- Norm McDonald for weekend update. What the heck even happened to him?

- Tina Fey for weekend update and her Palin impersonation tapes should be looped at the Smithsonian for contributions to American culture. No dis meant to Governor Palin but Fey is an American comedic icon in large part due to one of the best political impersonations in American history.

- Dana Carvey for his George HW Bush impersonation. My fave was the 1992 presidential debate. Brilliant!


I know they're other SNL greats but I don't go back that far to remember them when they were on. Name your own.

I am ashamed to admit this, but I used to laugh myself sick over Jim Bruer's "Goat-Boy."

Darrell Hammond. Severely underrated in comparison with his colleagues, despite creating some of the most memorable participants in skits.

Absolutely. How could I have forgotten Darrell Hammond?! His impressions were brilliant. Loved his Clinton.

Wasn't he fired from "SNL"?
No idea.

I just recall he had a really cynical and funny way he did the news. I went back and saw some of his old stuff from YouTube. Still funny but it seemed funnier then to me that now. Maybe Tina-Amy and Seth had better writers or relevant up ti date news content is funnier to me.

They've got some good people on now too. I guess we think more highly of them after they leave.

The original cast. It hasn't been the same for decades.

Anybody that doesn't look like they are looking at a far wall to read their lines, but of course the originals were the best. The rest have been trying to get to that level, but have not succeded.
