Who's your favorite SNL comic of all-time?

Easy question....Who's your favorite SNL comic of all-time? From the old days to the new (I quit watching myself in the 90s).

My vote has to go to Dennis Miller.

Eddie Murphy.

My favorite skit of all time is "Cowbell" with Christopher Walken.

That would be a very, very close number 2. I think Bill Murray is one of my favorite all-time movie comic actors (its that dry humor of his). Life Aquatic is one of my favorite all-time movies now....dry humor at its best.

For Weekend Update? Miller, with Norm McDonald a close second, simply because neither of them gave a crap about the rest of the show.

Funniest sketch? The Chris Farley v Patrick Swayze Chippendale's dance off.

Funniest fake commercial? Farley and Sandler's housesitting gig for Schmitt's Gay Beer


Or maybe not. Lots of other funny moments, but there is so much dreck to sit through to find it.

character or cast member?

phil hartman ranks up there for me. he was one of the most versatile cast members. ditto for steve martin. akroyd was great for his subtle comedic genious.

characters....just off the top of my head,

darrell hammond as sean connery
norm macdonald as burt reynolds

Ackroyd was in some of the funniest skits of all time: the Bass-o-Matic, the Consumer Watch bit with Candice Bergen ("Bag 'o Glass"), half of the Wild 'n' Crazy Guys with Steve Martin.

One of my favorite skits of all-time was John Belushi as the tv-crazed man. His wife got sick of him ALWAYS watching TVs...she would bust them up....he had them stashed everywhere...in cabinets, etc... When all done, she left, he reaches inside a big smashed TV and pulls out a small working tv from inside.

John Belushi. Its truly unfair to try and pick out just one thing he did, but one of my personal favorite characters he did is Joe Cocker.

That took some nads, since Cocker was standing next to him.

Weird piece of trivia for you, Steve Martin was never a cast member on SNL. He is hilarious though.

I started watching in the 90's. No one on that show makes me laugh as hard as Will Ferrell. My top 5:

1. Will Ferrell
2. Mike Meyers
3. Dana Carvey
4. Phil Hartman
5. Billy Crystal

These 5 could really be in any order.

I don't know about cast members, but Christopher Walken is my favorite host. Walken's Life Raft skit is hilarious--I can't find any video, but here's the transcript:

Life Raft

Oh, Jack Handy's stuff is good, too.
