Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy has given his last speech.
Tonight’s SNL season finale, hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson with musical guest Katy Perry, will be Bayer’s last episode. She joins fellow veteran Bobby Moynihan, who is also departing SNL after nine seasons to star in CBS’ fall comedy Me, Myself & I. According to Deadline, who first reported the news, longtime cast member Kenan Thompson will be staying on the show.
Bayer bid a fond farewell to the series in an Instagram post on Saturday:
Among SNL‘s current female cast members, Bayer has the longest tenure, having joined the show back in 2010. She’s known for such characters as the aforementioned Jacob, Weekend Update child anchor Laura Parsons and, of course, her spot-on impression of Miley Cyrus.
