I was amazed Don Pardo was still alive when I heard he still was alive several years ago. Watching vintage Saturday Night Live, I like how he used to participate in a lot of bits, telling weird announcer jokes during the credits and stuff. That sort of unaffected announcer character he had in the middle of inane/clever sketches is pretty mindblowing in its way. Now that he's passed, I hope he is narrating some rambling piece of experimental tv dreck with John Belushi and Gilda Radner somewhere in the universe.
There's a delay at the Pearly Gates. St Peter is asking if he can borrow Don Pardo's voice so he can sell a horn to Gabriel. For many years a popular voice, but he hit it really big with his many years at Saturday Night Live. But wait, there's more! Now he can rejoin John Belushi and every other person from Saturday Night Live for a really big show in Heaven! RIP? VIP! Voiceovers Into Posterity. The clock has struck 1AM 12AM Central Don Pardo! Good night!
The Blues Brothers: written by Dan Aykroyd and John Landis; directed by John Landis; starring John Belushi (Jake Blues), Dan Aykroyd (Elwood Blues), and a cast of thousands including Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, James Brown, Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker, Carrie Fisher, Twiggy, Steven Spielberg, Frank Oz, Joe Walsh, Mr. T. and Paul Ruebens (1980): It's hard to imagine a vanity project this counter-intuitive being made today. The Blues Brothers is a musical in which the titular heroes (first performed by Aykroyd and Belushi on Saturday Night Live) stand to the side and bounce around every ten minutes while a legend of rhythm and blues performs. And Cab Calloway. Even in 1980, Cab Calloway must have seemed like a reach. But it all works surprisingly well, maybe better now that we've endured 34 years of much less agile-afoot action-comedies, none of which feature Aretha Franklin singing in a diner or a performance of the theme from Rawhide at a Country-and-Western bucket of blood. John Landis wasn't a ...
This is something I learned when I was watching John Belushi's Saturday Night Live in my early Glen A. Wilson High School days in the US.
John Adam Belushi (January 24, 1949 – March 5, 1982) was an American comedian, actor, and musician. He is best known as one of the original cast members of the hit NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live. He was the older brother of James "Jim" Belushi. He was known for his brash, energetic comedy style and raunchy humor. During his career he had a close personal and artistic partnership with fellow SNL comedian and author Dan Aykroyd. Belushi died on March 5, 1982 in Hollywood, California after overdosing on a mixture of cocaine and heroin (a 'speedball') at the age of 33. He was posthumously honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, on April 1, 2004. John Belushi was born in Chicago. His mother, Agnes Demetri (Samaras), was the daughter of Albanian immigrants, and his father, Adam Anastos Belushi, was an Albanian immigrant, from Qytezë. John was raised in Wheaton, a Chicago suburb, along with his three siblings: younger brothers Billy and Jim and his sister, MarianThe family's name at the ...

Yep its Tuesday. Scales is half drunk watching old DVDs of Saturday Night Live with Gilda Radner, John Belushi, and Dan Akroyd. Won't shut up about how great they are. I would say I wish he would pass out. But honestly I just wish they would call him back to work. Ready for peace and quiet and to have the house to myself again.
Gone But Not Forgotten: ***James Dean was born in Marion, Indiana and moved with his family to Santa Monica, California. He gained fame by appearing in the movies "Rebel Without a Cause" and "East of Eden." Dean met a tragic end, being killed in a U.S. Route 466 head-on crash on Sept. 30, 1955 at the age of 24. ***Marilyn Monroe became an American icon as a movie starlet during the 1950s. She gained further fame with a brief marriage to Yankees baseball great Joe DiMaggio. She was discovered dead in her home of a drug overdose in 1962 at the age of 36. ***John Belushi, born in Chicago to an Albanian immigrant family, gained notoriety on "Saturday Night Live" and in the movie "The Blues Brothers." He died in 1982 at the age of 33 from an injected drug overdose.
My opinions on Saturday Night Live? Well - it's made stars out of many comedians (John Belushi [the Blues Brothers movie, along with Dan Ackroyd] , Chevy Chase, Phil Hartman, Gilda Radner, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, among others) How will the current cast do? Time will tell

