Film Description

The list of alumni from American TV institution Saturday Night Live reads like a veritable who’s who of comedy, music & television from the past 30 years.

Since 1975, SNL has introduced TV audiences to the finest of American comedy talent, with its roster of regular stars and guest hosts featuring the cream of film and TV funny men and women. The show has also consistently picked the finest names in rock, pop and soul to appear live, from established big names to the best up and coming talent.

SNL's first incarnation introduced the American public to Aykroyd, Belushi, Chase, and Radner, as well as its regular skits and parodies and its rotating guest host system that have remained constant for more than 30 years.

Spread across a mammoth eight discs, this set contains 24 full, uncut episodes featuring appearances from Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris, Laraine Newman, Andy Kaufman, Richard Pryor (in blistering form), Rob Reiner, Candice Bergen, Elliott Gould, Kris Kristofferson, Raquel Welch, Lily Tomlin, Madeline Kahn, Anthony Perkins, Desi Arnaz, Peter Boyle, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.

On the music front the show features an amazing line-up of guest stars with fantastic live performances covering all genres from rock to pop, via reggae, country, blue-eyed soul and grittier funk, taking in the nascent punk rock movement along the way. The list includes diverse names such as Abba, Billy Preston, Randy Newman, Gil Scott-Heron, Martha Reeves, The Stylistics, Neil Sedaka, Jimmy Cliff, The Loving Spoonful’s John Sebastian, Carly Simon and Rita Coolidge.
