Taschen’s Saturday Night Live. The Complete History


Photo: Taschen

Whether you love or hate SNL in its current iteration, there’s no denying what the show has done for comedy and pop culture as we know it. The show continues on as a late night favorite and still produces some of our biggest stars. Taschen collects that 40 year history in a new book, Saturday Night Live. The complete history: 

On October 11, 1975 at 11:30 p.m., NBC viewers who tuned in to the network’s new late night show saw a sketch featuring John Belushi repeating, in a thick foreign accent, nonsensical phrases about wolverines being read to him by head writer Michael O’Donohue. Abruptly, O’Donohue clutched his heart and collapsed onto the floor. Belushi paused, raised his eyebrow, and then did the same. Posing as the stage manager, Chevy Chase entered the set and feigned confusion before breaking character and announcing to the camera: “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!

In that instant, television, which had long been out of touch with the young and hip, experienced the first seismic tremors of a major paradigm shift. TV comedy as we know it today owes it all to Saturday Night Live, the show that dared to take risks (not least the fact that it’s broadcast live), challenge the censors, and celebrate the work of offbeat writer-performers. Hundreds of gifted and dedicated people have contributed to Saturday Night Live over the years, and this book pays homage to their groundbreaking work. The list of esteemed alumni, most of whom were complete unknowns when they debuted on SNL, reads like a Who’s Who of the past 4 decades in comedy: John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Al Franken, Eddie Murphy, Martin Short, Billy Crystal, Dana Carvey, Phil Hartman, Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Adam Sandler, Conan O’Brien, Chris Rock, Will Ferrell, Tracy Morgan, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Kristin Wiig, Seth Meyers, Fred Armisen, and Bill Hader—to name just a few.

Now, as SNL celebrates its 40th anniversary, TASCHEN brings you the ultimate tribute to the show. To research this book, editor and author Alison Castle was given not only full access to SNL’s archives, but also the rare opportunity to watch the cast and crew at work. She spent the better part of season 39 in the trenches, learning how everything comes together in just six days for the live performance.Part encyclopedia and part behind-the-scenes tour, Saturday Night Live: The Book covers both the making of the show and its remarkable history.

TV reporter says “F*ck It” and quits on live TV in support of Marijuana Legalization

This will probably go down in history as one of the most badass ways to quit a job. Alaskan news anchor, Charlo Greene, announced during a live TV broadcast that she was not only quitting her job, but she was also the president of the Alaskan Cannabis Club. Greene has said she quit in such a memorable fashion in order to draw attention to the legalization marijuana. We can’t think of any better way to do so.

You can live like a Jedi in this Star Wars house

I’ve never seen Obi-Wan Kenobi’s house, but if I had to guess, it would probably look just like this place. This pad, which is located in Korea, was designed by Moon Hoon to look like a spaceship. The interior is a little less modern than the exterior but it’s very nice nonetheless. One of the coolest features is probably the floor-to-ceiling bookshelf that doubles as a secret door. Take a closer look at the residence below.

The one thing this house is missing is a Stars Wars themed home theater.
