Colin never found his audience on snl, but he is not the worst ever.(Terry Sweeny, Aidy Bryant, Chris Kattan, Leslie Jones come to mind). He did an adequate job on Weekend Update. And is actually a brilliant stand-up and an accomplished writer. - kpopcraze

2 Chris Parnell Chris Parnell

He's never made me laugh even once. Even Chris Kattan at least had gay Hitler. - truckturner

Never funny and impressions were always awful.

The irony is his on Rick and Morty so... his got something going right? - htoutlaws2012

3 Cheri Oteri
4 Chris Kattan Chris Kattan Christopher Lee "Chris" Kattan is an American actor/comedian, best known for his work on Saturday Night Live and his role as Bob on the first four seasons of The Middle.
5 Ellen Cleghorne Ellen Cleghorne
6 Aidy Bryant Aidy Bryant

Zero acting ability, looks like she's in a 6th grade play. Something is off about her mannerisms. She could be a brilliant comedic writer, but she is distracting to watch because she seems to act very unnaturally.

7 Robert Downey Jr. Robert Downey Jr. Robert John Downey Jr. is an American actor. His career has included critical and popular success in his youth, followed by a period of substance abuse and legal troubles, and a resurgence of commercial success in middle age.
8 Kristen Wiig Kristen Wiig Kristen Carroll Wiig is an American actress, comedian, writer, and producer. She is known for her work on the NBC sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live, and films such as Bridesmaids, The Martian, and Ghostbusters.

Why is she on here. She’s hilarious. These other people like Parnell, Kattan, Quinn, Cleghorne etc. never had any great moments. She had like a thousand. He characters like The Target Lady, Penelope, And Shana were all hilarious and her Michele Bachmann is spot-on. She showed her dedication to the show by completing her contract and not leaving after Bridesmaids came out. That being said, she did kind of (unintentionally) hog the screen. But Bill Hader does that too, and like Wiig, is one of the greatest cast members of all time.

9 Adam Sandler Adam Sandler Adam Richard Sandler is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and film producer. After becoming a Saturday Night Live cast member, Sandler went on to star in many Hollywood feature films that combined have grossed over $2 billion at the box office.

How is he so low?

12 Colin Jost Colin Jost Colin Kelly Jost is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and writer for the TV program Saturday Night Live.

Jost is like a lab created generic white guy who can read lines just well enough to be Weekend Update host. He has zero personality and very little to offer. He's just another northeastern dude who went to an elite college and managed to get on SNL.

13 David Koechner David Koechner David Michael Koechner is an American character actor and comedian best known for playing roles such as Champ Kind in the Anchorman films and Todd Packer on NBC's The Office.

22 Janeane Garofalo  Janeane Garofalo Janeane Garofalo is an American film actress, stand-up comedian, liberal political activist, and writer.

Not actually a comedian, how did she even get on the show?

23 Sarah Silverman Sarah Silverman

Never has been and never will be remotely funny or talented.

Just not even a little bit funny- the reality is her whole schtick was that she was pretty, and now that she is old she is not even pretty any more. She tried to create some interest by doing a nude scene in a movie, but nobody even cared.

25 John Milhiser John Milhiser
26 Michael McKean Michael McKean
27 Jenny Slate  Jenny Slate

SNL just wasn't for her. She seemed to be bored and anxious all the time. Obvious child was a great movie and I think that's what she should be doing. Live T.V. just isn't for her and it makes me wonder how she was even a stand up/at an improv group before joining SNL.
