Sadhvi Sez: Saturday Night Live: Still Funny After All These Years

SADHVI

I really enjoy a good joke, or a good comedy skit, because I like to laugh.
I think me and my college roommates saw just about every “Saturday Night Live” show from the first one, which was in 1976 maybe, until we either graduated or dropped out of college.
That hour was the high point of our week. John Belushi, Dan Akroyd, Chevy Chase, Gilda Ratner, Bill Murray…all very funny and off-the-wall comedians doing skits that were mostly very funny, covering topics that no one wanted to tackle, or situations that were downright bizarre. The musical guests rocked too, and you just never knew who was going to be playing that week; it might be Carly Simon, it might be The Cars, it might be The Rolling Stones (with David Bowie popping in)!
Since I don’t own a TV, I wasn’t able to watch the season premier of Saturday Night Live (SNL) last night. But thanks to computers, I got a chance to watch the opening skit today. I just happened on it, while surfing the news.
I laughed out loud. I hope your week ahead is full of moments of laughter and feeling “wild and crazy”!
