Subject: I watched Sasheer's stand-up special and it was surprisingly
In reply to: but would probably do really well in sitcoms or other 's message, "I'd probably say the same for Sasheer in recent years. Didn't really seem suited for sketch comedy" on 15:17:45 05/30/17 Tue

She had a lot of good material dealing with race and various social issues. I feel like if she had written more on the show she probably would have tried to insert some of that into her sketches (I think she tried with the Stranger Things sketch and the Wiz Live sketch; those are 2 she had a writing credit on).
Maybe SNL wanted to steer clear of anything that was too race-related; they also fired Natasha Rothwell after one season.
