Saturday Night Love!
The cast of Saturday Night Live surprised funny man Jay Pharoah with a birthday bash following Saturday’s show in New York.
At Frames Bowling Lounge, cast members past and present came together to celebrate, including Jason Sudeikis, Kenan Thompson, Seth Myers, Bobby Moynihan, Vanessa Bayer, Taran Killam, Kate McKinnon, Nasim Pedrad and Cecily Strong.
“Jay was shocked when his closest friends and family belted out ‘SURPRISE!’ upon his arrival,” an onlooker tells PEOPLE. “His expression was priceless!”
The hilarious crew toasted to Pharoah, wishing him all the best in Frames’s private VIP room, with cocktails and beer.
