Trivia

Alan Zweibel came up with the idea for the Lord and Lady Douchebag sketch, but couldn't figure out a way to make it work. He allowed Al Franken and Tom Davis to take a stab at it and James Downey also contributed. Franken and Davis first performed the sketch in July 1977 at Dudley Riggs' Seven Corners in Minneapolis. It was finally performed on air as the first sketch of the final show of the fifth season, which most of the cast and crew believed would be the end of the series. See more »