This week is the anniversary of the death of comedian, actor, and musician John Belushi. Who could forget his frontman's vocal contribution to the band "The Blues Brothers," especially if you were around to see their musical sketch in 1976 on television's "Saturday Night Live." They also released a CD "Briefcase Full of Blues" in 1978 and "The Blues Brothers" movie in 1980. If you are younger than that, they have plenty of youtube videos to check out, which include, but are not limited to, cartwheels across the stage by Belushi. They have plenty of soul and R&B with their musical covers of the "Downchild Blues Band" and hits like "Flip, Flop, & Fly," "Hey Bartender," and "Shotgun Blues." You'll hear these songs and plenty more soul music Wednesday at 9 pm, repeating Saturdays at 6 pm on this week's "Bay Whalin' Hour." Tune in to 89.7 KUCB in Unalaska/Dutch Harbor, stream the show on the web at www.kucb.org, or on a podcast at www.baywhalinhour.com. Thanks for listening! ~Wendy Hladick, host & producer
If Chris Farley were alive today, imagine the fun he would have portraying Rob Ford while guest hosting Saturday Night Live. It's as if Rob Ford was made for Chris Farley to lampoon, and yet, Chris Farley is dead. He is probably doing Rob Ford impressions for Gilda Radner, John Belushi, and Phil Hartman, in Valhalla.
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.

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 ...

Today's lyrical puzzler: "Fly me high through the starry skies, or maybe to an astral plane, cross the highways of fantasy, help me to forget today's pain…" * Yesterday's lyrical puzzler: "Got what I got the hard way, and I'll make it better each and every day, so honey, don't you fret, 'cause you ain't seen nothin' yet…" Answer: "Soul Man" Sam and Dave, 1967 The Blues Brothers, 1979 Fun fact: This track, co-written by Isaac Hayes, reached on the charts in 1967 and helped define the "soul music" genre of the late '60s/early '70s. Sam and Dave were the most successful of the Stax Records artists who competed with Motown in the R&B category throughout the '60s. In November 1978, John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd dressed up in black suits and sunglasses on "Saturday Night Live" and did a credible rendition of "Soul Man" in a skit as The Blues Brothers. It went over so well, they released it as a single which reached went on a brief but hugely successful tour and recorded an album that went to and eventuall .. ...
Happy Monday. FYI: 1979 - "Soul Man", recorded by comedians John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as the fictitious singing team, The Blues Brothers, debuted on Billboard's pop charts. The Blues Brothers had originally been created for television's Saturday Night Live, and had been so popular that it prompted several records and a movie with Jake and Elwood Blues. Soul Man peaked at Number 14 on the charts.
I've had too much to do to get into a book I can't put down so I've been doing some light reading. "My Mother Was Nuts" by Penny Marshall was surprisingly entertaining. I am a huge Laverne and Shirley fan although the book didn't mention it all that much. There was a lot of history from the heyday of Saturday Night Live in the John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, etc. days. A good read especially if you are a product of those days. Last night I started "Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die" by Willie Nelson. The forward is by Kinky Friedman (I'm a fan). I'm not far into it - right now Willie is musing about his childhood in Abbott, Tx. I think I'm going to like it. Good Christmas gift from Jen Ren.

Died on this day: Chris Farley Farley was one of the most beloved and gifted comedians of recent times. His brash, no holes barred style of comedy played well with younger audiences and reminded older ones of his role model, the late great John Belushi. This led to his becoming a regular cast member on Saturday Night Live. Chris was born in Madison Wisconsin. He came from a family of drinkers and his substance abuse began very early. In highschool he was the chubby class clown, trying desperately to fit in. He did this by getting drunk, or high, then making everyone laugh with his comic routines. Even back then, his talent was obvious and his peers all agreed he was destined for fame. He eventually made his way to Chicago and the Second City auditions, where he was so good, they hired him on the spot. This lead to his being cast on Saturday Night Live just a year later. Chris was living his dream, and following in the footsteps of his idol, John Belushi. Farley frequently collaborated with his fellow cas ...

