Jenny Slate & Nasim Pedrad: 'SNL' Adds Two Cast Members

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK — "Saturday Night Live" will begin its fall season with two new cast members.

A person close to the show confirmed that Jenny Slate and Nasim Pedrad (NAH'-seem PEH'-drad) have joined the show. The person requested anonymity because NBC has not made an official announcement.

Both comedians have connections to the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, the New York- and Los Angeles-based comedy theater that also birthed the careers of numerous "SNL" cast members.

Slate previously partnered with Gabe Liedman for the comedy show "Gabe & Jenny." Pedrad, born in Tehran, Iran, previously had a one-woman show, "Me, Myself & Iran."

"SNL" premieres Sept. 26.
