Trump is right: SNL is unfunny, cast full of generic nobodies. This show used to have Bill Murray and John Belushi at the same time.

Rodney Dangerfield is my grandpa, John Belushi is my uncle, Chevy Chase is my dad, and I am Bill Murray.
I remember it well. My favorite show as a young kid. I would skip going to parties to stay home on Saturday night to see the show. It taught me so much about comedy but also about what was going on in the world through the weekend update news reports. So funny and it was educational especially for a young girl. My favorites were Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, that's about the whole cast, LOL!
Met the SNL cast in 1978 when I had a friend in high school who's father was the head camerman on the set. We went to the "King Tut" show with Steve Martin. I have Bill Murray's and John Belushi's autograph!!

First to introduce John Belushi, Bill Murray, Eddie Murphy, Will Ferrell & more live on before anyone knew them.. RIP Don Pardo.
Well, now that you've read about the sublime, here comes the ridiculous: I meet John Belushi at the Saturday Night Live Cast Party I’m sitting in Carla N’s apartment literally like 20 minutes after arriving in New York on the train from LA, sitting in her little walk-up in Greenwich Village, and the phone rings... It’s an animated conversation. She turns to me and says “Do you want to go see ‘Saturday Night Live’ tonight? We can go for free; my friend is doing an internship with the show and can get us in.” “Are you kidding? Of course I want to go!” A few hours later we got off the subway and walked to the NBC studios in Rockefeller Plaza. We had tickets waiting for us I guess... Or we’d met her friend out on the street... And of course we sat through the show. The taping... We were there in the theater, the one I’d seen on TV quite a few times. Don Pardo was the MC. He warmed up the crowd. Elliot Gould was the guest host. All the usual pranksters, Akroyd, Belushi, Bill Murray, Gilda ...
Bill Murray bums a smoke from friend & fellow SNLer John Belushi on the set of John Landis' THE Blues Brothers.
I know most of you think of me as a John Belushi type of guy, but I've always though of myself as a slightly more goofy Bill Murray.
Watching "A Tribute to Don Rickels" on Spike TV. HilArious stuff. When things were funny and you didn't have to be politically correct and made fun of all people. Many comedians of color have said he is one of the greats. Gets me thinking about some recent news events: shootings, protests and etc... Growing up when I did watching comics like Don't Rickels, Richard Pryor, Johnny Carson, Bill Cosby, Sam Kinneson and others, watching westerns and movies like Porkys, Revenge of the Nerds, anything with Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Jim Belushi and other funny men and women. And yet I never had any desire to shoot and kill people, take people out, cause violence to others, or any number of things people do today because they can't handle things in their lives. I know that I have issues in my life, and don't always make the right decisions, but I do know I have a saviour and Lord in my life that sees through the all the clutter and junk and loves for who I am. Maybe if we (the Church) was more loving ...

