Saturday Night Live is getting a new, fresh face.

Jon Rudnitsky, a 25-year-old stand-up comedian from New Jersey, will join the cast of the NBC show for season 41, according to Variety.

NBC said in a statement that Rudnitsky, who appeared in the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal this year, will join the sketch comedy show as a featured player, NBC News reports.

Rudnitsky also retweeted a post by The Hollywood Reporter announcing the news. He will join current stars Leslie Jones, Kenan Thompson, Taran Killam and more.

The newbie built a following on YouTube with several satirical videos, including “House of Cards Junkie,” a parody of the Netflix original series House of Cards, and True Detective.

Season 41 of the long-running show will premiere on Oct. 3 with Miley Cyrus as the host. Former cast member Tracy Morgan is slated to return Oct. 17.
