The premier source of sketch comedy and zanily quotable characters since 1975 has provided a wellspring of brilliant character actors and comedy stalwarts. Truly, what other club can boast John Billushi, Eddie Murphy, Chris Farley, and Will Ferrell? Yes, all of these legends of comedy saw their first national exposure on SNL as fresh-faced twenty-somethings hungry for success. And Lorne Michael had the good sense to exploit them all. But they still kick ass. They are surely among the funniest people ever. Which is more than Daniel Tosh can say. So get wild and crazy and don’t tell your church lady friends, here we go!

Conclusion

Simply, without Saturday Night Live, comedy would never have become such an advanced art form. As a launch pad for megastars, SNL is non-parallel. In its own right, the show has made us feel like our Saturday nights weren’t so desperately lonely. Well, maybe your Saturday nights. We always just taped it so we could watch it to ease our hangovers. So, maybe you’ve got nothing better to do, and you think we missed an essential jokester. Write about it below, and we’ll run it through the writer’s room. But first, here’s some other humorous folk you’d do well to familiarize yourselves with.
