Michael Che Career

Che began doing stand-up comedy in 2009. He would regularly work several sets per night. Che appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman in 2012. Variety called Che one of “10 Comics to Watch” in 2013, while Rolling Stone named him one of “The 50 Funniest People.”

In 2013, Che joined Saturday Night Live as a writer, at first as a guest writer and soon after as regular writer. It was announced on April 28, 2014, that Che would join The Daily Show in June as a correspondent. He made his onscreen debut on June 4, 2014 as a Daily Show correspondent.

Although he appeared in only nine segments during his brief time on the show, Che was lauded by TV Guide for his work, in particular “Race/Off: Live From Somewhere”, in which in response to the 2014 Ferguson protests, he continuously changed the location from where he was reporting his remote segment (with each change in location accompanied by a background change via the green screen), in order to ostensibly find a place where a black man would not be harassed by police officers, ultimately going into outer space. These are regarded by TV Guide as his signature segments on the program.

Colin Jost and Michael Che

Che was named on September 11, 2014, to take over for Cecily Strong as the Weekend Update anchor for the 40th season of SNL together with Colin Jost. He is the first African-American co-anchor in the history of Weekend Update. During his first two seasons Che primarily hosted Weekend Update, while rarely appearing in any sketches.

During his third season, Jay Pharoah left the show and Che was promoted to the main cast. This left Che and Kenan Thompson as the only male African-American cast members until Che’s fourth season, when Chris Redd was hired by SNL, bringing the number of African-American male cast members to three. Che appeared in the 2014 movie Top Five, appearing as one of Chris Rock’s character’s friends. Che was named in December 2017 as the co-head writer of Saturday Night Live. He co-hosted the Emmy Awards with Colin Jost on September 17, 2018.
