Saturday Night Live Episodes
Saturday Night Live is one of the funniest television shows of all-time. Stars such as Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, John Belushi, and Dennis Miller have had memorable careers with the popular late-night show. Below are some Saturday Night Live episodes that are etched in immortality.
Peyton Manning, 2007
Some of the funniest skits in Saturday Night Live history occurred when Peyton Manning hosted the show. Known more for his football skills, Manning showed that he could have a television career after his playing days are over. One particular skit involved Manning sitting on the porch drinking coffee with one of the show's female cast members, talking about his butthole and walking around with sliced ham stuffed down his pants. Another funny skit had Manning playing the role of a terrible role model for a youth group.
John Belushi, Samurai
One of the most grotesque comedians to ever grace Saturday Night Live, John Belushi's samurai character is one of the best and most popular characters in Saturday Night Live history. Belushi's samurai would speak fake Japanese, while appearing in places that a samurai warrior would never be seen; such as behind the counter of a convenience store, or at an Italian family diner.
Chevy Chase and Kevin Nealon Doing the News
Chevy Chase and Kevin Nealon are other popular Hollywood actors who got their starts on Saturday Night Live. Among other skits, the two were known for playing news anchors. One of the more memorable skits is when they were in each front of the camera, where Chevy Chase proceeded to mock the inept Nealon.
One of the most popular Saturday Night Live comedians was Eddie Murphy. Murphy performed notable characters such as Buckwheat and Mr. Robinson in Mr Robinson's Neighborhood. He also performed in the unforgettable skit with Joan Rivers where he played a reservationist at Club Doolittle.
At one time Saturday Night Live was one of the most popular shows on television. Not only did the late-night show feature some of the best comedians in the world, but the show offered its audience with an array of talented hosts.
