Watch: Original SNL Cast Members Discuss The Show In 1975 Interview
Watch the original Saturday Night Live cast visit the set of The Tomorrow Show prior to the 1975 debut of Lorne Michaels’ iconic sketch show.
Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radnor, John Belushi, Jane Curtain, Laraine Newman, Garrett Morris and George Coe: The hilarious, talented original members of Saturday Night Live. Can you believe it’s been 41 years since its debut?
The cast, along with creator Lorne Michaels, made an appearance on Tom Snyder’s The Tomorrow Show on the day the first-ever episode premiered. Although it took awhile before it gained traction with audiences (the first season featured more musical performances than actual sketches), the show ultimately became a “New York institution” and catapulted most of the comedians into stardom.
Today (October 11, 2016) marks the 41st anniversary of Saturday Night Live.
