Elliott, Watkins join ‘SNL’ cast

Female comics added to 'Saturday Night Live'

“Saturday Night Live” has added two femmes to its troupe on the heels of Amy Poehler’s departure from the show last month.

Abby Elliott, the daughter of comedian Chris Elliott, has lent her voice to episodes of “King of the Hill” and ABC’s upcoming “The Goode Family.” She’s also performed with the Upright Citizens Brigade. Chris Elliott, known for his tenure on “Late Night with David Letterman,” also logged a year on “SNL” in the 1994-95 season.

Michaela Watkins has spent some time with the Groundlings and has numerous TV guest shots on her resume. Most recently she’s logged three episodes of CBS’ “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and an episode of Showtime’s “Californication.”

“SNL” exec producer Lorne Michaels told the New York Times on Wednesday that the show may add more cast members later this season.