I don't think John Belushi, Dan Akroyd, and Bill Murray could be wrong.
Bill Murray is my spirit animal during the week and John Belushi on the weekends
Any good 80′s movie has one of the following things: John Belushi, Bill Murray, John Cusack, or some kind of boat /jet ski chase / race.
If you think Bill Murray has been pretty room temp about the passing of Harold Ramis, just remember how he eulogized John Belushi.
More Harold Ramis Trivia! Did you know Ghostbusters was originally intended to be another buddy movie with Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi but Belushi died before the movie was shot, so they re-wrote the part for Bill Murray.
Tonight the world lost one of it's quietest and most influential stars of the 80's movie world. A genre shaping, schedule busting, expectation shattering comedic powerhouse who wrote amazing scripts, had the foresight to cast great talent and the humility to let them create within his framework, which as an artist is a hard thing to do (build a world and then let someone else paint the walls). He co-wrote Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters as well as many more from the 80's through to modern times, helped create the legendary iconic status of John Belushi and Bill Murray, and kept Dan Aykroyd in crystal skulls for his weird vodka. He directed one of my favorite movies of ALL TIME Groundhog Day where a horrible excuse of a human being Bill Murray (he plays that role a lot) is forced to relive a terrible day in a lame small town until he finds a way to connect to the world again. it's a lot sweeter than the previews and the initial story make it out to be and it's a story worth watching. Haro . ...
Harold Ramis age 69 the famous actor of Ghostbusters and writer and producer of many funny movies has died on 2/24/2014. He passed away from autoimmune vasculitis which is a product of Lupus. I have the same condition that is destroying the tissues of my legs at this time. It is being fought very aggressively in my case and I am sure it was in his case as well. He passed from a blood clot formed by the problem. Which proves no matter how much blood thinner a patient is on they will still form and can be very deadly. He leaves is wife a daughter and two sons. He brought a new comedy that launched the careers of Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, Tim Matheson, John Candy, Chevy Chase, and many more. He was the writer for “Animal House” which began a series of truly funny movies. He will be missed. Our prayers go out to the family and all his friends.
RIP, Harold Ramis. One of the greatest comedy screen writers of all time: Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes, Ground Hog Day, Ghostbusters, Analyze This. Are you kidding me! Plus directing and acting. And he was a writer and sometime performer for SCTV (early eighties late night comedy. Think John Candy, Eugene Levy, Rick Moranis, Martin Short, Catherine O'Hara). He got his start in Second City in Chicago with greats such as John Belushi and Bill Murray. Such a great talent, and one of the few good natured, nice people in Hollywood. Harold, you have passed, but your work will live on.
god rest sol Harold Ramis spent almost his entire life making people laugh. For more than forty years, he churned out hysterical screenplays, collaborated with the titans of showbusiness and directed some of the most beloved comedies ever made. Sadly, at the age of 69, that brilliant ride is now over. Details are still very fuzzy at this point, but according to TMZ, he passed away at his Chicago home from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis early this morning after a multi-year fight with the illness. His family was there at the time, including his longtime wife Erica who he married in 1989. After writing plays in college, Ramis got his start working for the Chicago Daily News and contributing to Second City. From there, he was hired as Playboy’s joke editor and later worked alongside John Belushi and Bill Murray on The National Lampoon Radio Hour. That job turned into head writer of SCTV, which turned into a screenplay co-writer for Animal House. During the years that followed, Ramis either directed or ...
The Second City - Saturday, February 1, 2014 at 7:30pm at Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College. The Saturday Night Live talent pipeline has flowed straight from this Chicago-based sketch comedy troupe since the days of John Belushi, Bill Murray and Gilda Radner, while more recent SNL alums include Amy Poehler, Jason Sudeikis, Mike Myers and Tina Fey. These smart, cutting-edge comedians will have you begging them to stop cutting up.
Bill Murray's part in Ghostbusters was originally written for John Belushi, but he died shortly before the casting.
My sister, Jenny, and I had a 1/2 hour long convo about old SNL skits. We even got in the before we were born machine and discussed Gilda Radner, and I got to say, "You like a the juice? Juice is good, yes?" You have to have those every once in a while. Other highlights were the John Belushi's little chocolate donuts, the cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger, and Bill Murray with Swill.
Okay. a hmmm.. 1.) Buffy The Vampire Slayer - I just loved this show 2.) Angel TV show - spin off with Angel in t and later Spike. woot 3.) American Horror Story years 1 and 3. (2 was just okay) 4.) Supernatural - two hot brothers. lol 5.) Cheers - loved this bar and its kooky people that went there 6.) Seinfeld - a show about nothing that lasted 9 years, and was actually funny? woot 7.) Monty Python Flying Circus - sucked in and still love every lil skit by them 8.) Father Ted - I'm not religious at all, and this show just flat out made me laugh and laugh 9.) How can I decide between South Park and Family Guy and Archer? (I loved the first 7 or 8 seasons of The Simpsons, but it stopped being AS funny as it was.) 10.) Finally, Saturday Night Live. But with comments. First 4 years (with John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Dan Ackroyd, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Steve Martin, etc..). Anything with Eddie Murphy, the Adam Sandler - Chris Farley years, anything with Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, and ...
SNL has created some of the biggest celebrities in Pop culture. Lorne Michaels is more than a genius. Eddie Murphy, Will Ferrel, Mike Myers, Bill Murray, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Senator Al Franken, Chris Farley, Kirsten Wiig, Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, Seth Myers, Martin Short, Tim Meadows, Phil Hartman, John Belushi, Dan Akroyd, Molly Shannon, Mya Rudolph, Chris Kattan... infinity I can keep going but you get me!!
Just watched a you tube list of what some people think the top ten SNL sketches of all time were, Dan Ackroyd, not on it, Phil Hartman, not on it, Gilda Radner not on it, Chris Rock, and Garret Morris, not on it. Eddie Murphy on it once, John Belushi,and Bill Murray only on it once (and in the same cheeseburger sketch) and yet Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler are on it more than once. I feel sorry for you people who grew up with SNL after 1996, it's just sucked since then! SNL hasn't been relevant for almost 20 years.
I'm getting involved with Second City for the comedic songwriting class. Yes THE Second City in Chicago where comedic legends like Tina Fey, Mike Myers, Dan Akroyd, Stephen Colbert, Bill Murray and the late but great John Belushi have attended. I can't wait for this!!

