I was looking at Michael Che’s Instagram account this weekend because Che is my favorite thing about Saturday Night Live these days, aside from Cecily Strong, and I began to notice something take shape: Michael Che used to give former SNL featured player, Brooks Wheelan, an incredible amount of sh*t. At first I thought: Wow! Che is kind of being a dick to Wheelan.
However, the more incidences of it that I saw, the more I realized that these two guys must have been really good friends. After all, he would bust a guy’s balls that much if he wasn’t a good friend?
Then I started to feel sad because Brooks Wheelan got fired, and Michael Che probably lost a good friend on staff (Che was a writer there last season, before moving on to The Daily Show and then “Weekend Update”), and I bet they’d have made a good team.
So, here’s looking forward to an awesome Michael Che/Brooks Wheelan buddy cop movie in our futures. In the meantime, check out the incredibly amount of grief Che used to give Wheelan on Instagram.
