First edition stated, also first printing with number 1 in line. Very good with no markings and light wear in a used looking jacket.. Top-notch, and worth reading even if you've read the oral history.
Check it out to see how much information can still be found beyond the remembrances of people who were there. Fascinating "backstage" look at a singular comedy show. Covers the first ten years of the show focusing primarily on the first five or six seasons. The book is full of strange and embarrassing tales of the cast and crew. Pride, racism, sexism, serious drug abuse, eating disorders, angry outbursts, self-centeredness, backstabbing, and manipulation were just a few of the things found on a weekly basis in Studio 8H and Floor 17 of 30 Rock.
Prepare to look at your favorite "early years" Fascinating "backstage" look at a singular comedy show. Prepare to look at your favorite "early years" SNL actors in a new light. My one complaint: too much time was given to all the ins and outs of how the show was developed. It makes the front end of the book drag and few readers will really care about that kind of thing, we are more interested in the cast and the making of the episodes. The book also provides an interesting look at human nature. It's amazing and horrifying to watch how the fame and money completely change nearly everyone who finds success through the show.
There seemed to be constant bickering among the actors and writers when anyone started to really outshine the others on the show. You couldn't make up drama this good. There have already been several TV shows about the making of a TV show, but none are as turbulent and dramatic as the backstage of SNL.
Will never happen, but it's fun to imagine it. Very fun read. Apr 14, Kurt rated it really liked it. Too much about the sketches, way too much about Lorne and a bunch of guys I don't give two good damns about getting the show on the air, all at the expense of deeper looks at the cast. We get that the show is very important and the analysis of the sketches does, I must say, help with that , and we get that Belushi is very charismatic and energetic, that Aykroyd is brilliant both as a writer and performer, that Chevy Chase is very cool in a certain way, but these guys go from team players to ins Too much about the sketches, way too much about Lorne and a bunch of guys I don't give two good damns about getting the show on the air, all at the expense of deeper looks at the cast.
We get that the show is very important and the analysis of the sketches does, I must say, help with that , and we get that Belushi is very charismatic and energetic, that Aykroyd is brilliant both as a writer and performer, that Chevy Chase is very cool in a certain way, but these guys go from team players to insane megalomaniacs in very short order and I'd have liked to have read a little more about that transition and whether it was total.
SNL is available on Netflix instant play, if you're interested, start watching and reading, the book is very good and very interesting and I, for one, had forgotten or never realized without the book to guide me how impressively different and bold the old show was.

Jun 09, Todd rated it really liked it. I was lucky enough to have this book recommended to me by one of the authors Jeff Weingrad whom I met in New Jersey. I found Jeff extremely entertaining in the short time we talked and happy to say this book is an accurate reflection of his entertaining manner. I won't pretend I started watching SNL when it began I was 9 but did start watching it around so happily the second half of the book had more performers I was familiar with. That being said, the first half detailing - i I was lucky enough to have this book recommended to me by one of the authors Jeff Weingrad whom I met in New Jersey.
That being said, the first half detailing - is hugely informative on how the show came about. If you are a fan of SNL in any era, I recommend you read this book if only to compare the era you like with the early days. Aug 19, Laura rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction. Unlike the recent Tom Shales version, this is a more journalistic account of the classic show, and in some ways is a more engaging read for benefiting from the authors' interpretations and observations.
It also has a far, far more detailed account than the Shales book of the disastrous Jean Doumanian year, which Shales finesses to the extent of devoting only around two cursory pages to it. For that reason as well as others, I think this book is superior to the Shales one, at least for an account Unlike the recent Tom Shales version, this is a more journalistic account of the classic show, and in some ways is a more engaging read for benefiting from the authors' interpretations and observations.

It's really a four and a half star book. A fun, terrifying and insightful Look into the creation and early existence of one of the most influential comedy shows ever. I only wish it was longer and covered even more history.
Aug 02, Art rated it it was amazing Shelves: chicago , history , read-in , cannabis. This big and well-written book documents the origins and first ten years of Saturday Night. Lorne demanded that no one over thirty work on the show. Each of the early cast members worked identical contracts, earning about thirty thousand a season, a paltry sum then. Pot became a staple of Saturday Night, used openly in the offices. People laughed all time while a manic sense of hilarity prevailed. It became the most chaotic, complicated and ambitious weekly program in television, write the authors.
The show valued inspiration, accident and passion more than control, habit and discipline. For all the attention paid to what Saturday Night put on the show, how it got on the air also intrigued the fans, which brings us to Saturday Night Live: The Experience, an interactive museum exhibit now in Chicago. A recent trip for that immersion led to reading this book for more background. The exhibition in Chicago recreates a week at Saturday Night, culminating in a replica of Studio 8H, where we sit for a quick program.