I just saw Lady Gaga perform on Saturday Night Live. Well, just when you thought that Miley Cyrus had hit rock bottom in the bad taste department, Lady Gaga comes in and starts blasting. The low-talent Gaga, whose career is based on being a younger Madonna, sang a song called "Do What You Want With My Body," in which she repeatedly grabbed her crotch, then engaged in dry *** with a generic-looking rapper. The whole act looked like what Kim Kardashian would do if she tried to sing. I wished to God that John Belushi would have run on stage wearing a toga and smashed an acoustic guitar over Gag-ga's head, then shrugged and said "sorry."
"Like" if you remember the Saturday Night Live sketch in which John Belushi plays Vito Corleone in a group therapy session. Lorraine Newman's character laments, "Vito, you're blocking!" P.S. It only counts if you saw it when it was originally aired, not in reruns. Sorry!
John Belushi only appeared on four seasons on "Saturday Night Live" and in seven feature films before his untimely death at the age of 33, but he made an indelible impact on American comedy (and college life). Now more than … Continue reading →
John Belushi biopic Casts Emile Hirsch In The Lead Role Early last week we learned that the list of actors being considered for the lead in the upcoming John Belushi biopic had been whittled down to just four names. Emile Hirsch, Adam Devine, Adam DeMamp (of Comedy Central’s Workaholics) and Joaquin Phoenix were reportedly the final performers whom director Steve Conrad and the producers were considering for the part - and today they've officially made their decision. Hirsch, who was most recently seen earlier this year starring alongside Paul Rudd in David Gordon Green's Prince Avalanche, has been cast to play the Animal House and Saturday Night Live star. Based on a script written by Conrad, whose credits include The Pursuit of Happyness, The Weather Man and the upcoming The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, the biopic will tell the true story of how Belushi used his incredible comedic genius to become one of the biggest comedians in film and television, only to have it all ripped away by drugs and alcohol ...
Emile Hirsch has been tapped to star as the late John Belushi in a planned biopic on the comedian who became a star as an original cast member on Saturday Night Live.
Watching earlier episodes of Saturday Night Live made me realize two things: 1. John Belushi was a comedic genius and it would've been killer to see him portray Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters 2. Gilbert Gottfried actually has a lovely voice when he's not screaming
Gary and I have no cable, and sporadic access to live TV, so we pretty much watch Netflix. They rarely have what we specifically want, but we can always find something interesting. Lately we've been watching the first couple years of Saturday Night Live. (Obviously, neither of us was old enough to watch when it was it was live, so they have been new to us, with the exception of the few bits that have been in the best of spotlights...) I never really realized what a good actor John Belushi was. I knew he was funny, but I've been a bit surprised that he was such a good character actor and impersonator. We're on season two, episode 8 or 9 ... tonight's episode had "Consumer Probe" into unsafe toys, including the famous Bag O' Glass. LOLOLOLOLOLOL. Also Frank Zappa. Interesting music. I'm not sure whether I liked it, but it was interesting.
John Belushi an Gilda Radner must be spinning in their graves. In the interest of truth in advertising, Saturday Night Live should be renamed *** Reading Cue Cards".

Of the younger lead actors, only John Belushi was an established star, but even he had not yet appeared in a film, having gained fame mainly from his Saturday Night Live television appearances. Several of the actors who were cast as college students, including Karen Allen, Tom Hulce, and Kevin Bacon, were just beginning their film careers, although Tim Matheson was coming off a large role as one of the assassin motorcycle cops in the second Dirty Harry film, Magnum Force.
Just got back from a gig, watching the Best of John Belushi on Saturday Night Live on Netflix and having a nice glass of Centennial Rye. Belushi was a genius and this Rye us quite amazing as well.
Love watching Simon and Garfunkel, the muppets, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, and John belushi on Saturday Night Live.
Whose Line Is It Anyway?* was the original title of Saturday Night Live. *John Belushi kept shouting it, so that's what they called it.
I can't stop laughing, oh my god. Saturday Night Live with John Belushi was more hilarious than the present SNL.
Saturday Night Live is SO NOT funny any more. They should take the "Sa_ _ _ _ay Night Live" part out of the title. I miss Gilda Radner, Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, etc. call me old.
I loved the movie and these two guys blues act. When they debuted on Saturday Night Live it was unbelievable. Dan Aykroyd was the driving force behind the Blues Brothers. While John Belushi was filming Animal House in Oregon he met Curtis Salgado who helped John develop his persona of Jake Blues. Curtis is still a force today and he is the real deal. As good an actor and performer as Belushi was, you really need to check out Curtis to understand what the real deal is all about. Elwood has a west coast radio show that can be heard on the net at thebluesmobile.com.