As time goes on, when people discuss the great cast members of Saturday Night Live, it is absolutely essential that Bill Hader be placed among the giants and mentioned in the same breath as Bill Murray, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Eddie Murphy, Kristen Wiig, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, and Phil Hartman.
The stones, aykroyd, belushi, murray! and me?. I used to hang with Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray and John Belushi in their club, the Blues Bar, in New York, around 1979. Belushi was an over-the-top man. You can say THAT again. I said to John once, as my Father says, there’s a difference between scratching your *** and tearing it to bits. John was hilarious, and nuts to hang with. Belushi was an extreme experience even by my standards. A case in point. When I was a kid, I’d pop round *** s house. You want something to drink. Open the fridge, there’s nothing in it except maybe half a tomato. Big fridge. Thirty years later, walk into *** s apartment, open the fridge, it’s an even bigger fridge, what’s in there? Half a tomato and a bottle of beer. One night around this time, when we’d been handing out with Belushi in New York, we’d been in session all night and Ronnie and *** and I had gone back to *** s apartment. There’s a knock at the door, and there’s Belushi, dressed in a porte ...
Ahh, but I remember SNL with John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and Dan Ackroyd. It will never be THAT good again.

SNL TRIVIA FACTS Steve Martin is the only person to host a season premiere, a season finale, and a Christmas show and is the only person to host the show three times in a single season. He was never a cast member on the show. The misconception stems from the fact that he has hosted the show 15 times, in addition to doing occasional surprise appearances. John Goodman, a frequent guest host had auditioned for the show in 1980 when he was starting out as an actor. He has hosted the show 11 years in a row. There have been three sets of brothers who have been cast members on Saturday Night Live, John Belushi and James Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Peter Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Brian Doyle-Murray. Darrell Hammond holds the record for the number of seasons as a cast member (1995-2009), the oldest cast member (53 in his final season), and the number of times saying "Live from New York, it's Saturday night!" (70). Tim Meadows and Chris Parnell are the only cast members to be fired and then rehired the following season ...
when I married Ken and promised him "where you go, I will go, your people will be my people, your God my God" (book of Ruth), I had no idea that I'd land in Chicagoland and all that entailed. I've just learned yet another favorite funny man from my youth is from Chicagoland: John Belushi. John Belushi is from Wheaton, IL! First it was Bill Murray, then John Stossel (from our hometown, Wilmette), Charlton Heston, Ann Murray (Winnetka), Harold Ramis (Skokie/Glencoe), the Cusacks (Evanston), William Peterson (CSI/Evanston), Chris O'Donnell (Winnetka/Batman Forever) ...and more. Whose next?!
''I'm a zit. Geddit?'' How do you describe John Belushi? A ball of built up energy? A self destructive genius? A force that could not be contained? Many people have tried to explain the essance of Belushi but the words that best describe him come from brother Jim. ''Man, he was just a real funny guy.'' Coming to prominence in the original Saturday Night Live line up along side the likes of Dan Akroyd, Chevy Chase and Bill Murray, the ''Not Ready For Prime Time'' players all went on to be some of the funniest, groundbreaking comics of the 1980s and none were funnier than John Belushi. If SNL introduced the world to the larger than life Belushi his roles in Animal House and Blues Brothers made him a household name. But it came at a tragic cost.Few lived the life of excess that epitomized the 80s more than Belushi. His party antics are legendary. He truely believed the booze and cocaine were the key to keeping his enormous creative juices flowing. Then when he started on heroin it seemed only a matter of tim ...

Amazing stories about his time as one of the first writers for Saturday Night Live. He worked with the many of the original cast members including his BFF Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, John Belushi, Dan Akroyd and producer Lorne Michaels!

