Hi everyone. I spent the last three years writing a book and it’s coming out April 14. It’s called “A Very Punchable Face” based on the fact that several of my close friends have told me, “You have a very punchable face.” I’m really excited about the book and I hope you’ll read it. I promise it’s a quick read and largely non-inspiring. Just stories from my life and from SNL that I thought were funny or uniquely disturbing. And I get physically injured or maimed in many of the chapters which I’ve discovered is how people most want to see me. There’s a link in my bio if you’d like to pre-order the book. It’s the perfect gift for birthdays, holidays, weddings, divorces, first communions, and hostage situations gone awry.
As per Colin he has plans to extend himself with better and bigger ideas. After completing his graduation from Harvard University in 2005, Colin was placed in “SNL” and had been for about 15 years where he was promoted from writer to chief writer and also as the “member of the show’s cast.”

It would be a shame to see the end of the Colin Jost/Michael Che era on SNL's Weekend Update. They're a definite power couple. However, he may want to take his career in a different direction once he and ScarJo get hitched. Either way…all the best to him.🙂

Further, he has been co-anchoring “Weekend Updates” from 2014. SNL will be back from February 29th with anchor John Mulaney and the guest David Byrne at 11.30 p.m ET/ PT on Global.
Apart from this Daniel Craig will also be back with the singer “The Weeknd” on Arch 7th.
“A Very Punchable Face” will go off air after April 14th, but reports it is not true.
Moreover, it is usual for SNL to have rumors on replacing casts every year this time and Colin’s departure is not official and so, it is yet to be confirmed.
