Claire Mulaney Hired to Write for 'SNL'

Saturday Night Live has started adding onto the writing staff for the show's 39th season, which is set to start up this fall. Claire Mulaney, a writer/performer out of Chicago, has just been hired to write for the long-running sketch show. She's the younger sister of standup John Mulaney, who has written for SNL since 2008 and is currently developing his self-titled sitcom, Mulaney, at Fox after NBC passed on it. Claire Mulaney is a Yale alum who performed on the school's longest-running improv team, The Yale Exit Players, before getting involved in Chicago's comedy scene after graduating. She currently plays on the iO Theater's Harold team Dogs and frequently performs at the Annoyance Theater. Mulaney is, so far, the first known new hire of the season as no casting/other writing additions have been announced yet.