Memorable evening!
Dan Aykroyd looks back on his friendship with John Belushi and talks about the possibility of a second sequel to 'Ghostbusters'... And whether his friend Bill Murray will be involved.
Movie Review: 48 Hrs (1982): This is the film turned a young 21 year old Eddie Murphy into star. Beverley Hills Cop made him into the biggest star in the planet, but without 48 Hrs, the world wouldnt have endeared themselves into Murphy's style of humour. It's easy to dismiss this film as another knockabout action film from the eighties, but then that doesnt really tell the whole story about how this film came about. Originally written as a vehicle for Clint Eastwood and then Richard Pryor (Imagine what that combination would've been like.), Nick Nolte who eventually played Jack Cates was an established actor already, but by the time Pryor passed on this film the production needed to find someone and someone fast. Eddie Murphy was burning the small screen on Saturday Night Live (The place where Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi made it...) and he aced his audition.then Paramount saw some early rushes and wanted to fire Eddie Murphy for get this not being funny enough.well thankfully Paramount let dir ...
In today's selection - the iconic comedy show "Saturday Night Live" had its roots in Chicago's Second City Theater, which had famous alumni ranging from John Belushi to Bill Murray to Tina Fey and dozens in-between. But Second City had in turn emerged from the short-lived Compass Players, a theater company with a daring and often uncomfortable approach to comedy when it debuted in 1955. The star alumni from Compass were Mike Nichols and Elaine May, whose next step was to conquer Broadway with their improvisational comedy act, then build legendary careers in movie writing and directing. Their comedy intentionally distanced itself from the "Catskills" comedy of the day -- which relied on superficial, gag-based comedy instead of character -- and was part of the revolution brewing throughout 1950s American society that belied its quiet surfaces: "To fully grasp the shift that was taking place in New York comedy [in the 1960s], one must understand the 1950s Chicago theater company the Compass Players, from whi ...
I believe the best group of Saturday Night Live comedians came from the late 70's and early 80's era. Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Dan Akroyd, and the great John Belushi were the best. Only the cast of IN LIVING COLOR can come close.
2Do 2Nite in the 419 Still plenty of time to enjoy this comedy network that brought us great comedians like John Belushi, Mike Myers, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, John Candy, Catherine O’Hara, Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, and over 500 more.

When SNL was funny: Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, John Belushi. Their humor was not always predictable and not always at someone else's expense.
My fondest memories are still the last 70s cast - Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Dan Ackroyd, etc.,
On Saturday 23rd of February The Seventh Art are proud to introduce Adrian Rosenfeldlt to you. Adrian has been a core member of the band "Waxing The Sun". This is the focus of his humorous mockumentary, "Sunstruck". If you enjoyed "This is Spinal Tap", you will love "Sunstruck". It is full of Australian content, but with its own individual flavour. Anyone who has ever been in a small band will be able to identify with this film. Adrian will be available for Q and A on the night. After the screening of "Sunstruck" we will keep the same flavour by screening "The Rutles". The little known film featuring Eric Idle, George Harrison, John Belushi and Bill Murray. Please RSVP by the 22nd, and visit our website for further details.
Tonight's Late Feature recommendation is a classic (which I found while looking for the mediocre Bill Murray remake), it's The Razor's Edge from the story by W. Somerset Maugham. WWI vet Larry Darrell returns home from war with the anquish of a buddy dying after taking a bullet meant for him. Returning to the country club crowd in Chicago, he is unmotivated and spiritually lost. He leaves his fiancee and heads to France... which prompts him to soul search in India. Finding inner peace, he comes back to heal and later lose people close to him. Tyrone Power is no snarky Bill Murray, but carries the older version well. Side note: I actually wanted to watch the eulogy Bill Murray's character gives over a fallen comrade in war (played by his brother Brian Doyle Murray). The eulogy from the remake were the exact words Murray said at John Belushi's funeral: He was a slob, did you ever see him eat? Starving children could fill their bellies on the food that ended up on his beard and clothes. Dogs would gather to ...

I'm watching the Saturday Night Live special on NBC, focusing on the first 5 years, and the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players (Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris, Larraine Newman, Gilda Radner, and later Bill Murray and Eddie Murphy). Their humor then was very avant garde for TV--still is, when you think about it. Only on SNL could they get away with a skit, featuring Chevy and Richard Pryor, were they do word association in a job interview--and the words get increasingly racial. And at the end it went: Chase: "Spearchucker." Pryor (getting increasingly angry): "Honky!" Chase: *** " Pryor: "Honky honky!" Chase: *** " Pryor: "DEAD HONKY!"

Saturday FACTOID- The role of Dr. Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters was originally intended for John Belushi, but went to Bill Murray after Belushi's death. Some people involved in the making of the film have suggested that Murray never even read the script and improvised most of his lines.