Today in History June 16, 1980 - "The Blues Brothers" opens in Chicago Lead vocalist "Joliet Jake" Blues (John Belushi) and harmonica player/backing vocalist Elwood Blues (Dan Aykroyd) had their musical debut on January 17, 1976 in a comedy sketch on Saturday Night Live. The Blues Brothers appeared twice more on SNL sketches, both in 1978, before releasing their first album that same year: Briefcase Full of Blues. The Blues Brothers film created around these two characters was released on this day in 1980. Dan Aykroyd developed his musical talents during the late fifties and early sixties at an Ottowa club called Le Hibou, (French for 'the owl'), saying "I actually jammed behind Muddy Waters. S. P. Leary left the drum kit one night, and Muddy said 'anybody out there play drums? I don't have a drummer.' And I walked on stage and we started, I don't know, Little Red Rooster, something. He said 'keep that beat going, you make Muddy feel good.' Eric Idle of Monty Python was once an SNL guest host, and he pa . ...
part 2 booker T,As important as their music, Booker T. & the MG's — two black members and two white members — became a symbol of racial integration in the South during the civil rights years. As the individual members began getting session work in other cities, they had less and less time for their work as the MG's, and the group called it quits in 1971. Their final album, released that year, was the aptly named Melting Pot. In 1975, the band had begun work on a reunion album when Al Jackson was shot and killed by a burglar at his home in Memphis. Three years later, Cropper and Dunn backed the Blues Brothers — Saturday Night Live's John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd's semi-serious send-up of an R&B band — for the Number One album Briefcase Full of Blues, which included a cover of the Sam & Dave hit "Soul Man" that reached Number 14 on the Pop chart. The project was so popular that Cropper and Dunn worked with Belushi and Aykroyd on a 1980 film of the same name. The two also continued their work as sessi ...
Hey guys, "Man of Steel" comes out this weekend! That's all the excuse we need to revisit this 1979 "Saturday Night Live" sketch, featuring Bill Murray as Superman, Dan Aykroyd as The Flash, John Belushi as The Hulk, among others.
Back in the real world. First I had to finish up the semester with grading and meetings. Then it was off to Chicago to see the Rolling Stones. What great shows they put on! My ears are still ringing. *** Jagger is nearly 70, and he runs around the stage and dances two and a half hours for each performance. It's exhausting just watching him. Rolling Stones fans are just as interesting. Before and after each performance they gatherd at a place called The Billy Goat. The Billy Goat inspired Dan Ackroyd and John Belushi to do the old Saturday Night Live skit of "Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger, no Coke, Pepsi." Conversations with fellow fans always centered around how many times and when we'd seen the Stones perform. I was the only one who could say that I saw them first in Omaha in 1964. After I would state that, there would be silence. Then I would hear, "You win!"
''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 ...

Good Guy Question of the Day: Who was or is your favorite Saturday Night Live star?
We lost someone very dear to us today, March 5th. It was 31 years ago. John Belushi. I loved your movies and the characters you played on Saturday Night Live as an adolescent.
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 ...

Back before YouTube on the internet and affordable home video, fans wishing to see past content of old TV shows had to pretty much wait til that show was re-run.

