Chris Redd To Leave 'Saturday Night Live' After Five Seasons

He has an upcoming comedy special on HBO Max.

Saturday Night Live (SNL) veteran Chris Redd is leaving the long-running sketch show.

Variety reported that this season would be Redd’s last with the series. The comedian joined the sketch comedy series in 2017. He talked about his pending departure with the publication.

“Being a part of SNL has been the experience of a lifetime. Five years ago, I walked into 30 Rock, knowing that this was an amazing opportunity for growth. Now, with friends who have become family and memories I will cherish forever, I’m grateful to Lorne Michaels and to the entire SNL organization. From the bottom of my heart, I can’t thank you all enough.”

Redd was known for his impressive impressions of New York Mayor Eric Adams and gained popularity for his part in the Emmy award-winning “Come Back Barack,” whom he performed with Chance da Rapper and Kenan Thompson.

As of now, the 37-year-old St. Louis native has an upcoming comedy special that will air on HBO Max and a feature film, “Cyber Monday.”
