New SNL Cast Member!
Sasheer Zamata — the first black female “Saturday Night Live” cast member in 5 years — “works clean” as one of her colleagues put it to us … but she can also “play dirty” — as in dirty, dirty skits.
“SNL” made it official today, but we’ve been told they’ve been scouting Sasheer for several years. She was part of at least one other “SNL” showcase 2 years ago, when scouts from the show took notice. She posted pics last March of her backstage and in the offices at “SNL” … so there’s been some interest for a while.
