Saturday Night Live changed the
face of television: it introduced brash new stars, trashed TV taboos, and had
an impact on American life, laughter, and politics.
Dozens of stars, writers, guest hosts, contributors, and
craftsmen recall the backstage stories, behind-the-scenes gossip, feuds,
foibles, drugs, sex, struggles, and calamities, including personal details
never before revealed. Stars interviewed include Mike Myers, Chris Rock, Bill
Murray, Tom Hanks, Adam Sandler, Chevy Chase, Will Ferrell, Dan Aykroyd, Steve
Martin, Jon Lovitz, Jane Curtain, Chris Kattan, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Garrett
Morris, Molly Shannon, Damon Wayans, Chris Elliott, Julie Sweeney, Norm Macdonald,
and Paul Simon—plus writers like Al Franken, Conan O’Brien, Larry David, Rosie
Shuster, Jack Handey, Robert Smigel, Don Novello, and others who got their big
breaks as part of the SNL team.
Live from New York does what no
other book about the show has ever done: it lets the people who were there tell
the story in their own words, blunt and loving and uncensored. Download and start listening now!
