A hilarious look at what life was really like inside Saturday Night Live

When 21-year old Jay Mohr moved from New Jersey to New York City to pursue his dream of stand-up stardom, he never thought the first real job he'd land would be on Saturday Night Live. But, surprisingly, that's just what he did. What followed were two unbelievable, grueling, and exciting years of feverishly keeping pace with his talented cohorts, outmaneuvering the notorious vices that claimed the lives of other cast members, and struggling at all costs for the holy grail of late-night show business: airtime.

In Gasping for Airtime, Jay offers an intimate account of the inner workings of Saturday Night Live. He dishes on the guest hosts (John Travolta, Shannen Doherty, Charles Barkley), the musical guests (Kurt Cobain, Steven Tyler, Eric Clapton), and of course his SNL castmates (Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers and David Spade). Refreshingly honest and laugh-out-loud funny, this audio will appeal to both fans of Jay Mohr and to devotees of Saturday Night Live.

About the Author
Author Jay Mohr

Jay Mohr first received audience notice with his impressions of Christopher Walken, Dick Vitale, and Sean Penn on Saturday Night Live. Soon after that, he landed his breakthrough film role as a rival sports agent in the blockbuster hit Jerry Maguire, following that up in a touching good-guy role in Picture Perfect. Other film credits include Playing by Heart, Suicide Kings, Seeing Other People, Even Money, The Groomsmen, Pay It Forward, Street Kings, and Go, as well as comedic leads in Kings Ransom and Are We There Yet? On television, Mohr created, executive produced, and hosted Last Comic Standing. He won the Favorite New TV Comedy Award at the 35th Peoples Choice Awards. He is also well known for his sports work as host of FOX Sports Nets NFL This Morning and narrator of the award-winning Beyond the Glory. Additionally, Mohr executive produced and hosted the ESPN series Mohr Sports, an original weekly comedy, music, and sports talk hour. He continues to sell out venues across the country with his standup routine.
