SummaryDuring the 1978 season, the original cast of “Saturday Night Live” performed some of their all-time funniest sketches on the show. Now, ten years later, Lorne Michaels’ second cast performs some of their all-time funniest sketches on the show. From the bold singing of “The Penis Song” on a nude beach, to the excellent Wayne’s World shwingfest, or simple premises such as Mel Gibson playing a much-adorned gynecologist, and the Bush-Dukakis debate, “SNL” proved it could still pull some of the funniest jokes to date.
Despite the laughs and good times, everyone at “Saturday Night Live”, and the world over, was saddened by the death of original cast member Gilda Radner on the day of the season finale, hosted by Steve Martin, perhaps the saddest one of all.