In other words, John Belushi has a better shot of being in it than Bill Murray.
10 Most Famous Preserved Body Parts 9. Del Close’s Skull While Del Close had taught many improvisational giants in modern media such as Stephen Colbert, John Belushi, Tina Fey, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and others, it was perhaps his final request that wound up being the cruelest joke. Close has wanted his skull donated to the Goodman Theatre in Chicago so he could play Yorrick in “Hamlet.” While his creative partner Charna Halpern tried to make it happen, no medical organization would allow his skull to be separated from his head due to funding and/or ethical concerns. So Goodman Theatre has a stand-in while Close’s skull was cremated along with the rest of the body, according to Halpern.

OK, Gilda Radner, Jane Curtin, Laraine Newman, Christine Ebersole, Nora Dunn, Julia Sweeny, Jan Hooks, Victoria Jackson . . .That's all I got; so then I re-organize them alphabetically, . . .then "dead" vs "alive," then organize by mode of death: "Dead by natural causes," "death by drug overdose," "death by murder," and "not really dead, but no one knows them any more. . . " I did not return to sleep.
has just sneezed halfway through a lime curd sandwich. Remember that scene with Bill Murray in a hotel corridor with the ghost of John Belushi? Pretty much that.
sez: OK, here’s my gripe. Ellen DeGeneres is getting the Mark Twain Prize for Humor this year. Does she deserve it? Probably. She is, after all, the first major comic figure in American history to come out of the closet. But there are several who deserve it just as much if not more and have been shut out so far. I’m thinking of Mel Brooks, Carol Burnett, Sid Caesar, Woody Allen, Jerry Lewis, Bill Murray, Albert Brooks, Christopher Guest, Keenen Ivory Wayans. But I think the folk who hand out this award should issue the name each year of a “Hall of Fame” recipient, some comedian who is no longer with us but who deserves recognition. Perhaps family and friends could gather for a similar kind of evening, showcasing that person’s legacy. Here I’m thinking of Jack Benny, Will Rogers, George Burns and Gracie Allen, The Marx Brothers, The Three Stooges, Steve Allen, Charlie Chaplin, Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball, John Belushi, Robert Benchley, Albert Brooks, W.C. Fields, Jackie Gleason, Godfrey Cambrid ...
Bill Murray's Nick the lounge singer, Gilda Radner's Roseanne Rosanadanna, and John Belushi's samurai are also really great.
is hosting on Nov 3. It will be epic. Like if the ghosts of Gilda Radner&John Belushi mated w/ Bill Murray & had a comedy baby
I loved them so much! Lorraine Neuman, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, Garret Morris, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase...the Not Ready for Prime Time Players. I thought Bill Murray (my favorite) was one of the originals.
Ghostbusters was originally going to star John Belushi, but after his overdose, he was replaced by Bill Murray.
I don't know I just can't get into Sat Night Live I try every year to watch but its just stupid to me...I guess cuz I grew up with SNL cast John Belushi ,Gilda Radner, Dan Akroyd, Eddie Murphy ,Garrett Morris, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Jane Curtain , newer Dana Carvey ,Chris Farley...I miss Oh No Mr Bill...
Watching a SNL episode with Bill Murray and John Belushi and hosted by Steve Martin. Absolutely awesome!
Geek Trivia - For the movie Ghostbusters, the roles of Peter Venkman and Winston Zeddemore were originally written for John Belushi and Eddie Murphy. John Candy was also initially cast as Louis Tully, the role eventually played by Rick Moranis. After the death of John Belushi, the role of Peter Venkman was at one point offered to Chevy Chase before it was finally accepted by Bill Murray.
With the summer departures of Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Abby Elliott, “Saturday Night Live’s” Sept. 15 premiere will feature three new players imported from Chicago’s Second City (which has already given us everybody from Bill Murray and John Belushi to Mike Myers and Chris Farley to Tina Fey a...
I miss the Chris Farley, John Belushi, Phil Hartman, Bill Murray, Eddie Murphy, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Chris Rock, Dana Carvey, Adam Sandler, etc of the comedy world. No one these days can compare to the old SNL crew.
Bill Murray was not originally cast in Ghostbusters John Belushi was.
Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, John Belushi and Steve Martin. What more could you want! The 70's were great!
Will Ferrell 134 up, 173 down The worst and most overrated comedian/actor in history, period. This guy is a no talent hack. He was FAR from being the best on SNL. Bill Murray, Steve Martin, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, Phil Hartman, Mike Myers, and etc... They MADE SNL, while SNL sadly made Will Ferrell. Does the same annoying thing and plays pretty much the same role in every film. Yells all the time and tells the lamest jokes to 2 year olds, and shows off his nasty, sweaty, hairy and fat body. And nothing original about him. I am just at awe with his moronic fans who are mostly young, dumb, and don't know what true talent is. "Aahh wo, look at me everyone, I'm Will Ferrell!! I'm in my skin tight shorts running around in circles while farting and drenching in sweat, while shaking my fat disgusting *** at you all, telling jokes to mentally disabled teens(not literally, but just *** . This is TRUE comedy folks!!"
Bill Murray is the only person who can thank John Candy, Rodney Dangerfield, and John Belushi in an acceptance speech for Zombieland.
Some cast members are related to former staff of the show. One example is Jim Belushi, younger brother of cast member John Belushi. Before that, Bill Murray's older brother Brian Doyle-Murray was a writer and cast member. When Dan Aykroyd left the show in 1979, he was replaced by a series of short-l...

