Posts about Aidy Bryant
Not only does Aidy join Kate and Cecily on being the longest running female cast member in SNL history, she’s also the show’s plus size female cast member. Previously you had plus size men like John Belushi, Chris Farley, and Horatio Sanz, but in 2012, the show reached a milestone by hiring their first plus size woman cast member. I often look back at Paula Pell back in 1995 and wondered if she could’ve been the first but 17 years later, we got Aidy Bryant. She has been a delightful cast member, either impersonating Ted Cruz or Adele, or playing her characters Fats of Dyke and Fats, JAN KRAAAANE, a trend forecaster, Megan of Girlfriends Talk Show, and many more. It’s truly a monumental moment that is overlooked but I find it to be a special achievement. Hopefully her departure will so open the doors to new plus size female cast members to join. I wish Aidy Bryant luck in the future and where her career takes her next. Hopefully it will be back to host SNL in the near future. We will all miss you Lil’ Baby Aidy.
