SNL's first "best-of" video is still one of the best
10 January 2002 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Belushi was a true original and is sorely missed. This is a video that every comedy fan needs to have in their collection. His comedic talent was astounding and it is great to see him in his heyday in the sketches like the Blues Brothers, the Little Chocolate Donuts Commercial, the Samurai, the Hulk, the rants on the News, etc. If I could pick the 10 best players in an "ultimate 1975-2001 SNL lineup" they would include Belushi, Eddie Murphy, Dana Carvey (the top 3 I think), Gilda Radner, Martin Short, Will Farrell, Adam Sandler, Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, and Billy Crystal. Also included would be pre-1984 Steve Martin as the host and Dennis Miller, Norm MacDonald, Tina Fey and Chevy Chase as quadruple-anchors for the news (ok that's 15). There are so many talents that spawned from the show, but Belushi's star shone brightly -- it's a shame he didn't stick around with us longer. Note: this was SNl's first "best-of" videos - I recall it being priced at a modest 19.95 for the Xmas season in 1985! Also, check out the Eddie Murphy one, another 10/10 video!
