Joey Spiotto - Wayne's World

For going on 40 years, the phrase “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!” has been a cornerstone of American pop culture. The phrase announces every single episode of the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live, which has been the breeding ground for such legendary comedians and actors as Jim Belushi, Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell and so many others.

Week after week, some of the funniest people in the world create a live comedy show and broadcast it to millions. It’s a hit-or-miss effort that has produced incredible highs, disappointing lows and everything in between. After almost 40 years though, the show has been so consistently influential, we tend to take its existence for granted.

When you think back on all the good memories it’s hard not to get nostalgic. Wayne’s World. The Land Shark. Coneheads. Celebrity Jeopardy. Stefon. The list goes on and on, which is why Gallery 1988 West, the newest location of Los Angeles’ landmark pop culture art gallery, chose SNL as the subject of its latest exhibit.

After the jump, check out a small sample of the work in the show and find out more. Read More »

James Franco is everywhere. This week he’ll be travelling to Oz with Sam Raimi, and next week he’s heading to Spring Break with Harmony Korine. A few years ago, he was at 30 Rock shooting a documentary about Saturday Night Live. The film, Saturday Night, offered viewers unprecedented access behind the long-running sketch comedy show and garnered rave reviews when it hit the festival circuit in 2010. Since then the movie seemingly disappeared, leaving documentary and comedy fans clamouring for some kind of update.

Franco has finally given us that update, and the news is encouraging. Though the film was wrapped up in some rights issues, it has a new distributor and they’re currently figuring out how to release it. “It will come out,” said Franco. Read More »

Academy-Award winner and current nominee Christoph Waltz hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend and used the occasion to poke fun at his two-time collaborator, Quentin Tarantino. The SNL team created a sketched called Djesus Uncrossed starring Waltz as Jesus, back from the dead and hell bent on revenge. It features obvious and hilarious references to Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds and, of course, Django Unchained. Check it out below. Read More »

Jeremy Renner hosted Saturday Night Live this week and, considering he was a part of the year’s most successful film, the subject obviously came up. I’m talking about The Avengers, and SNL went all out, dressing cast members as all of the main characters: Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Nick Fury and Maria Hill. They even dressed Bobby Moynihan as the Hulk. Renner suited up as Hawkeye and brought up an issue many of us were thinking about during Joss Whedon‘s film. Check out the funny skit below.
