Look, we love Kenan Thompson, we love Saturday Night Live, and we love funny women, so naturally we were a bit disappointed when Thompson told TV Guide this week that the reason there aren’t any black female performers on SNL was because “in auditions, they just never find ones that are ready.”

Maybe this is a problem with SNL‘s casting net, because even without sitting through months of showcases in L.A., NYC and Chicago, we were able to find five black women who are totally ready to be “Not Ready For Prime Time Players.”

1) Michelle Buteau

Finally, Best Week Ever‘s very own Michelle Buteau has been making us laugh week after week here on VH1, but she also performs stand up all over the country. Don’t you think we need some more “Panties On/Panties Off” action on Saturday Night Live? The answer is yes. Yes, we do.
