What to know about Michael Che’s love life

While appearing on stage in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Michael quipped to the audience: “This is my last year. You know my tie is a clip-on, right?”

“What man wears a clip-on tie to work for eight years — that’s embarrassing.”

However, it was revealed that the bit was a part of his stand-up act and that he was not actually leaving.

He took to Instagram to diffuse the rumors and said: “To comedy fans; please stop telling reporters everything you hear at a comedy show. You’re spoiling the trick.”


On May 13, 2022, SNL was brought up during Michael’s interview with The New York Times.

He revealed during the interview: “My head has been at leaving for the past five seasons.”

“I do think that I’ve been here longer than I’ll be here.”

“This show is built for younger voices and, at some point, there’ll be something more exciting to watch at the halfway mark of the show than me and dumb Jost.”

Though he brought up his future departure from the series as a possibility, Michael did not confirm that he was leaving the show.

SNL executive Lorne Michaels followed up Michael’s interview and commented on the matter to the New York Times.

Lorne told the publication: “If I had my way, he’ll be here. And I don’t always get my way.”

“But when you have someone who’s the real thing, you want to hold on as long as you can.”

The sketch comedy staple is in its 47th season and is expected to conclude on Saturday, May 21.
