Lorne Michaels and several writers were in Chicago last week scouting for new cast and writers.
Shelly's last night on mainstage has beem set for August 18th.
Here is a blurb from Time Out Chicago:
In the wee hours of the morning O’Brien informed Gossman that she’s been tapped to join the writing team for the venerable sketch comedy show and have her final performance at Second City on August 18. We can’t imagine the current Mainstage revue Spoiler Alert: Everybody Dies without Gossman’s outstanding contributions. Between her bit as a hapless and overbearing mom and a fully-improvised monologue based on accessories submitted by the audience, she’s one of the show’s driving forces and will be missed.Congrats again, Shelly!
