New SNL cast member Aidy Bryant took front and center stage over the weekend in the sketch comedy show's mock-presidential debate as moderator and CNN correspondent Candy Crowley.
Bryant was signed onto SNL in September along with fellow Second City alum Tim Robinson. (Fair warning: Bryant now works in New York City, but because she grew up in Phoenix, we're still claiming her as our own.)
On Saturday, Bryant moderated the town hall debate between Jay Pharoah as Barack Obama, Jason Sudeikis as Mitt Romney, and other cast members as the shaky and fumbling town hall audience, including host Tom Hanks.