Dan Aykroyd wrote "Ghostbusters" w John Belushi in mind to play Dr. Venkman. But John died so Bill Murray was in the movie instead.
Just read that Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters wasnt originally written for Bill Murray, but John Belushi. Woulda been a VERY different movie.
it's still surpringly funny. Hard to imagine John Belushi rather that Bill Murray as Venkman, as originally written!
Star Trek with John Belushi, Bill Murray, from the "Best of SNL" !! So funny!!

Bill Murray is a bad *** Though now known for his roles in such classic films as "Stripes", "Groundhogs Day" and "Ghostbusters", Murray first got his start as a castmember on SNL. He performed there with such other comedy legends as John Belushi and Chevy Chase. S...
Today's Bill Murray comes complete with Gilda Radner and John Belushi...
Let's see ... once we reach Chicago, home of the legendary Second City improv school, we'll pass through Wheaton, native soil of John Belushi. We'll also make a run through Wilmette, birthplace of Bill Murray. We'll stop for the night in Waukegan, the city that gave us Jack Benny. We may even make a ride up to Milwaukee, birthplace of Chris Farley. Do you suppose I love comedy?
Bill Murray with one of his many great motivational speeches.
I've always thought of Jim as a mixture of Bill Murray and John Belushi. Wouldn't you agree?
All high school students should be forced to take a class in the History of real music, John Hughes movies, John Belushi and Bill Murray.
was checking out this 7 interesting things about bill murray list thing, thought i'd share one: Bill Murray was really great friends with comedy great and Saturday Night Live star John Belushi (Animal House) at the time of Belushi’s demise due to accidental drug overdose. The man lived in excess, was known for doing a lot of disgusting things and for making everyone laugh doing them. So, after Ghostbusters, when Bill Murray got the go ahead to make his pet project (a film called The Razor’s Edge based on W. Somerset Maugham’s 1944 novel about a disillusioned World War I vet, Larry Darrell, who travels the globe to find the meaning of life.) He only really did Ghostbusters so that Columbia Pictures would allow him to do this. He did and it was met with some critical acclaim, but overall box office failure, but included one gem of a scene where a character is eulogized. Given that this film was made a little after John Belushi’s death, Bill Murray decided to use the eulogy in his film, which he co-w ...
Top 5 movie "speeches" of all time. Ground rules: must be only 1 person and must be more than 1-2 lines. Here we go: 5. John Belushi-Animal House: "when the German's bombed Pearl Harbor" speech. 4. Clint Eastwood as Dirty Harry: "did I fire 5 shots or you feel lucky, PUNK?" 3. Bill Murray (Caddyshack): "Cinderella story, crowd is on its feet...Its in the hole!!" Deciding between 2 and 1 was SO hard for me, but here it goes: 2.Clint Eastwood as Josey Wales (my favorite movie of all time): "I came here to die with you. Or to live with you. Dyin' ain't hard for men like you's livin' that's hard" 2. Robert Shaw as Capt Quint (Jaws): "Mr Hooper, that's the USS Indianapolis.1100 men wen in the wAter, 325 came out, sharks got the rest, June 29th 1945. I'll never put on a life jacket again."
Is it a coincidence that all my favorite movies contain all my favorite actors in one way or another? Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, and Bill Murray.
If you didn't know who Bill Murray, Steve Martin, Dan Ackroyd, or John Belushi was growing up, you're too young for me.
Del Close was the driving force behind improvisational comedy in Chicago for over 30 years influencing Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Mike Myers, John Belushi, Chris Farley and the Upright Citizens Brigade to name a few. After Del's passing in 1999, the UCB started the Del Close Marathon to celebrate their ...
Also, I wonder that Peter Venkman would have been like played by the first choice John Belushi instead of Bill Murray?
