Colin wrote that he’s “making ready mentally to depart SNL within the close to future” in his new memoir, A Very Punchable Face.
“It simply felt proper as I used to be writing,” he later defined to The Washington Publish. “I feel what I wished to open up about was simply that worry of leaving and the worry of letting go of one thing that has been so essential in my life.”
“It’s scary occupied with leaving,” he added. “I assume, on some degree, I wanted to face that or give it some thought, and that’s how I ended up there. It wasn’t actually with a selected date in thoughts or a timeline in thoughts. It actually was the emotional strategy of occupied with it.”
However Colin downplayed his eventual SNL departure throughout an Oct. 15 look on The Ellen DeGeneres Present.
“I don’t have an actual timeline, I simply meant like I began to doubtlessly psychologically brace for the idea of leaving, which I hadn’t actually achieved,” he informed Ellen. “I don’t actually know. Definitely, quarantine makes you recognize having any job. And [I’m] very a lot appreciating having associates you get to work with and revel in seeing.”
