In Season 2, episode 2 of Museum Access, we're going to a special exhibition at the Museum of Broadcast Communications, "Saturday Night Live: The Experience." Dive into the creative process of the show that we've all come to know and love since 1975. We'll explore a week in the life of the show, go behind-the-scenes to see the writing process, the table read, set construction, make-up and costume design, and finally, even see the live broadcast on Saturday night. You won't want to miss this one! Check out http://museumaccess.com for a list of local airings.

Alec Baldwin on SNL tonight, just turned it off.
Robert Feder, Hey-Hey! - Just days before Saturday Night Live: The Experience ends its long run at Chicago’s Museum of Broadcast Communications, famed "Saturday Night Live” writer Robert Smigel will turn up as the final special guest in the exhibition’s “Conversations in Comedy” series. The event will be March 28 at the museum, 360 North State Street. Sources will neither confirm nor deny rumors that "Triumph the Insult Comic Dog” also will make an appearance. The exhibit, open since October 2017, closes March 31. (Here is the link for tickets). https://www.eventbrite.com/e/conversations-in-comedy-robert-smigel-tickets-57887288438
I went to this yesterday (Sunday)...It was awesome to see what goes on during the week to prepare for a show. I think anyone who has watched SNL over the years will appreciate this exhibit.
This was hands down one of the best experiences of my life! Have been an SNL fan for almost 12 years now, so this was paradise for me! ♥️😍
Today we celebrate Don Novello (or more famously known as Father Guido Sarducci on "Saturday Night Live"). https://www.facebook.com/TheItalianAmericanPage1/photos/a.332658437072040/745970605740819/?type=3&theater
Does anyone recall a sketch where a wedding guest (possibly Horatio Sanz) does 'hand interpretations' of popular songs ?