So Jessica is walking by the tv and Ronnie has on Saturday Night Live, an old one. She's laughing at it. Then she goes, Daddy who's John Belushi?
USELESS KNOWLEDGE: Gilda Radner was the first cast member hired for the original Saturday Night Live troupe; John Belushi was the last hired.
Watched the opening of Saturday Night Live,and they tried to mock the situation on the stranded cruise liner. Could somebody tell me; will Saturday Night Live ever get back to doing any comedy? I don't think I've seen anything funny on that show since uh,John Belushi was on there! Will they ever hire some good comedy writers? Hmmm. I've been missing Saturday Night Live since...1977?
Kickin it old school on this Sat night. I bought seasons 1of Saturday Night Live. Kind of sad that on the first episode both musical guest (Janis Ian & Billy Preston), host (George Carlin), John Belushi, Gilda Radner and Andy Kaufman have all passed on. Makes you feel kind of old. Second episode has Paul Simon and Art Garfunkle, I forgot how much I love their music. I think I'll be downloading some tunes later. The only thing missing from my Sat night that I used to be doing is babysitting which won't be happening.
I don't care what people say, CONEHEADS is the best Saturday Night Live based movie next to WAYNE'S WORLD.
OMG, Saturday Night Live! John Belushi is spinning in his grave like a lathe!
Oscar Trivia: Dan Aykroyd. John Belushi. Eddie Murphy. Bill Murray. All but one of these Saturday Night Live stars was nominated for an acting Oscar. Which one was never nominated? (Bonus: can you name the films in which the other three showed their acting chops? NO GOOGLING!!) -Tim
TRIVIA: In an interview on The Today Show (a.k.a. "Today" (1952)) (included on the Saturday Night Live: The Best of John Belushi (2005)), Dan Aykroyd stated that the movie that would eventually become Spies Like Us was intended to star Aykroyd and John Belushi. Belushi's death shortly after the interview obviously prevented his participation.
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!"
You Gotta See This! John Belushi would have been 64 years old yesterday here is his Saturday Night Live audition...
Watching the first season of NBC's Saturday Night (renamed 2 years later as Saturday Night Live). The 1st show was hosted by George Carlin with musical guests Billy Preston and Janis Ian. You had John Belishi, Chevy Chase, Any Kaufman, Valri Bromfield, Dan Aykroyd, Al Franken and Richard Belzer in that episode. The 2nd show was hosted by Paul Simon and had musical guests of Randy Newman, Phoebe Snow and Art Garfunkel (for a Simon/Garfunkel reunion). It also had Connie Hawkins, Marv Albert and Bill Bradley in addition to the regular cast. The 3rd show was hosted by Rob Reiner and his then-wife Penny Marshall and had no musical guest because Reiner requested that John Belushi do his impersonation of Joe Cocker while performing "With a Little Help from My Friends" (which originated during Belushi's stint in National Lampoon's Lemmings) in lieu of a musical guest. No wonder the show caught on and took off. Today's show pales in comparison to the first ten years of the show though.
We're watching ''Saturday Night Live - 1070's" with all the old gang, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Chevy Chase, and George Carlin. These were the greats!
Hot Date tomorrow with Destiny the greatest and most loved woman in my world. First, dinner at the Dry Beaver Supper Club and then my favorite Blues Brothers show. I get to see the Blues Brothers tribute band in of all places Duncan Oklahoma. BRIEFCASE BLUES is the number-one, first and ORIGINAL tribute show-band and revue based on the “Blues Brothers” characters originally created by Saturday Night Live comedians Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi. Of all the tributes and look-alikes around the world dedicated SOLELY to portraying the “Brothers” live onstage only one group – BRIEFCASE BLUES they have held the honor now for a total of TWENTY-EIGHT years, complete with a full-sized professional band. This is my kinda fun, love live entrainment. Hope they were the bumble bee outfits.

I used to work security for (1) Joe Richards who was in talks to open a "business" with (2) Heidi Fleiss who was engaged to (3) Tom Sizemore who was in True Romance with (4) Chris Penn who was in Footloose with Kevin Bacon. Wait! I can do better! I also once met (1) Rodney Dangerfield who was in Caddy Shack with (2) Chevy Chase who was on Saturday Night Live with (3) John Belushi who was in Animal House with an unknown actor named - Kevin Bacon!

