Jan Hooks Passed Away at 57

I'm a huge SNL fan, have watched every week for about as long as I can remember. The show has been on pretty much my entire life, and it's been a staple of my comedy viewing for about that long as well.

That's why I was deeply saddened to hear about the death of Jan Hooks. A really underrated comedic talent, she was one of the best parts of the show during her years. Contributed to some absolutely hilarious skits that will go down in memory for a very long time.

No word yet on how she died, official reports just say that she passed away.
