List of the best current Saturday Night Live cast members,as ranked by fans and critics. SNL has been on for 39 glorious seasons. The show has been known for scooping up the most talented improv and comedy actors on the underground circuit and turning them into comedy superstars. Lastseason, many of the SNL cast members who were carrying the weight of the show,including Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, and Fred Armisen, left the cast and left plenty of room for newcomers to shine. The current cast of SNL is filled with newcomers who have yet to make a big name for themselves in sketch comedy. The present season has allowed these lesser known cast members to properly sparkle.


This list features long time cast members like head writer Seth Meyers and long-time sketch comedy veteran Taran Killam, as well as newer faces like Noel Wells and Aidy Bryant who prove themselves on a weekly basis.Not only is individual comedy prowess important, illustrating an ability to work as a comedy team puts some of these cast members among the best of the best.
