MADtv Vet Debra Wilson Talks New SNL Cast Member Sasheer Zamata

"Stop with the expectations!"

Veteran comic Debra Wilson, who starred on MADtv for 8 seasons, says Sasheer Zamata will do fine on “Saturday Night Live” telling Showbiz Tonight, “They hired her because she’s funny…and I think she is going to be amazing!”

Debra says “I think we need to stop with the expectations and have her just be what she’s gonna be…”
