Murphy & Murray...tied for first.

Farley and Ferrel second place, tied.

Gilda R. : honourable mention as the straightest comic ever seen. She never broke character. Awesome woman in the tradition of C. Burnett and L. Ball.




I base my answers on how much they made the other cast members crack or forget a line.

I'd say Murhpy and Murray as well, but John Belushi gets my 2nd place vote. He was an hysterical nutcase who seemed not to know the meaning of the word "inhibition".

Of course, I don't think I've watched a single episode since the 80's.

Funniest ... John Belushi, hands down. Ackroyd gets honorable mention, especially with the Bass-o-matic, and Julia Child impersonation .... classic!

I highly recommend Live From New York for every SNL fan. It's basically an oral history of the show. Some things that may or may not surprise you: everybody loved Gilda, everybody hated Chevy Chase, and everybody was really sad but not that suprised when Belushi OD'd.

I'm aging myself as usual, but the first year of SNL was pure magic. It was so different than anything else we had to watch it.

Gilda Radner always cracked me up. How could you not love Roseanne Rosannadanna?

On the opposite end we have Andy Kauffman. While he was awesome, in my opinion, he had little to do with the show.

Although, I must say, none of the recent SNL shows I've seen even compare to his crappy skits. Thats why I haven't seen a SNL show in at least 2 years. At least not the new ones.

No, it really aired--I think the youtube version is uncensored, though.

It became a hit with a couple friends of mine at the hospital, and then one day Justin Timberlake comes to visit. My friend Ian actually met JT and got to chat with him... A brief transcript:

Ian: "You know, Justin, I have to say that the **** in a box helps get me through the day."

Justin Timberlake: "Uh, I'm not sure how to take that."



But just in case you didn't see it, this is one of the funniest SNL skits in years:

Andy Kaufman was never more than a guest on the show. I thought he was really funny. I haven't seen all of his appearances but the "Mighty Mouse" bit is hilarious.

Oh yeah, **** in a box is hysterical.

Sort of off topic, but in the pre WB/FCC crackdown era of mad TV I think they fully out did SNL. Things like the woodshop with Will Sasso, the Kenny Rogers bits, and a lot of real random crap. They managed to do it consistently.