Hurricane Sandy destroyed the house of Kenny Vance, who sang in Jay and the Americans, opened for the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, picked musical acts for "Saturday Night Live" and produced movie soundtracks.
Watching an old episode of Saturday Night Live and just realized that in this episode looks like John Belushi.
I just turned on the late game, Steelers vs Ravens, and could only think of one thing when I saw the Steelers' uniforms; John Belushi doing Killer Bees on Saturday Night Live.
I'm sorry but those Steeler uniforms are ridiculous. It looks like the Killer Bees from the old Saturday Night Live shows. I'm waiting for someone to turn a flip like John Belushi.
The Steelers look like they stole their uniforms from the John Belushi exhibit at Saturday Night Live. Buzz buzz!
Is it just me or do the Steelers uniforms remind you of that Saturday Night Live sketch they used to do about the bees. John Belushi was a hoot!
Wow! Just turned the game on: The Steelers look like 'The Killer Bees' sketch from the original Saturday Night Live. I keep expecting to see John Belushi playing linebacker with antaennas sticking out of his helmet!
I think it's touching the Steelers are paying tribute to John Belushi's Killer Bees skit from '75 Saturday Night Live
Ok for all of you more mature individuals out there old enough to remember John Belushi on Saturday Night Live in the Bee skit.I think I just saw him in a Pittsburgh Steeler uniform.those have to be the most embarassing uniforms that I have ever seen.buz.
Steeler's uniforms remind me Saturday Night Live from years ago; John Belushi as the "Killer Bee!" Lol!
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' ...
Hey anybody remember the Saturday Night Live skit about Donna Texas after the biggest Marijuana bust in History. I have looked but I can't find it. I think it was called "A Day in the Life of an Average Family in Donna Texas". It was John Belushi as the Dad, Jane Curtain as the Mom, I think Dan Akroyd as the son and I can't remember who played the daughter Maybe Gilda Radner.
Do you think my TV provider needs to update their info on the Saturday Night Live listing? It has the cast credited as John Belushi, Phil Hartman, Eddie Murphy, Darrell Hammon...
Here's FEAR's infamous performance on Saturday Night Live. (Thank you, John Belushi.)
Just had to explain what Saturday Night Live was to flatmate. She gave me a blank stare when I mentioned John Belushi and Steve Martin.
Watchin' Saturday Night Live: the best of John Belushi he was funny as ***
I just saw a comment that said "Saturday Night Live hasn't been funny in years." Maybe I'm losing touch with reality, but I have been watching SNL since back in the days of John Belushi, Eddie Murphy, Chevy Chase, etc. and I maintain that the shows in the past four or five years have been much BETTER, more consistent and funnier (scene for scene) than any previous years. Of coursejust as with great radio stations of the past, we only remember the good stuff; same with those great scenes from the supposed "Golden Age" of SNL. How soon we forgot that most of the scenes from those shows which did not work at all. It seems to me that in recent years, more than 70% of SNL shows are funny compared to the 40% or so from the Belushi up through the Jimmy Fallon era. What's your opinion? (Please don't comment if you still think Dennis Miller is funny, Three Dog Night was a great band and if you only watch two or three SNL shows a year- you will only skew the poll we're taking). Also, trolls who just wanna see thei ...
*** ! The programing guide for TV states John Belushi, Eddie Murphy and Phil Hartman are making a appearance on Saturday Night Live... What kind of crap is this. Phil Hartman dies almost a decade ago... how can this be a new episode?
Two teenagers dressed up as the Blues Brothers. The one really looked like John Belushi. They told me we are so supprised that so many people know who we are. I told them Saturday Night Live was a staple in the seventies, no longer true now. It is no longer that fun to watch. I do like to see how they mimick the politicians though.
Fun Facts: * Honey is the only food that does not spoil * The famous baby appearing on jars of Gerber baby food is actually a girl named Ann Turner. The picture was drawn by artist Dorothy Hope Smith in 1928. * In the late 1970s, Coca-Cola Co. boycotted the NBC late-night comedy show "Saturday Night Live" for several years. The giant soda company was retaliating against a frequent character of comedian John Belushi's, a Greek restaurant owner, who repeatedly said to customers, "No Coke... Pepsi," thus saying the rival company's name dozens of times throughout each skit.
When Saturday Night Live first came on I was in college. We would have large parties when the show came on and we watched intently on black and white tv. It was so original and funny and hip.
A Saturday Night Live writer may be part of the Save Our Bones community. Here’s why I’m saying this. I’ve always been a big fan of Saturday Night Live, especially the older seasons. I remember watching John Belushi and laughing until my throat hurt.
On this day in 1975, Saturday Night Live (SNL), a topical comedy sketch show featuring Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Garrett Morris, Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman, makes its debut on NBC; it will go on to become the…
I remember when we would be at a party, concert or out somewhere and we had to go home to watch SNL. Too bad it is not as good as it used to be. Oct. 11, 1975 Saturday Night Live airs for the first time. Among the original cast: Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Gilda Radner and Chevy Chase.
Saturday Night Live debuted on this date in 1975, with Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, Chevy, Gilda, Garret, Jane & Laraine.who was the 1st host? Do you remember?
Watching the first season of Saturday Night Live on Netflix. Bringing back lots of '70's memories. Simon and Garfunkle reunited to perform, John Belushi doing Joe Cocker, Jim Hensen's Muppets- with Jim Hensen's voice, lots of political jabs about then President Ford, Andy Kaufman nervously lip-synching the Might Mouse theme song, and Gilda Radner.
I've been watching "Saturday Night Live" the complete first season DVDs while riding my exercise bike in the morning...I never saw some of these shows...hosts Raquel Welch! Madeline Kahn! Some awesome musical guests, Paul Simon, Bill Withers...all from the first season in 1976. John Belushi as Henry Kissinger LOL

