He may not yet be a household name, but Brooks Wheelan is a "Saturday Night Live" cast member who had one hell of a year. In a video montage that splices together footage from one second of his day for 365 days, Wheelan shows how he went from being a stand-up comedian with an engineering day job in California last year to landing a writing position on "SNL" in New York. He was later added to the cast as a featured player, as well.
He also traveled all over the Northern Hemisphere, skateboarded in a lot of offices, and hung out with fellow "SNL" cast members in his new city. Set to an Arcade Fire soundtrack, his year looks pretty remarkable. But Wheelan plays that down: "If you only film one second out of your day and put it to music, it looks like your day was much cooler than it actually was."
Watch the video above for a year in the life of Wheelan.
