Fred Armisen has confirmed he has left Saturday Night Live after 11 years.
Armisen dispelled any doubt about his exit in an interview posted Monday by comedy website Splitsider.
SNL often doesn’t announce its cast changes, but the show’s season finale in May concluded with a farewell for Armisen and Bill Hader.
Armisen says he felt as though his departure from SNL was obvious considering in his last sketch he sang It’s been a lovely night with you as British punk rock character Ian Rubbish.
Armisen says he left partly because the IFC sketch show Portlandia was demanding more time and because it felt like a very healthy, good time to do it.
