John Belushi would have been 65 yesterday. "Jan. 24 marks what would have been John Belushi's 65th birthday. To celebrate, we're featuring a vintage (and eerie) "Saturday Night Live" 1978 clip, “Don’t Look Back in Anger.” The short film takes place in the future. Belushi is an old man (if only) visiting the graves of comedians who died young, including Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase. "They all thought I'd be the first one to go," Belushi says in a prophetic statement. The "Animal House" star died in 1982 of a drug overdose. The first grave he visits in the film is that of Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer at the age of 42. The two were friends, first working together on "The National Lampoon Radio Hour" and then as cast mates on "SNL.” Legend has it that Radner and others had to persuade Lorne Michaels to hire Belushi for the sketch comedy show. Radner outlived her friend by seven years. But even with his career cut short, Belushi remains an icon, thanks to star turns in "Animal House" and "Th ...

Omg. Watching SNL right now seeing Dan Aykroyd and Steve Martin do the wild and crazy guys sketch is tragic. They've lost it. I totally loved the original sketches.

It's the birthday of the man who created Saturday Night Live — Lorne Michaels, born in Toronto, Canada (November 17, 1944). He formed a comedy duo with Hart Pomerantz. In the early '70s, they had their own television Variety Show, The Hart and Lorne Terrific Hour, on Canadian television. They also contracted their talents to comedic acts in the United States, writing for Phyllis Diller, Lily Tomlin, Joan Rivers, and Woody Allen. They wrote for the NBC show Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, and then NBC asked Michaels to come up with a comedy show to replace the Johnny Carson reruns that aired Saturday Nights at 11:30 p.m. Michaels recruited talent from all sorts of places. Dan Aykroyd was a fellow Canadian, and Chevy Chase, John Belushi, and Gilda Radner had worked on the National Lampoon show. Muppet creator Jim Henson created sketches for the show, and recent Harvard grad Al Franken was signed on as a writer. Michaels put together the first season, 1975-1976, and won an Emmy for it. He said: "The show doesn' ...

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.

"So i was walking downtown with Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner.." How my improv teacher starts the class
As you know, Saturday Night Live is my favorite show and I have seen most of them since the beginning. With the 38th season coming up, I want to go back and tell you some of my favorite characters over the years, the ones I find amusing and falling off the floor in laughter. Not only from cast members, but from guests as well. Ones like Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, John Goodman and Jerry Seinfeld to name a few. This is going back from 1975 to the present. Some are impersonations and memorable characters in sketches. Starting with my favorite, John Belushi - Jake Blues, Joe Cocker, his Little Chocolate Donuts commercial, Gilda Radner - Roseanne Rosadanna, Dan Aykroyd - Elwood Blues and Julia Child, Jane Curtin - Joan Face, Chevy Chase - Gerald Ford, Laraine Newman - Valley girl type, Al Franken - Stewart Smalley, Paul Shaffer - Don Kirshner, Steve Martin - Performing the King Tut Song, Eddie Muphy - Gumy and Buckwheat, Joe Piscopo - Curly from the Three Stooges, Mary Gross - Alfalfa, Tim Kazurinsky - Dr. Ja ...
What do comedy superstars such as Tina Fey, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Stephen Colbert, and Andrea Martin have in common?
Maybe it's a Penalty and a Tax ? Andrew Rosenthal says the debate over whether the individual health insurance mandate is a "penalty" or "tax" reminds him of the hilarious Saturday Night Live skit in which Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner argue over whether a new product is a floor wax or a dessert topping.
One of my favorite SNL skits: Dan Aykroyd as Jimmy Carter, Gilda Radner as Lillian Carter & Gary Busey whooping it up as Billy Carter..
