Luke Null out after one season on Saturday Night Live

Of the three new cast members to join Saturday Night Live last year, two of them made lasting impressions and successfully launched new characters on the long-running late-night variety showcase during season 43.

So it should come as no surprise to anyone watching, then, that the third won’t be coming back for a sophomore season.

Luke Null is one and done with SNL.

Vulture reported it first.

Null, a Cincinnati native, was a Chicago-based musical comedian and improviser at iO Chicago. And he’s back in the Windy City already.

Null will be performing Thursday at iO, Friday at Lincoln Lodge, and Saturday at Soho House.

Here was one sketch from the past season that did put Null front and center:
