My Dream Episode of SNL

I’ve been watching SNL for over 25 years now, and with all due respect to the common wisdom that your favorite SNL cast is your first cast, it’s as funny now as it’s ever been. I’m especially a fan of the newly diverse(ish) cast (they still need some Asian comedians).

But what if I could put together my all-time dream show? I’m glad you asked! These are the people I personally enjoyed most, while they were on the show (post-show career does NOT count). And this is MY dream show –you’re welcome to argue with me, or make up your own. Just post it in the comments.

NOTE: Although I was born right around the time SNL started airing, I didn’t start watching until my early teens, so that first ten years or so might be under-represented.
