Watch Saturday Night Live

The nation's longest-running sketch comedy show, SNL started as late night eye candy and has since established itself as a household name, reserving a well-deserved place in comedy history. Each episode is made up of gags, gigs, and gaffs produced by some of television's most recognizable personalities. Throughout the years, some of Hollywood's brightest, most buffoonish, and best actors, writers, and stand-up comedians have gone through the SNL wringer. Each episode of Saturday Night Live, typically hosted by a celebrity or person of cultural importance, also showcases a featured musical guest.
