Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

Despite the show's core theme of live comedy, on a few rare occasions stand-up segments weren't truly "live", but broadcast on a 7-second tape-delay: 13 December 1975 (Richard Pryor), 15 November 1986 (Sam Kinison), and 12 May 1990 (Andrew Dice Clay), each time to allow censoring any "accidental" expletives.

Quotes

Medical Reporter: [singing] Everybody doesn't like something; but nobody doesn't like... orgasms. For years it was thought that there was only one type of orgasm; however, thanks to research and our new found friend Mr. G-Spot, scientists have been able to identify several different types of orgasms. For example, people who have sex in sports cars experience Four-on-the-Floorgasms. Women who have sex with a few good men have Marine Corpsgasms; while Lou Grant experienced Mary Tyler Mooregasms.

A noble effort, but...
18 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SNL hasn't been consistently funny for about 20 years or so. Of course the show will be occasionally funny - it happens, but not often enough. Loren Michaels tends to choose cast members who look like successful cast members from the past (anyone else notice?), trading off players' physical appearance for talent. He also has a policy of promoting writers from within who are just not able to carry the show. I'm talking about the Luke-warm comedy of Seth Meyers. Weekend Update is only mildly amusing on a good night. With the phenomenal talent pools in New York, Chicago, Toronto, and LA, Michaels could put together blockbuster ensembles, but that won't happen. Why? You'll have to ask Dr. Evil himself for the answer to that question.
