‘SNL’ 46th Open star Jim Carrey to retire as team member

Following the initial debate between President Trump and Vice President Biden, SNL viewers couldn’t wait to see what the sketch series would do with the political scene.

Over the 2020 season, Saturday Night Live writers would often use the presidential campaigns as fodder for cold openings. The NBC series caught up with Carrey to play Biden and their own alum, Maya Rudolph, for his running mate, Kamala Harris. But, Vanity Fair argues that these opening sketches remain a “problem for the exhibition.”

Now, SNL trying something new; this week “they showed up beautifully into a new Joe Biden.” The tossing decision was a quick fix after Carrey bade farewell to the forward post Twitter.

“Even though my term was only 6 weeks,” Carrey wrote in his account, “I was delighted to be chosen as your SNL President… highest call of comedy. I would like to go on to know that Biden is the winner because I was against that *.

But, The Grinch star moving forward.

“… I am just one in a long line of proud fighting SNL Bidens! Carrey tweeted.