It was a seminal moment in the early days of Saturday Night Live. Tonight in 1976, Joe Cocker was onstage singing, and John Belushi joined him. Classic, classic stuff.
John Belushi Auditions for Saturday Night Live 1975: for you .. all for you .. of ya
John Belushi and Gilda Radner are probably spinning in their graves. I am watching Saturday Night Live. How lame their sketches are compared to the ones those two used to be involved in!
Saturday Night Live (SNL) used to be my favorite 'late tv show.' Sad to say, but no more! Thanks to those replacement refs, I have switched my loyalties to MNF (Monday Night Football). The NFL game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers speaks for itself! What with all those college games and NFL games for two solid days, I need some comic relief. I got lots of it last night. I should have learned not to wish what I want. Those replacement refs brought back hilarious memories of the good, old SNL's with John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd, Chevy Chase, et. al...LOL...
On this Date 1975...NBC premiered a brand-new late-night comedy-variety program that in addition to launching the careers of John Belushi, Dan Ackroyd and an entire generation of comic actors, would also give America its first exposure to some of the era's greatest up-and-coming musical acts. That show, however, was not called Saturday Night Live—at least not at first...where The Bay City Rollers were making their U.S. television debut in headlining the premiere of Howard Cosell's Saturday Night Live!!
Do you remember ‘cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger?’ It was a reoccurring skit on the original version of Saturday Night Live. John Belushi played the patriarch of a Greek family that owned and ran a burger joint where the menu was limited, ‘no fries, chips’ and so were the drink choices, ‘no coke, pepsi’. The model for that skit is a hole in the wall joint in downtown Chicago called the Billy Goat Tavern. Belushi and his best friend, Dan Akyroid must have encountered the place while they were cast members of the Second City comedy troupe. Since Troy, Michael, and I were in Chicago for the Worldcon, we decided to check the place out. Streets in downtown Chicago are built on two levels and Billy Goat’s was on the lower level which meant the place was in darkness even on a bright summer afternoon. We went in and I stepped to the counter and told the woman standing behind it, “I would like a single hamburger.” To which she replied, “No single, double!” That set me back a lit ...
Slowly my favorite TV shows are returning: 1) Saturday Night Live was excellent. I know; you will say that it was better before. That's fine, I don't care. I've been hearing the same criticism since John Belushi was alive. Did I mention that this is SNL's 39th season? 2) Boardwalk Empire. Darker, rawer, etc. Loved it! Coming soon: The Walking Dead. Did y'all know that Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull is Andrew Lincoln's (the sheriff) father-in-law in real life? Unfortunately I have to wait until next year for my favorite: Game of Thrones
I'd like to know the name of the a**hole who said that Morgan Freeman's dead. Why don't you kill off every single member of Saturday Night Live all the way back from the mid 90s before you mess with one of the greatest actors of a generation. In fact put a bullet in John Belushi in 1980 so Animal House would never be in the same breath as Caddyshack as one of the funniest movie of all time. I get more laughs from Silkwood.
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 ...

