I said, 'No, I'm just not a slave.'

I imagine Robert Townsend didn't have to struggle to come up with material for "Hollywood Shuffle"

Yup, misleading article title, only Wayans was fired a true list of terminated players is:

Wayans
Charles Rocket
Anthony Michael Hall
Robert Downey Junior

Chris Rock wasn't fired, he bailed to do In Living Color.

Cracked's stupid listicle even says so, yet they included him on the list anyway.

Was Abby Elliott actually canned for saying "f*ck" or was it more a passive "you're not going to do anything of interest" after that?

/ anyway she was the third generation of the family to have appeared on the show

In that line of work, its the same thing.  Even those guys who the article is talking about, use the word, 'fired'.

Both Rocket and Slate  dropped F bombs. Slate did in her first appearance, she herself has said in interviews that she didn't return for a second season because she wasn't a "right fit" (whatever the hell that means in Lorne-speak).
From every story and recollection from former cast members SNL sounds like clicky high school overseen by a geriatric asshole.

Totally agree with him on that one.

It is crazy that SNL is still struggling to serve its women and POC performers.  MadTV and In Living Color had absolutely legendary performers, and those shows were on 20-30 years ago at this point.

Norm, yes.

Rock got fired?

Sarah Silverman, sure.  Although she hadn't well developed her shtick that early.

Sandler got fired?

Farley got fired?

Julia Louis-Dreyfus?  Meh.  It look a lotta years and better writing to develop her talent.

In the late 90s networks did try it. Mad TV lasted awhile and Howard Stern's show didn't. Also you say that like it's easy to go up against one of the longest running TV shows that's probably as popular as it's ever been.

No, it's changed a lot in the last several years, just in a downward direction.

I found out recently that Jim Downey was fired (because of the OJ jokes) and Norm said, "If Jim goes I go too." According to Downey anyway.

Also, people don't watch live network TV anymore.  The pie you're slicing from is much smaller.  Even SNL disproportionately skews towards YouTube reposting and Peacock streaming for people to see their content now.

Anyone who refers to Chris Farley as "One of the most talented and iconic performers to ever grace the soundstage of 30 Rock" and "One of the greatest comedic actors of all time" has no business writing about comedy.
