Brooks Wheelan Says He Was Fired From 'SNL'

Lorne Michaels is a man that knows what he wants in his shows. It's his way or the highway and, apparently, it's the highway for Brooks Wheelan. The LA comic tweeted late Saturday night that he was let go after only one season.

He tweeted: "Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke… FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!" Wheelan became a writer on SNL last August and was bumped up to featured player. However, he never saw much screen time. Most of his appearances were on Weekend Update and he did have an impresion or two but that's about it.