Best of John Belushi on Saturday Night Live # top ten greatest men ever...
Watching early Saturday Night Live. Some bits don't quite stand the test of time...like the sketches based on events of the time, but especially the mock commercial for three-blade razors, made as a satirical response to the new twin-blade razor that Gillette had recently begun making. Obviously they didn't envision five-blade razors 30 years down the road...But John Belushi dressed as a bee singing blues will always bee hilarious.
.is just waiting on Obama to bring John Belushi back from the grave. He is working on old Saturday Night Live cast members. He has already brought Phil Hartman back and renamed him Joe Biden. And he has a career dead Al Franken in office. His whole term has been a joke with the clowns he brings into office.
I have a feeling many of youse don't remember Bruce Jenner and the 76 Olympics. He won the decathalon and America was cheering him home in one of his last races. And later on he carried a small American Flag around the track. This was so inspirational that the Wheaties cereal people put his image on their cereal boxes. That is, or was memorable. The other part I remember is a man by the name of John Belushi, the late great comedian. On one of his Saturday Night Live skits, he did an imitation of that great event. In SNL that time, JB was shown running around the track and winning the gold. And he too was carrying the American Flag. Any of you folks remember that? It was a funny bit. And done in good taste. A tribute, if you will, to a great Olympic athlete, Bruce Jenner.
unbelieveable day-still transferring vhs to dvd -first got myself in the mood for winter sports-watche the Pats win the Super bowl in 2004-then watched 3 playoff games between the Bruins and Canadiens from 1994 the ended the day with comedy-GeorgeCarlin, Tim Allen and topped it off with Saturday Night Live's 15th annivrsary show-loved seeing John Belushi and Gilda Radner again-bless their souls-still think the earliest shows were the best-so much great talent there-Chevy Chase,Steve Martin, Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, Bily Crystal, Jane Curtin, Eddie Murphy, Gilda Radner, Martin Short and others-anyone remember the bass in the blender routine, and the JuliaChild kitchen mishap-and last but not least-The Blues Brohers!!
Yesterday we posted John Belushi's screen test for Saturday Night Live. Today we feature an altogether different kind of 'screen test': Andy Warhol's unblinking film portrait of an irritated-looking Bob Dylan.
Samurai Delicatessen always makes me crack up. (watching Saturday Night Live (SNL): The Best of John Belushi)

Some cast members are related to former staff of the show. One example is Jim Belushi, younger brother of cast member John Belushi.

Of course phat. Women do make good partners if a person wants them to go to the doctor to get them a prescription for diet pills. Watch out now. Skinny today could mean gigantic tomorrow . The human body seems to adjust incredibly quickly to overcome the effects of weird substances making the body expand and shrink really quickly. One might remember John Belushi, Saturday Night Live, first cast star who died from a "speedball", a combination of heroin and cocaine mixed together and injected.

There has never been a performance like this on SNL before or since and there probably never will. The only reason FEAR got booked was because John Belushi called in some favors and the shows ratings were in the toilet that year. As the last song begins the mike is cut and they fade to commercial.

"The Kinkster, whose solo performance has recently been described as "Mark Twain meets Groucho Marx . . . at the corner of Johnny Cash and Lenny Bruce," will be hitting the road fresh on the heels of the release of his brand new book, The Billy Bob Tapes: A Cave Full of Ghosts, co-authored by and about the life and times of Billy Bob Thornton. With a foreword from Angelina Jolie,.Kinky Friedman rose to stardom in the '70s, with his seminal band the Texas Jewboys. An equal-opportunity offender, Kinky, with his outrageous lyrics and crazed stage persona, may have offended some, but drew people like Don Imus, Robin Williams, Bob Dylan and John Belushi into his spiritual fan club. He toured with Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue and appeared on the inaugural season of Saturday Night Live."

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 ...
Daniel Edward "Dan" Aykroyd, CM (born July 1, 1952) is a Canadian comedian, singer, actor and screenwriter. He was an original cast member of Saturday Night Live, an originator of The Blues Brothers (with John Belushi) and Ghostbusters and has had a long career as a film actor and screenwriter.

There were so many to choose from, but we narrowed down our 11 favorites from one of the greatest comedic performers who ever li...
Idk why I even wasted space on my DVR for Saturday Night Live. The writing on that show is so horrible now I hate to watch it. I wonder if John Belushi, Phill Hartman, and Chris Farley ever had to put up with that kind of garbage writing
been watching Saturday Night Live for 19 minutes now. can honestly say, haven't even cracked a smile Chris Farley and John Belushi are rolling over in their graves
I had forgotten that Saturday Night Live is no longer funny as it was when John Belushi was on it.

Bob Shenise It was Marshall Checker, of the legendary Checker brothers, who first discovered them in the gritty blues clubs of Chicago's South Side in 1969 and handed them their big break nine years later with an introduction to music-industry heavyweight and host of television's Rock Concert, Don Kirshner. Actually, none of that is true, but it's the story that Saturday Night Live's Paul Shaffer told on April 22, 1978 as he announced the worldwide television debut of that night's musical guest, the Blues Brothers—the not-quite-real, not-quite-fake musical creation of SNL cast members Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi.
