Fred Armisen Closes Out ‘SNL’ Run With Help from Indie Rock Royalty
Kim Gordon, Carrie Brownstein, J. Mascis and more join longtime cast member for one last song.

>Fred Armisen might not have officially announced his departure from Saturday Night Live, but last night’s final sketch seemed like a fitting farewell. (According to the New York Post, a source at NBC confirmed that Armisen would be moving on.) Drawing on his pre-SNL background in music, the multi-talented (and well-connected) comedian closed the show’s season finale in the guise of Ian Rubbish, the Thatcher-loving British rocker he introduced just over a month ago in the “History of Punk.”

This was just great.
