Oh SNL! How many hours of delight have you provided me? With your Coneheads, your Churchlady, your Coffee Talk, your Cowbell, your Dick in a Box . . .
Dare I say, Saturday Night Live is America’s greatest contribution to the world of comedy. Yes. I dareth.
Although it’s not easy to catch clips of SNL on youtube (NBC are kinda sticklers about their product), you can watch clips and episodes on the official website here.
Thank you, SNL, for an afternoon of giggles, mock news and pop culture refreshment. Now if only I could get my hands on some tickets . . .
List of cast members (pretty damn impressive)
As of September 2012, the show has featured 132 cast members. The list below includes both featured and repertory players, but omits SNL writers and others who weren’t listed as cast members during the show’s credits. The dates given are those of the years they were on the show. Also noted on the chart is whether the cast member ever served as an episode’s host, appeared as the anchor of the “Weekend Update” segment (under any of its titles), or has been the subject of their own “Best Of” home video collection.
