Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night Live‘s newest star: Chloe Troast!
The NBC sketch show confirmed on Wednesday, October 4, that Troast has been tapped to join the cast — which also includes longtime favorites Chloe Fineman, Bowen Yang and Kenan Thompson — for its upcoming 49th season.
Troast is set to make her debut when SNL returns on October 14. The season premiere will be hosted by Pete Davidson, who left the show in 2022 after eight seasons, with fellow New York City native Ice Spice as the musical guest.
While she may be a newbie in Studio 8H, Troast has been a fixture of the city’s comedy scene. Earlier this year, she performed at the Canadian comedy festival Just for Laughs and was dubbed one of their New Faces of Comedy.
